Ouch, I'm living in one of those too right now, and I can't imagine 3 tanks of any size in just the living room. I've got mine kind of spread out in different rooms to make it work. Also kind of planning on slowly turning an extra bedroom into a fish room, hehe...

If all goes as planned I will be picking up and acclimating 6 female Bettas. Going to try a sorority again, this time in a much bigger tank. Also picking up my white sand and getting it in my 10 gallon. If I can get a ride to the LFS.

Edit - I have a ride to the LFS! So, looks like a day of sand rinsing and fish acclimating is go! I hope the lady at the fish store got some pretty girls for me!

Edit - got everyone home, cups are floating in the tank. Not looking forward to rinsing sand, though...

Water Changes

Hello Aa..

Just water changes as usual. I change out half the tank water every week. Water is really cheap. I've found over the years, that by changing out that much water every week, I never have to test the water chemistry. I know it's always stable. I think the reason for the constant stability, is that in just 7 days, there's no time for wastes to build up in the water, before the next large change.

The large, frequent water changes mean I don't have to buy expensive testing equipment or high end filtration gear. The small filters I use, are just filtering water that's already clean. Saves me money for another tank or some more plants and possibly more Corydoras, I have six species. They really thrive in the pure water conditions.

Just an observation.
