What is a good goldfish pH level?

I just learned how to test pH.


Answer by  techgurl (97)

Goldfish are pretty hardy and can withstand a greater variance in pH than most other fish. 7. 2 - 7. 6 is generally the accepted ideal.


Answer by  sdblack99 (329)

Goldfish prefer a fairly neutral pH level, some say about 7. 5 is ideal. That being said I've seen them in all types of conditions andIi would think that anywhere around 7 is fine. They wont like seriously basic conditions like a cichlid would (around 8. 3), or anything too acidic (like low 6's)

Goldfish will do best with a pH level in the 7. 2 - 7. 6 range. You should do partial water changes every seven to ten days to maintain your tank's pH. The new water should sit for at least a day before being added to the tank. This will help remove chlorine from the water.

The proper, healthy pH for the water in a tank of a pet goldfish is anywhere between 6.5 and 8.25.


Answer by  jacknmac (15)

Goldfish require a neutral pH level in the range of 7. 2 to 7. 6 and aeration should be supplied to maintain that level.


Answer by  helper1 (35)

The best pH for goldfish is between the 7. 2-7. 6 range. Although Goldfish are considered a hearty breed and can withstand variations.
