Changing sponge filter
I hope this helps...., About once a month, I take about a gallon of water out of my aquarium, and put it in a 5 gal bucket and very gently clean my sponge filter. This way I hopefully wont lose to much of the good bacteria. Then I add a product called Nutrafin Cycle, to the tank. I also add N C to the tank when I clean the tank. Some will argue that N C is not as good as another products that do the very same thing. Really?
It's up to you to decide what is best for your own situation. Good luck.
I have a 36 gallon freshwater tank very tall. I have 4 Rainbow Tetra, 4 Black Néon Tetra, 3 Albino Aeneus Cory Cat (which just laid eggs) 1 Fiddler Crab,...yes that's right in fresh water.... 1 Female Betta.
