Do you think it will be safe?

    I would like to do a 25% water change tomorrow and move some pieces in the tank due to the fact my driftwood almost fell and hit my guppies today.

    I started my ten gallon tank February 12
    But did not put water, turn heater on, add TSS, turn my filter on, add 6 leopard danios( now been rehomed to a 30 gallon), until February 29 and I just added a female and Male guppies and 6 ghost shrimp on the 7th of March.
    Here are my readings
    Day 1

    ammonia: 0 ppm
    pH: 7.0
    NO2 Nitrates : 0 ppm
    NO3 Nitrites 0 ppm
    Temp:76
    Iron: 0.5

    Day 4

    ammonia: 0 ppm
    pH: 7.0
    NO2 Nitrates : 0ppm
    NO3 Nitrites 0 ppm
    Temp:76
    Iron: 0.8

    Day 8

    ammonia: 0ppm
    pH: 7.0
    NO2 Nitrates : 10ppm
    NO3 Nitrites 0ppm
    Temp:76
    Iron: 1.0

    Today

    ammonia: 0ppm
    pH: 7.0
    NO2 Nitrates : 15 ppm
    NO3 Nitrites 0ppm
    Temp:78
    Iron: 1.0


    I plan on fulling a bucket up with tank water and putting all the oranments in there while I move it around and place them some where new in the tank

    My other questoin is should I get a air pump even though I have plants in the tank I have 12 java ferns, annibus, and 2 medium java moss balls.

    Plus I plan on put prime in when I do the water change.

    My tap water has

    ammonia: 0ppm
    pH: 7.0
    NO2 Nitrates : 0ppm
    NO3 Nitrites 0ppm

    Im not clear as to your question.

    An airpump is not necessary unless you have an air-driven filter. Beyond that it is an optional extra that is used to:

    a) disturb the water's surface
    b) aesthetics

    I went ahead and did it and everything is fine even found a baby snail who I think hitchhiked on my annibus plant
