Rep: katbeck99 is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Will my axolotls be affected by this change in pH?

Ok, so here's the deal. I have a new 50 gallon long that has just finished cycling (Ammonia 0ppm, Nitrite 0ppm, Nitrate 10-20ppm) but the pH is 6.8-7.2 (can't tell exactly) and the water hardness is somewhat low. However, the tank my two axies are in now has a pH of about 7.4-7.8 and the water is somewhat hard. Should they be fine if I move them in now, or should I try to match the pH and hardness? The only reason I feel like I might not have to is because when people receive their axolotls from people in other states/countries, they have no idea what their tank parameters were and the majority survive and thrive in their new homes. Any thoughts?
