Yikes! I accidentally spillled a LARGE amount of Hikari Bites in my Tank...
I never do this....but for some reason i did this morning....
While feeding this morning I held the container of food over the water while feeding. And spilled a large amount of Hikari First Bites in my 10 gallon.
I recently released 4 platy fry in with my 2 mom's. They havent got the hang of competing for food yet and so I have been putting more than normal amounts of food so they get something to eat. One of the fry is actually going to the top of the water today.
Well I had a limited amount of time this morning when this happened. So I did a quick 50% water change only...no gravel vacuuming. I have already performed 2 partial water changes this week with vacuuming. And I am worried if I do another today it will be to much change...
Should I leave it be till next weeks pwc's ...seeing that is was powdered food? Or go ahead and do a gravel vacuum?I Love My Fish

There is no justifiable rationale for waiting, Vac it now.
Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

I've heard this story a dozen times. I'd advice using a measuring spoon or just your fingers and DO NOT pour directly from the food container.25 Gal - Tropical
