signs you haven't done water changes recently....

I just purchased a baby angel fish and knowing my 29g wasn't up to snuff I wanted to do a water change.... but I couldn't find my hosing!

What are some signs that you have slacked on your water changes?

I was hoping for this to be a fun post

A sign or me would be higher levels of nitrates then usual and possibly fish waste clustered up in dead spots in my tank.

For sure!

Or when fish start carpet surfing....

Another sign sometimes the coloring of the fish may be off. Stress coloring either too dark or too light
