So I have a grossly over stocked 75 gallon sa/ca
tank. It's all Male fish so there is rarely any fighting. 6 different type cichlids including 5 electric blue acara, one is almost 3 years old and pushing 5.5 ". Anyways.. this tank should be a disgusting mess, it's not.. no algae on the glass, the dw is covered in algae but that's a plus on this setup. I do a 70% wc
every 7-9 days and I only lose fish to old age. It's the pasture/farm tank. I clean the filter every 2 weeks and the nitrates stay in check. Everyone is active and healthy. I've had the wc
thing beaten into my head, when I started up the hobby it was the answer.. "when in doubt flush it out." "The solution to pollution is dilution" it has served me well over the years. Fish stick around a while these days..
