I do have a bubbler in there to maintain circulation. I have been doing this for a year and I am stumped. I change the water 50% once a week, clean the filter every other day, however been having problems getting the ph right. My test kit seems to be in the middle reading in regards the ph.(sorry for the long post)..I want my fish to breed again and it has been a few months since I had any fry. Any help would be very appreciated..thanks again to all my fish loving friends!!
having that many without mass air media can result in tebuculosis which is caused by overstocking and result in drowning them if they are at the surface swimming @ a 90 degree angle they are trying to get the last bit of air because they are suffocating i have over 30+ small speices fish in a five gallon but only beause i have both gigantic air circulation about a 3 triilon bubble an hour pls atmoshereic oxygen and i made the air pump with the lower half of a fully submursible wisp filter only part is at surface to pump the air into bubbles so my oxygen is good to go and my fish are happy and healthy because of air media othoer wise tey would die from the reason i mentioned
