I am new. While I had a 30g in a previous life, I never did anything but water changes, so this time I have started small.
I have a new mini bow 5g tank with a betta. I would like to add some more fish to the tank, but not sure when is a good time. (I am aware of the debates around adding fish to a betta tank; but the LFS has given me some suggestions that he thinks will do fine).
After 10 days, here are the readings:
I am going to do another water change this weekend.
Do I need to wait until the Ammonia and Nitrite levels are 0ppm? Should I be worried about the pH being above the optimal 7.5 (at least that is what the API test kit says is optimal).
I have no experience with doing this correctly, so any advice delivered in a constructive manner will be appreciated
