Herefishie Posted April 26 Share Posted April 26 As a relative newbie, I've been watching YouTube videos for a couple of months pretty much nonstop. I ordered a TDS meter and I was shocked at how high my tanks are. I have two fish tanks and one shrimp tank. They are all hovering around 850 (tap water). I have never lost a fish since I started keeping them in September 2022. Still, I have to assume they are stressed from these elevated numbers. I'm going to start doing some 20% water changes with RO water in hopes of bringing it down. I guess ignorance was bliss? I feel bad that they might be suffering and I didn't even know it. I have an API kit and I check all of my parameters but the TDS was one I never even thought of until YouTube mentioned it. I'm sorry fish, mystery snail and shrimp! 😢 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
