Lauren A Posted June 22, 2022 Share Posted June 22, 2022 (edited) Hi, I have only kept betta fish through my fish keeping journey until now and I’m a little nervous because today is my first official water change and cleaning after introducing Green Neon Rasbora to their 3/4 planted tank. Besides 3 horned nerites and a tag along pond snail, I have 10 of these beautiful micro fish. My fear is inadvertently sucking one up. The tank is less than 1/4 course sand substrate and the rest consists of aqua soil with rooted plants. Also 2 pieces of good sized bogwood, many rhizome plants on the wood and multiple stones/rocks. So, I’ve got some tight spots to work around and under. I’ve cleaned the tank several times since setting up a few months ago but only with snails. Anyway, sorry to ramble on. Does anyone have any recommendations or tips doing this - besides being very careful. I use Pythons basic siphons. If I placed nylon over it I’m worried I won’t suck up the poop or uneaten food. I wish I could distract them somehow. Thanj you for your help. With a simple google search, I didn’t find much help so I wanted to reach out. attaching a pic of their dirty tank. Just so you can see what I’m working with! thanks in advance, Lauren Edited June 22, 2022 by Lauren A 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
