    Just did my first water change today. Only did a 2.5 gallon change since I added TSS 2 week's ago. I had a film build up on the inside of the glass as well that I had to clean. The fish like the new water.

    Congrats! lol
    For furture weekly changes, consider a 20% change to bring down nitrates, replenish oxeygen and minerals your fish need.

    Don't blame you for being cautious. A finished cycle is reason to celebrate!!
    There's very little bacteria in the water. Even at this point, the beneficial bacteria in TSS should have adhered to filter media, gravel and decorations.
