Water change question!

PoppyD88

I just finished cycling my 55 gallon tank and it has 50lbs of live rock. I cycled it with Dr Tim’s ammonia, table shrimp, and the ghost fish food method. My ammonia and nitrites have spiked and decreased. Nitrate has been readable. Should I do a water change before I put new fish in, or should I not change the water?

Personally, I would, but I’m of the opinion that you can never really be too proactive when it comes to water changes. Prevents a LOT of problems.
