    IPhone’s have Live Photo as an option. We can also rest a finger on the activation button and get multiple images per second for as long as you depress the trigger. This is another way to select the perfect shot Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Antibiotic treatment for fin rot

    Fin Rot has stabilized since performing daily water changes and reduction of nitrate/nitrite levels. I have been doing 75% water changes daily for about 7 days.

    Antibiotic treatment for fin rot

    .....once again. Should I assume that the pH 7.8 will drop on its own? I have read that a leaf rich in tanin and or a piece of drift wood will reduce the pH in a gentle way. Any validity to that. What do you recommend? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
