Hello my new fish family
. I will post a introduction after this but i feel this is way more important.
I have a 36 bow tank for over a week now. I committed the worst crimes i could possibly do. I got a tank i filled it with all live plants and within 5 days have 18 fish in it
....well i have lost about 4 i have tested the water number of times and each times levels are spot on.. i today bought a new tester kit(big boy one) and am going to revamp my crap out of tank filter with a added sponge and some bio balls because after joining here and some you tube videos i know i need it.I pulled the cartridge out and it was covered....good...but bad. see with the filter if it restricts the flow it just dumps into the front portion without going through anything. So.......with this said, and a wife who has in one week named our new family members, what do i do.???? water change? leave it alone? mod the filter leave the old media from old cartridge and add my extras......HELP!!!!! i found this a week to late. Ill post pictures as well. I am ocd, so even though im new at this and not sure of all the plants and fish i have. i plan on being able to add insight soon enough here lol. Thank you guys and girls and i look forward to this awesome journey with you!
