water change

Well I finally broke down and did a water change.

You all think I'll hurt or crash my tank by the water change?

maintain Fw and marine system with a strong emphasis on balanced, stabilized system that as much as possible are self substaning.

have maintained FW systems for up to 9 years with descendants from original fish and marine aquariums for up to 8 years.

With no water changes, untreated tap water, inexpensive lighting by first starting the tank with live plants (FW) or macro algae( marine)

No, but your source water is probably much different than your tank water at this point so a huge change could make your fish wonder what the heck is up with BBob.

Any particular reason that you chose to do one now?

Total years fish keeping experience: 7 months, can't start counting in years for a while yet.

The shotgun approach to a planted tank with an LED fixture

Small scale nitrogen cycle with a jar, water and fish food; no substrate, filter etc
