I went to my LFS
today to buy some random stuff and got talking with an associate there about water changes. Long story short I ended up making a DIY Python, which works great btw
Anyhow, I want to mke sure I don't harm my fish doing wcs this way. I know that temp matching is key and to keep watching for temp changes during refill. I am not sure on best way to dechlorinate the water that's going in the tank.
I am guessing since I will be doing 50% wcs of the full 60g volume of water it would probably be a good idea to dose prime for like 50g worth? even though I am only removing 30g. Would this be good?
Should I pour all the prime in BEFORE i start refilling? or half first and half midway?
How long once prime hits the water does it keep working to remove toxins?!
Any and all advice much appreciated.
Also since I am on the topic, how much of a temp change is safe while doing a wc
? 1-2 degrees? 3-5? more? or none?
using the buckets the last 4 months I have normally 1-2 degree change.
