Gideyon Posted April 19, 2021 Share Posted April 19, 2021 Even though my parameters were all good, and nitrates were below 10ppm, I did a 50% water change in hopes of helping my betta out. He's been not eating, and I'm curious about his swim bladder due to visual and swimming peculiarities. I typically don't do this, but I removed all the decorations before the gravel vac. That obviously stirred up the substrate and all the debris. And there came this very strong smell. I've heard this type of smell describing a tank with high ammonia. But I was measuring 0ppm. Was this just the smell of shaken up waste? Did I give my tank an ammonia spike by doing that? Was this the smell of mulm from my possibly decaying IAL? Anything I should do or look out for?
