    They may raise your ph a tad but nothing enough to worry about, as long as you boiled them I would say go for it :)

    Ph really doesn't matter as much as what people think. I would think they will adjust with no problem.

    If it worries you keep an eye on it but i really don't think you have anything to worry about. Unless you are keeping wild caught South/Central Americans you are okay :)

    I like the arch they create in the first picture but I too prefer the second as well. Looking good, has your ph leveled off?

    I like the second also. I would keep a close eye on the Ph as I know some bone raises it. I would put extra driftwood in to balance it out, (driftwood lowers Ph)
