Wolfden Posted November 3, 2022 Share Posted November 3, 2022 Hi all I am mainly a lurker, but have been around for quite a while. I have 2 fish tanks one is a 5 gallon and the other a 10 gallon. My 5 gallon I love. Fully planted and haven't had to a water change in at least 6 months. Just top off with fresh water when needed. My ten gallon however has become the bane of my existence. I have had the tank for about 5 years and no matter what I do I can't seem to get it to look nice. Water parameters are 0 ammonia, nitrite 0, Nitrate 50 ( no mater what I do) GH 150, KH 120-180, PH 7.8-8. I am running an oversized sponge filter along with a Top fin Pro 30 HOB. There are some Java ferns that are failing and to Anubis also have some bamboo. 3 that are doing good and one that seems to be turning yellow. I have two Marineland LED aquarium light bars on it cause I felt one wasn't producing enough light. Fish in the tank are four zebra Danio's, one mystery snail, Clown Pleco, 3 kuhli loaches and a bunch of Malaysian Trumpet snails. It gets weekly water changes as well cause that is the only way I can keep the nitrates at bay. No ferts at the moment since it just makes the nitrates sky rocket, but would usually be using easy green. First tank is my amazing 5 gallon and the second is my 10 Gallon (Not happy with Tank) I would love to hear anyone's ideas, suggestions, tips on how I can make this tank thrive. I would like to have it fully planted as well. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
