Yeah, I realized this. Originally, I didn't want to use anything from my 20 gallon, because I have snails in the 20g and I didn't want to transfer them into the 75g. Didn't matter anyway because with all of the plants in the new tank, the snails appeared and they seem to have withstood the daily bombing of ammonia. The plants are thriving though! I've never had luck with live plants, so this is a first. Now I'm thinking of converting the 20g into a high tech planted tank...just what my husband wants to hear
One more quick question. Being that nitrates are so low (ranging from 0 to 5 ppm
), should I still do a water change? I've read that one should do a water change at the ending of fishless cycling to lower the nitrates, but they're very low already. Thank you again for the advice. Take care!
