I had my first aquarium intervention.


Recommended Posts

They continued to get cloudy water and dead fish after water changes.  It turns out they were thoroughly cleaning their biological media.  We had a long talk about the nitrogen cycle, I helped them with various plants, and, because they have the same water source as me, walked them through exactly how I treat my water and do water changes.

Hopefully, they will end up with a thriving tank. 🙂

Oh, and I showed them Cory's Python siphon trick... 🙂

Good for you. Having someone with the same water and some experience show you what to do is a gift. I hope they will accept the knowledge and use it, and pass it on in turn. I am happy every time I see my adult child's plant and algae-filled tank--her fish enjoy direct sunlight and she values the natural vibes over having an Instagrammable tank ❤️
