A few more details :
Ammonia - .25 ppm
(it was at 2.0 ppm
this morning, so I did a 30% water change)
Nitrite - 0 ppm
Nitrate - 0 ppm
(but it's starting to head towards the more orange tinge of 5.0 ppm
PH - 7.8
I test my water twice a day at least (more often if I notice any strange behaviour) and do water changes as needed to keep the ammonia levels down. Sometimes that means every day, sometimes every other day and each time I change between 10% and 30%. I feed a mixture of frozen blood worms and frozen brine shrimp and whenever I do feelings, I turn the filter and the air stone way down to reduce flow and create less waste.
Anything else you want to know, just ask!
