Anyways, here is my readings from my 10 gallon tank.
Temp: 79/80 degrees
My question is this: are the nitrates okay? This is my first tank and as the numbers show, it's been cycled.
Also, how often should I be doing a water change? I have the 2 mollys, 2 plattys, 2 ottos in there. Plus, about 8 fry who I am hoping to adopt out soon.
all looks good. nitrites are problem, but nitrates are much more mild form. 10 ppm is nothing to worry about and will be eliminated in you next water change. for that tank id do a weekly 25 percent change as it is fully stocked
