I got me some guppies and some mollies today, not knowing how big mollies would get, or thier rate of poop!
They are right now in a 14 gallon, quarantine, bare bottomed tank.
I will be upgrading them to a 24 gallon, after i make sure their all healthy, and i get to clean out the 24 gallon.
My plan, for the time being, is to vac out any poop on the bottom of the tank[multiple times a day], in addition to the filters, and to a 20%w/c daily.
Im home all day, so its really not alot of work, since i just stick a hose in there, and let it flow til the water level drops to where it cant suck up anymore. Then i refill.
Should i do more of a w/c? like 30% or 40%?
I will be feeding them very little, three times a day, so i can make sure there isnt any left over food in the tank.
I do have ammonia remover...should i add a bit of that to the tank every day or every two days, just to make sure there arent ammonia spikes?
Just want to make sure im doing this right, and if anyone has any advise that would be great!
Im not thinking of returning the mollies just yet, I want to see how this all pans out before i return any fish. I absolutely adore their little faces!
