the chromis aren't really big, but they aren't exactly tiny either. i plan on getting rid of most of them already like you said. i don't have a bare bottom, i have CC, but i plan on changing it out. i'll just have to disconnect everything on the filter and change it out this weekend. i'll test everything again, and let everybody here know. i'll write again tonight when i get home.
alright, i did the water change last night, and today i checked it when i got home from work. i tested the nitrates and the ammonia, and the results are as follows....
ammonia - .25
nitrates - 20ppm
i still haven't gotten into my filter to clean it up at all, but i still plan to when i get a chance. as long as i keep up with the PWC
every couple days for a week or so, should i be in good shape? and about the ammonia, can i just get some chemicals to drop it down, or is there a different way to take care of that?
