Does anyone have any idea how many chem stars to add to a 55Gall freshwater goldfish tank? i bought a bag of 20 stars and it does'nt say how to use them other than to place them in last compartment of filter. But how many?
i have a single 5 inch fantail goldfish. And a new small one waiting in the wings, in a quarantine tank- to make sure he's not diseased.
I use three HOB
filters, each one is full of other media such as zeolite, crushed coral, bio rings, activated carbon (ammocarb) and now the stars. I only placed 3 in each filter.
Running out of room in my HOB
filters. Packed any more and the flow will be restricted.
about a month ago or more i had a tank crash as we went away for several months. Been trying to re-establish nitrogen cycle. what a nitemare. I had a fish sitter and she did fine, but something went wrong after we got back.....my ammo readings were up to 8.0 for a long time. Then i finally got a new Marineland bio wheel 200 and now my water parameters are getting to where they should be; the old filters were hand me downs, and faulty.
