Well than, I was not aware of that. I will def change this and do water changes for often, every other week 25% should work for me. I want to keep the environment nice for the fish and want to build and sustain a tank, not keep adding new fish and losing fish.
25% every other week might work for you, but it won't work for the fish. They count on you to maintain their whole world. They cannot escape the aquarium, and that makes you the god of their universe. Please do what's best for them, which is a 50% water change every week with gravel vac. You'll be rewarded with beautiful, healthy, happy fish!
