He so tiny! . I can see that his colors have come out more.

I was taking pics of my snails for my mom and king Neptune started flaring at my phone! So I took a picture of him. He's such a show off!

Nahh, he just doesn't like you, and he wants you off his property!

Who say's that you can't have more than one tank? Just get one more... just one...

He was probably still mad at me for putting him a bowl yesterday for a few hours until I could clean out all of the food that my 2 yr old dumped in.

No, he was mad for you not letting him eat all that food!

Did a test out of curiosity in Jitterbugs tank... It was cycled with between 7-40 tiny platy fry that were fed 3-4x's a day... Tank cycled 3 mths...

I did a 100% PWC yesterday and kept the filter...
Here are readings right now about 40 hrs later...

Ph 7.4
Ammo 0
Nitrite 0

And is this 5 for nitrate? Or...?
I used to have problems with high nitrates in past and this is my lowest reading ever, so just checking...

They need to redo nitrates colors. I can never tell them apart. Maybe it's 10? I would hold it so the white of the card is behind the test tube. I'm so glad the ammo and trites are 0!

They've been 0 ever since I started that tank.. If I remember I used seeded media from a massive Bioload tank..:. So never saw ammonia or nitrites at all.
Ya 10 is darker than 20... Odd! If I hold up to light it looks lighter.. But anyway... 10 is good for ME who's readings back in December in every tank were 0, 0, 160+! that was ONE BUSY WEEK... I saw buckets in my dreams...

I have 20-40ppm nitrates. It's in my tap water. I have put king Neptune Neptune in the 55 gallon. There's no other fish in there so he's playing.

I would say it's 10-20 nitrates, nothing serious. Just keep an eye on the nitrates, it's hard to control them in a small tank!

He's the only one in there and no food is around his jaws long enough to hit the gravel!

Will still probably do two 50% PWC a week... Simple to do ESPECIALLY inches from the kitchen sink!
