Weekly test for Ammonia, Nitrites, Nitrates, pH.

Why do I love fish? Because every time I stare into the little world I have created for them, every problem I have just floats away....

We test for pH, ammonia, nitrite and nitrate. We have thermometers that give us instant temp (also have alarms to indicate fluctation of more than 3 degrees in either direction).

We generally do water changes weekly, so that's how often we test unless there's an evident problem with a tank.

75: blood parrots, featherfin cat, emperor tetras, turquoise rainbowfish, BN plecos, japanese trapdoor; 46: WCMM, gold inca snails, ghost, bamboo & amano shrimp, kuhli loaches, rummynose & ember tetras, endlers, platies, flame gourami, guppies; 16: pygmy, peppered, loxozonus corys, otos, assassins, RCS ... ~ Research PRIOR to purchase.... ~
