Ok so about twenty four hours ago I did a 50% PWC
with parameters at:
Ammonia < .25 (only a very slight greenish hue)
So now th tests are:
Nitrate ~ 20ppm
Tank is stocked with 2 gold gourami, and about 6 ghost shrimp. I know that is a bit small for the gourami, but I had to move them from the other tank as they were killing other fish.
As I stated before, this is a DIY Co2
setup so there is no way to adjust it, but I did put on a fluval Co2
20 diffuser, which I don't really like. When I had a regular air stone on it I think I was getting better results, as I could see the PH level come down to about 6.4 with the stone and it is not dropping at all with this new one.
Today I have kept all lights off In the room and tank to try and help against the algae.
Here is a pic.
