Which im told the nitrates are okay, but its the nitrites ive gotta worry about. For the ammonia I have the liquid API test, which was high, but then got it to 0 finally. I guess I am kinda worried about doing larger water changes, I always assumed it would stress the fish. When I had aquariums in the past, I never tested the water( because more or less I was unaware it was important) and had absolutly no problems! Back then i only did a water change once a month. Now that Im doing it by the book, Im noticing things I didnt before. One being, more water changes are better!
Listen to Hallyx and everything will turn out right.
