I got 2 fantails yesterday!
My ammonia and nitrite kept coming back as 0. I did one big water change and got the 2 babies.
Still been testing water twice a day and will continue to do this. Adding handful of matrix and purigen to filter also

There's really no need to do a water change unless you're ammonia or other levels are getting high enough to actually kill the beneficial bacteria (I believe that starts at ~4-5 ppm). Your ammonia is at 2 ppm tho - I recommend just testing and keeping it at that level, it shouldn't go up unless you add a bunch more which isn't necessary.
