Would you like to credit this resource? I found a website with things to eat in a very similar order. Just some foods on that list aren't included in your's. And cherry an tangerine are switched. Lime, lemon and orange are also together, but lemon is in the exact spot, and mango is at the top. Very similar order. I'm guessing that you copied it.

I wouldn't put too much of the above in... These are all among the highest rated acidic/alkaline fruits. Not sure how it would affect your water chemistry, and every now and then it might not hurt. But I'm a better safe than sorry person.

taking a break from fish-keeping.

I can't credit the original source if information as it is from another forum. The advocation or promotion of other forums as they can direct users from this forum to the other linked forum

Lol then why did you ask Pog to credit it if it isn't allowed?
Let's just call it general knowledge, you can't credit every word you say on here.
