Hi everyone. I am new to this site and new to saltwater aquariums. I am looking forward to learning from all of you. I have a 24 gallon biocube. I have had it cycling with live rock and live sand for two months. All levels were perfect so yesterday I added one clown, one cleaner shrimp and 3 hermit crabs. My amonia level is now at 0.25ppm. Should I being doing a water change? I don't want to stress my new additions any more but also want to do it right. Any information would be much appreciated
Thank you so much. I have received a reply about doing a water change. I only added one fish yesterday but my amonia level went up to 0.25. I am afraid to do too much of a change since the fish is so new to the tank. How much of a water change do you recommend
You should do a water change now and don't worry about the fishy it will be fine. If you are very worried about the fishy I would recommend doing at least 10% water change now and 30% on your regular cleaning day.
