How often should I take everything out and deep clean the tank and completely change the water? I’ve had an problem with the ammonia being a little high, today it was .25. I did another 30% water change. But I had an incident with frozen mysis shrimp for the first and only time getting stuck in the filter and it shot back out and it I think it’s contributing to my ammonia spike because I am seeing little teeny tiny pieces of things floating around his 3 gallon betta tank. His high ph is at 7.8, nitrite 0, nitrate 0. I have 2 moss balls and catappa leaves and drift wood in there as well along with his gravel and silicon anenome, hiding log, 2 thermometers, filter, heater. I’ve done 25-40% water changes for 4 days and ammonia has been fluctuating between .25-.50. I am concerned about the things floating in the water..... is it time for a water change and to start over? Thank you!
