I have 10 gallon tank up and running for the last 3 months with 6 small/medium sized Angels. I noticed that I have 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites and about 20 - 30 ppm of nitrate every 2-3 days. I don't really want to get into a routine of changing water every 2-3 days ( 25% change), but I suspect i have good bacteria taking care of the ammonia and the nitrites.
I feed the angels every other day and suspect that perhaps a 10 gallon may be too small to accomodate the ammonia output from the fish. Is this a correct assessment?
Any feedback would be appreciated.
if fresh water than you would need 5.5 times the tank size you have, you are most likely not seeing amonia or nitritres because your tank is cycled, however you need to either get a bigger tank or get rid of the fish. angel fish get 6 inches in length and even more in height
