I'm new to the aquarium world and recently bought a 10-gallon starter kit a few weeks ago that included a sample pkg of both Stress Coat & AquaSafe. I used the recommended amounts of these and I also added 2 tablespoons of aquarium salt. My question now though is what chemicals do I need to use for a water change and what is best?? Should I treat any new water with the required amounts of both products? I have a 2.5 gallon water jug and bucket am doing a 25% water change/week. Also, I read in a few spots that it is a good idea to let your tank and fish "do it's thing" for 4-6 weeks before doing the 1st vacuuming. Is this true? I worry that I have stirred up a lot of the gravel (translate to extra food and fish poop) and am concerned about waiting so long to vacuum. I have 2 Dalmation Molles, a highfin pleco and 4 plants (java fern, anubias and wisteria) PLUS 9 fry in a holding net that are 5 days old. Any help is VERY, VERY appreciated as one of my fish is currently separated in a 1 gallon tank and is not doing well. Looks like it may be ich, but he is also swimming very irregularly Please help!
