- thefisherman
Thanks, pH is 7.0, kH 5, gH 6

I love the Tim Horton's cup. Lol
Double double :) it's an addiction, really

what type of leaves are those/ what are they for? just for more tannis? haha i kind of like the natural look of tannis though
Those are oak leaves, I rinse them then dry them out then add them. I think they are Red Oak if I'm not mistaken. The Synodontis love them.
