What filters are you running? What do you have in them?i have ceramic rings and substrate then the sponges but its depresing with the water like this what can i do????????
Are you using a good water conditioner during your water changes? I usually use Seachem products so in this case Prime. Are you servicing your filter each time you do a water change? If you are that could be a problem, your cannister should probably be serviced about once a month in my expierence. Or when the flow rate has been reduced.yes its cycled and i run an ehiem with ceramic rings substrate and the sponges also do 30-50 water change each sunday. local fish shop said im killing my bacteria by doing such big water changes but i think thats bull ?
Don't believe the fish shop guy. 50% waterchanges are fine since almost all bacteria colonize in the filter media.i use good water conditioner(tetra) and i only service filter about every 6 weeks i will get test kit in the morning. is that true what the bloke from the local fish shop said??
