thnks. thought plecos live tog with altums in the rivers of s. america, so impression was that at least some plecos share a common parameter with altums. But I also can't seem to find any. Strange.

Are you going to eventually raise the ph?
Any new livestock added in will experience ph shock. Maybe you have chance by acclimatizing new fish gradually. Or you could try a small common pleco, those are really tough.

maintaining the ph . no problem to aclimatising the pleco but they wont survive after , even the common pleco. not sure why cos many plecos are caught in the same waters as altums
