thanks will not change it again...companies trying to make money, absurd! lol
oh wait so should i not touch the tank for a week and see hows it go?
My guess is your tank is cycling because you changed out the media. You need to treat it as a cycling tank and test daily and change water accordingly.
If it's called tourist season why can't I shoot them?
Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.
ok thanks will do
the tank has only been set up for 2 weeks? Then it's definitely still cycling.
Also, how big are these fish and how many are there? A 30 gallon tank will not be suitable for anything but the youngest JDs. I do see that you said you're going to get a bigger tank, but in the mean time you're really going to have to stay on top of the water changes to keep the water clean.
300 gallon mega tank
: build in progress
75 gallon community tank
: tetras, danios, corys, platies, otos, pearl gouramis, bristlenose pleco, assassin snails, red cherry shrimp, bamboo shrimp
70 gallon growout tank: clown loaches, sailfin pleco
60 gallon goldfish tank: fancy goldfish
29 gallon frog tank / 10 gallon tadpole tank
: 1 leopard frog, 1 tadpole
10 gallon and 5.5 gallon betta tanks: 1 male betta each, sometimes snails
Everyone is spot on. Your tank was just beginning to cycle and grow the "good" bacteria in your filter media. And then you removed it and started the tank all over again so lost those first two weeks. You now began your cycle all over again the day you removed the old filter pads.
Do not allow those ammonia levels to get over .50 or you will kill all the fish.
You can not feed your fish nothing but blood worms. They need the nutrients that are in pellets and blood worms are supposed to be a "treat". If you continue to give them nothing but worms, they will not eat any foods anymore.
yeah i feed them a variety of foods, floating pellets, sinking shrimp pellets, blood worms , dried shrimp, baby guppies from our breeder tank. they are 1in and 1.5 in. i am fully aware the tank is too small for when they get big.i check the levels everyday...checked ammonia levels today and they are at .5...water change time?
Are you aware that due to the tank size, they might not ever get big? They might die due to a number of reasons (overstocked tank, fights over territory, etc.) or get stunted due to the too small tank.
