Newbie w/ 2 Tanks Hungry to Improve!

JessicasFancies

Never had a tank and at age 35, I spotted a few sad fish in a local NEWSAGENT and my pity got the better of me. By the time I done my research, got some time off work to buy some kit and get back to that area of my city - fishes AND tank were gone :-/

So I purchased a black moor from a UK pet store franchise and started making my first mistakes. First tank was only 10L (grim) and I couldn’t understand why water was cloudy after 1 hour. Next day I went to a small business pet store & she sold me a better filter & air pump and recommended a platy for company for my black moor (I now know this was not a good idea)

Quickly expanded to an 80L upgrading my filtration again and putting in better quality Airstones, substrate and reducing sharp decor

Months later, I have a second tank (30L) that has 2 baby gold orandas, 2 small black moors, 1 short tail baby black moor and the original platy. There’s also 4 tiny Nerite snails in there on cleaning duties. I replaced the original tank filter with an Interpet PF1 and a nano sponge filter with stone media.

In my large tank I have 2 adult red cap Butterfly Orandas and two baby white/silver Orandas. There’s also 2 blue neocardinia shrimp in there on their cleaning duties. I have a large AllPondSolutions EF1+ filter with 4 layers of media & UV sterilisation, 1 sponge filter & the original tank filter. One long air stone for oxygenation.

Small tank is on 2 day 50% water changes while I work out what tank upgrade I need.

Big tank is on 3 day 50% water changes currently.

I need to work out a clean and feed schedule as I don’t have one. Also need to weed out a few problems I have
