Since one of my boys passing, my divided 10 gallon housing 2 males has been housing a single male plakat betta, a nerite, and a mystery snail. I got bored with it and started converting it into a blackwater using some Indian almond leaves and mostly oak leaves (Which were easy to obtained sience its fall lol) and twigs. The tannins are leaching into the water, I can wait for that maroon! Questions:
- Are water changes the same as if it were not blackwater or can to many remove all of my tannins?
- Can I run my filter as normal?
- Will the tannins have any offect on my betta or snails?
- What recommended tank mates, if any, should I add to my tank and when? I really wast ADFs
