No test strips rn but last i checked 3 days ago i was at 0 nitrite 0.25 nitrates and 7ish ph btw I got used media from fish store i for fish i rinsed it in some tank water he also gave me i put it in behind my filters cartridge

    Hi, the bubbles just look like small air bubbles trapped under the front lip of your tank to me, probably from air pumped from your filter when you started it up, try brushing them out & see if it disappears. Nice looking fish.

    I think my water is good unless its bad from tap i need to get A better kit I just used 4 test strips but i think the fish looks really healthy tho but hard to see him always hiding from me hmm vould it be from too much food? I just feed him a small pinch of flake food and a few mini hikari gold pellets tryna get him to come out infront me but he won't when i go away n stay still start eating

    Took this bout a week ago 0405192055.jpg

    Yeah the bubbles popped most of them anyway but they feel filmy maybe I'm started to get bacteria in tank more? Havnt had fish in along time lol
