Stef Posted March 9 Share Posted March 9 Hi everyone. So I have four panda corys that have been in a 10 gal qt for a month. The qt is an older tank that has a mystery snail, an adolescent BN Pleco and a betta. I did not medicate the qt when the pandas went in from my lfs. Fast forward to today, all pandas are healthy, eating and swimming fine. While checking parameters of the qt and the display tank they’re going in, I’m getting some big differences in KH. For the qt strip (left), I’m getting 0 KH. On the liquid (left) I got to 3 drops to change from blue to yellow. The display tank is getting at least 80 ppm KH per strip on right and I got 6 drops to changes from blue to yellow for the liquid. The pH for both tanks are the same per liquid test at 7.2. And so are the nitrates at about 20 ppm per strips. So my question is when transferring fish to a tank with higher/better KH, is there the same acclimation protocol? I would do a drip method. I’m just wondering if it’s better to do small daily water changes first on the qt before transferring the pandas. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
