Here's in info for each tank:
55 gallon w/tetras: PH about 8.0, Ammonia 0 ppm, Nitrite, o ppm, Nitrate o ppm
50% water change last night and we change it either everyday or every other day depending upon ammonia levels.
29 gallon with pleco: PH 7.4, Ammonia 0.25 ppm, Nitrite 0 ppm, Nitrate 0 ppm.
50% water change last night
Photos of each attached.
I have both the pimafi and melafix. The fish store lady said not to change the water, but to treat the fish first for seven days. I called Seachem and they said I could add a few drops to the tank if I see ammonia. However, she said it will still show on the test kit as the liquid test won't read the prime. She said if the ammonia level rises, I should do a water change regardless of the medicine...
Finally, should I take out the mature media filter Tolak sent us from the 55 gallon? Seachem said the medicine may affect the beneficial bacteria in the tank.
Thank you for your advice!
