Hi there,

Either of those fish will breed with the blues, however long term you might be safer with rusties as they won't be as easily inhaled when the blues get larger laugh.gif.

I also find rusties get along with other fish much better, perspicax can get a little antisocial dry.gif.

Carbonate hardness helps buffer your pH, so having it low could cause pH shifts which may be to the detriment of your fish. To add to your carbobate hardness you need simply add carbonates wink.gif. A common cheap source is Sodium Bicarbonate, also known as Baking Soda.
