Yeah water changes of at least 25 to 50 percent every week is a must. If you do it less than weekly you'll have higher nitrates and ammonia which is bad for your fish if it's too high.

Your ph sounds good, but it depends on what fish you're raising. And i'm not sure about salinity.. Anybody know what salinity is good or bad??

1.026 is fine....but you really need to get yourself a test kit and measure ammonia, nitrite, and nitrates.

Yes, but idk if the dragon fish get along with the dojo and kuhli loach or not. But i think the dojo loach and kuhli loah would. Try getting a group of 3 and research them to see if they can live in ur water or not.

Bad idea unless you can find the right one for you..when i had one i took it out cause it only caused problems. It only seemed to collect waiste and it was disgusting. If you're gonna get one research for better ones.
