Gas'd my fish for the second time this morning...tips?
I woke up today to find my fish and shrimp at the to of the tank trying to get all the o2 they can. This is the second time I've had this issue in the past month and I was looking for some tips to avoid this in the future.
First time happened after adjusting the spray bar to try to increase the amount of co2 in the tank. The change meant minimal surface agitation which depleted the o2 overnight.
This time I'm not overly sure of the cause. I did remove some dead plant mass and did a 50% water change yesterday. As part of the removing I moved a few plants around and made room for some new plants that are arriving this week. I thought there was enough surface agitation but apparently not.
Pressureized co2: 16ish ppm
