Zac Posted November 4, 2021 Share Posted November 4, 2021 Hey y’all, I have a clown pleco that produces a lot of waste. Like probably more than all of the other 20 something fish I have in my 30 gallon (don’t worth it isn’t overstocked but it’s probably at about max capacity). Anyways, as I said, clown pleco produces a ton of waste. He hasn’t been producing this much waste until probably the past couple of weeks or so. He is healthy. This waste seems so cause my ammonia to fluctuate anywhere from 0-.25 I’d say with .25 being the worst. It’s usually about at .1 and then drops back down to 0 within a day or so. I know this isn’t normal. And the waste produces what I would assume to be either protein foam or ammonia foam around the perimeter of the tank but it doesn’t stink like protein foam. Obviously I can’t vacuum out the waste every day. Will my tank eventually get accustomed to this waste? Or should I consider doing a 5 gallon water change/gravel vacuum weekly?
