Sweetpickles Posted July 14, 2021 Share Posted July 14, 2021 I am sure this issue has been addressed before and I am sorry to bring it up. I have had this 20 gal tank up and cycled since april. All has been well til a month ago. I have 6 rasboras, 5 whiteclouds, 1 panda cory, 2 panda garra, a mystery snail, 2 nerites and one surprise guppy that hitched a ride as a fry. Also about a dz cherry shrimp and an occasional explosion of rams horn and bladder snails. We try to do a water change at least every other week but lately every week due to nitrite. I have used almost all my prime. My acrylic is now cycled so i put a couple handfuls of gravel from it into the 20. It helped for a couple days but now its back to .225. Everyone in the tank seems fine and happy. Eating well and very active. I tested big tank to be sure nothing was faulty. Tank runs about 72-74° I have a medium and a small sponge filter. Do I need more plants? I have not had an ammonia spike. I have been testing regularly. Water change before last we did well over 50% and I did a flush type change. That seemed to help for a day or so. Maybe the snails? sorry this is lengthy. I appreciate your insight! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
