Before the water change they were both to high so I took out 45% of the water and am just curious. Please someone help me out here.
is this a new tank? Your true ph can be gathered 24 hrs after wc
, you should test for amm before wc
, say it's at 1 ppm
you should do a 50% change to get it down to .5 and than another 30% to get it to safe levels. These oscars grow quick and make a huge mess, you should really take them back.. What do you have for filtration? Lfs
