Water Changes and No WC

Changed half the tank water in one of the 55s. Have several tanks. Do water changes on a couple of tanks during the week and the others on the weekends. The no water change tank is working well. Tested the tank water in it and no ammonia or nitrite. Nitrates are roughly 10 ppm. The "Ag" plants are really working to remove most of the nitrogen in the water. Fish are fine in the pure water conditions created by the plants.

What Did You do With Your Tank Today?

I'm over stocked and needed more filtration. So I added an additional Aqueon 50 to my 26g tank. Now I have a 30 and a 50. It's quite a nice flow keeping the first awake.
Also got a CoralLife 24 with a 10000 24w and a 6700 blue light Actinic 24w. This goes along with my Aqueon 20" Triple LED. So my plants are living it too. LFS. Sold me 4 more Neons but gave me six cause they know they die easily. Not sure if that is nice or just due diligence.

What I Did Last Night

Another water change. At least 50 percent weekly. Tried 50 percent every two weeks for a short time. But, the tank water looks so clear with weekly changes than to wait the few more days.

The large, frequent water changes really maintain stable water conditions for the fish and high mineral levels for the plants.

Still use the bucket method. So, there's an exercise benefit for me.

50% PWC on the 29 last night at 11:30, had mom and dad help so it would go faster it probably took around 10-15 minutes. Might get some loaches or something to eat the MTS because they're all over my dad has removed over 100.

(Anyone want some MTS?)

Tank 1: replanted and moved all of my plants, did a 25 percent water change, added 3 cherry shrimp and 1 Mexican dwarf crayfish.

Tank 2: 20 percent water change, trimmed some plants, added liquid ferts, and added flourish excel.

A very productive day!
