    Do you really need to do a water change if levels are fine?

    Ok, thanks for all the fast responses. I will just keep to my normal routine about 25-30% weekly.

    Do you really need to do a water change if levels are fine?

    Do you really need to do a water change if your levels are fine? I have a 10 gal moderately planted tank with 6 neon tetras. If my levels are good, do I really need to do a water change? Ammonia: 0-.25(It's in between not fully yellow but not quite the lime green) Nitrite: 0 Nitrate: 20-30 ppm...

    Unique stocking Ideas for 10 gal

    1) Ok so right now I'm looking at salt and pepper coryies, maybe killifish, and a centerpiece fish that I haven't decided on yet 2) Or another idea I had was salt and pepper coryies and a betta. Since I have black sand, a black background, and a bunch of green I think a white plakat would stand...

    Unique stocking Ideas for 10 gal

    The clown killifish sound awesome but they're really pricy :(. What about other top swimming fish? I hate how limited you are with the nano tanks. On another note, could I do dwarf corydoras? I was thinking maybe pygmy corydoras or salt and pepper corydoras? People have told me they breed too...

    Unique stocking Ideas for 10 gal

    Right now I have a 10-gallon tank that is heavily planted. I have some neon tetras in there but I'm thinking about mixing it up and replacing them. The only problem is I don't know what to put in their place! I would like something unique, but as I said before I have no idea! I'm pretty new to...

    What causes blue green algae?

    Thanks for all the help guys! I think I'm gonna try manually removing it and doing a couple of small(20%) water changes in the next couple of days. I think the cause is that I don't have enough flow on that side of the tank, maybe I'll get a HOB filter to help or the Ultralife. I'm also getting...

    What causes blue green algae?

    See title. I have just recently had blue-green algae, and it has gotten so much worse this morning. It's almost fully covered my substrate which stinks because I can't physically remove it. I know you can get products, but what causes it so it doesn't come back? I have a sponge filter(am I not...

    How to get ammonia to 0

    Ok. I forgot to mention Saturday’s are my wc days. So then I’ll start doing 50% each week instead of 20% to keep the nitrates in check

    How to get ammonia to 0

    Ya, I assumed so. Ok, I'll do a 50% wc today to get down the nitrates and maybe another one in like 2 or 3 days. Hopefully, get it down to like 10 ppm. Then figure out my dosing schedule. I'll order some floaters in the next week or two and hopefully doing that will help get rid of the algae and...

    How to get ammonia to 0

    Ok. The cherry shrimp are not dying from the nitrates though it's because I just got them and the change in parameters and such. So I should get another filter? I think I might try getting some floaters and see how that works. If not, I might try the filter. But also, getting ammonia to 0 would...

    How to get ammonia to 0

    6 neon tetras and 1 or 2 cherry shrimp(tried to start a colony some died some got eaten. Probably all dead at this point, I haven't seen any in a couple of days:()

    How to get ammonia to 0

    Ok. I’ll stick to my normal water changes. I’ve always done 20 percent water changes should I start doing 30? If I do 50 I feel like that will raise the ammonia. Or when I get the nitrates down then should I stop doing water changes? Or should I do a 50%, test the levels of ammonia a day later...

    Alright, sad news. My filtered water is the same. So do I get some floaters and just stop doing water changes?
