I play around with my water change frequency. Some tanks I change daily and some every other 3-4 days.
Put it this way, water changes goes along with your feeding regime. Young fish eats more and you require frequent water changes. when it reaches adult hood, you can reduce feeding and thus...
Really don't understand what's the need to pull this fish out into isolation.
they are stronger when they are in a group.
Any why do we need carbon? To me its a time bomb and really unecessary...I am only using sponge filters in my tanks and in some tanks I don't even have filters. My fish...
I have never mention in my post that I am in for epsom salt for his case
You are not wrong to pull it out. But if there is a need for me to medicate I will not isolate the fish. Just my opinion.

I do use peletes in auto feeders when I am off to work.
I do not feed blood worms but I do use freeze...

From what I observe, as the fish age, the peppering will get more obvious.
I hope you are not using blood worms as your fish staples. If heart meals caused too much maintenience hassle, get a good pelete/dry food with...
Nice set up.

Just keep things simple and manageable.
my set up includes a bare tank running on sponge filters
for me consistent water changes and feeding regime is the key.
Congrats on your catch!
Looks like you got a good environment for them. However I would reduce on the variety of feeds.
Too much variety will increase the complications of troubleshooting when things goes wrong.
Turqoise are my favourite strains! Let me share some of mine
