    Yeah, you will hear terms of PH shock associated with PH swings, when in reality it is osmotic shock that occurs and kills the fish by forcing minerals out of the fish's body too fast. There can be...

    As I see it, the high PH range kit shows it below 7.4, and the low ph range kit shows it more blue than 7.2, then my guess is ph of 7.3.

    Safe does not interfere with antibio-tics. You can test for ammonia and nitrites during treatment. When either ammonia or nitrite hit close to 0.5ppm, do a 50% water change.
