" really think that a large part of the problem is that you are STILL looking for chemical fixes when water changes will fix the issue."
-- No, i never was looking for a "chemical fix" just somthing to get me by untill i could get things right again. - i was looking to chemicals like we would use a bandaid. I realize that bacteria addition, and water changes untill the cycle is balanced again is the answer. i have a problem getting more than 10 gal
a day at this point. since i only use ro
water and have to purchace it, the store i am getting it from is out of bottles and i have two 5 gal
-- The ammo lock was to prevent the amonia from dammaging the fish(bandaid) untill the water changes and bacteria was able to balance the tank -- what is wrong with this idea ? please tell me !
Ok 2 gal
not enough, the best i can muster is 10 gal
a day. i will attempt to increse the voulume i can support.
I am just trying to get through this with as little stress to the fish and my nerves i can.
-- TCHFish thanks for the info on th NitroMax i will use this.
i am also looking into a sump.
Thanks everyone for all your help.
I will let you all know how this saga ends.
