10g: 40 ppm

20g: 40 ppm

29g: 40 ppm

WHOO HOO!!!! Down from 160 the other day!

Im pretty proud of myself considering my tap has 20 ppm. I've never done so many water changes! Hoping tomorrow I can bridge to 20.. I'd be thrilled!

Thank you for all your help Mumma of 2

Guess it's time to look up drip acclimation for next time...
Thank God I have only lost ONE fish since I crammed 10 of various types into the 10g I got from Petsmart the same night I got the fish...
(that was 3 tanks ago!)

From those fish that night, after various rehomings I only have 2 of the original..
My male Dalmatian Molly Cesar who is about to come out of QT from the Camallanus worms and my male Platy...

20g-- 40 ppm

10g-- 20 ppm
YAY!!! (this is only tank that had that extra water change the first night.. Others waited till next day)

I tested out of tap today out of curiosity cause the chlorine smell wafted out of the bucket way more than usual and it was at 40 ppm too! It was 20 the other day!
Did they treat the water at the plant today or what?? Gross..
I'm testing 29 g in a bit...
