maryanngmeyers Posted February 4, 2021 Share Posted February 4, 2021 (edited) Hi 🐬 My tanks is a month new and i was feeding 2x a day --2 pellets each and then the smaller ones were not getting the food so fed 3 pellets each 2x day which i noticed the ammonia went up to .225 so I did a 20/25 per cent water change --stopped feeding for a day and went back to 1x a day 3/4 pellets each made a difference tank normal again. Water change was after 4 weeks. I notice when i feed at once i put 2 pinches break down most pellets first time keeps larger fish busy and then put in a small pinch by the small fish -- they can get easier since larger fish are busy eating They eat so fast 30 seconds maybe less....do i need more food at once? What do fish look like when they are under fed During this time of overfeeding had a brown algae bloom which appears to be ok now--cleaned glass and some in tank but ok..was thinking of getting a bristlenose for algae but heard they poop alot and did not know if that would make more tank maintence,,,,working on an eco system...i test every week or is there another choice for algae eater in the tank going to get nerite snails( maybe dont need the pleco??) today and trumphet to keep small gravel nice goal water change every other month--not sure if will work--- Thanks!
