I have a question about water changes on a tank this small.
I did basic water test ammonia, nitrate, nitrite, ph. I have 0, 80,0. I did a 75 percent water change nitrates are down to 20ish.
I know on this thread it's been said that small water changes daily are bad and only do it 50 percent once a week. That is advice I normally head with out question but in a rank this small and nitrates elevating at a more rapid pace. Would t it be less stressful to shrimp if I did a 10 percent daily change keep nitrates at a even level than have them in very high nitrates then shock them with a huge drop then cycle up again than a big drop?
