Expert Village? WOW
Just looking around on youtube for videos on some cool fish and random stuff. Stumbled across this, and oh my how wrong it is.
Change out your filter pads once a month, wash your filter. And then the comments?! Oh god. I hope not many people follow this.
Monthly water changes to, real experts

Yep, that's how we used to do things before we knew how to do them the right way. Its' basically what most pet stores still recommend to this day. Now I feel bad for all the fish that were unnecessarily exposed to ammonia and nitrates on a monthly basis. No wonder fish deaths and diseases were more common.

Yeah I have seen some of their stuff before too, they have all sorts of Expert this and Expert that. Most of it is total crap.
Ive been doing monthly water changes now for many years.If its a heavily planted tank,no problem.I didnt watch the whole vid so I assume he is reffering to a std unplanted tank .
Unplanted tank, about 10 gallons, looks like goldfish in the tank couldnt tell, and he wanted to clean the filter and throw out the pad....ouch lol
Yea "expert" village is a complete joke, its not even worth picking some of the videos apart, theres just no good info in the majority of them.
There is one guy on there that is okay as far as advice, of course he has very few videos compared to the others, or did last time i checked.
A bit more investigating has shown that "expertvillage" is basicly a place for how too videos on youtube. Unfortunately there is no process in place to weed out bad info. Your stuck with the good and the bad . Funny that even the noobs here could post more informative videos than what I saw .
Never under estimate the power of stupid people in large numbers.
If everyone is thinking alike , then no one is thinking.
