    Hey Slap sorry if you misunderstood I did say not always after A water change there has been A couple of times I found one the next morning after a water change but for the most part I have just been randomly losing them even middle of the road between water changes sometimes it day 1 after,sometimes 3, sometimes 5 days after its pretty sparatic,thats why I kind of ruled out WC's.I am getting the temps pretty close I'm doing about A 15%-20% WC weekly a 2-3 degree difference higher or lower in A 65 gallon tank will not have A dramatic temp swing I don't think.As far as ph goes it really stays pretty solid at 7.2 this is what it comes out of the tap at.

    at times the nitrate could get to about 35 ppm or so but other than that the water parameters are pretty solid,I believe my TDS is somewhere in the low 200's last time I checked

    You are correct, the bigger the WC, the more crucial it becomes to match the temps

    It wouldn't hurt to add more plants to help keep the trAte levels in check

    Now with the T Barbs I plan on it they really like to dart in and out among the plants more plants cant hurt they can only help the plants I have in there now Water sprite/rotella/crypts started out as one plant each not sure if you can see from the video but I now have 4 water sprites 3 crypts and 2 rotellas.The second rotella is behind the first in the back of the tank its small it was part of A pruning of the first same as the WS's the crypts just started popping up around the main crypt so I moved them over A little to better help them grow.
