| || | Water change after cycle?
Hey there, I have a minor question:
I have been cycling a 20 gallon freshwater aquarium. Ammonia and nitrite are finally at 0ppm, nitrates are reading 5ppm. I currently have a bunch of brown algae on gravel, decorations and glass in my tank and was wondering when I could begin syphoning and/or doing water changes? I am afraid of cleaning up too quickly and setting myself back seeing as I recently got through both the ammonia and nitrite spikes.
How would you approach this?
