It's still reading the same., probably because it's still higher than 80...
They're used to 80% PWC weekly... Can I do several 80% PWC daily and see what happens with numbers? I'm thinking since they are used to large water changes it won't shock them...?

I'm looking at top fins and the only one at partial mass is the new one... Rest are perky and alert, eager to "talk" to me...

That's a good sign. Just keep up the PWC over the next few days and see where it gets the readings.

Can I do a back water change to bring levels down faster? Do I wait an Hr between or as soon as I'm finished start it again?

Okay this is on my 20g... The Juvie's are more interested in playing with the water as I pour in than being scared.. They are the same ones that chase the waste up the siphon hose when I gravel vacc I'm thinking MOVE out of my way so you don't get sucked up.,, they flock to me and nibble my fingers and chase waste lol
