lou...louiec4413 said:I do feed them moderately, I don't have a master test kit but I have strips. Yeah I've only been doing 5 gallon water changes every few days. Are you saying 25 gallons of changing the water is better ?

I have several 55 gallon tanks and can tell you that the more water you change and the more often you do, the healthier the fish. The fish are swimming in the same water they do all their "business" in and traces of nitrogen from dissolved fish waste can be very toxic. If you're getting out the gear to change the water, then take a few more minutes and change out most of it. Your fish will have a better quality of life.
