Aquasoil question


Hello,

Well I used ADA Aquasoil new amazonia for the first time and the tank is super cloudy.

What are the recommended water changes I should do?

Daily? bi weekly ? Weekly? And how much %?

Thanks for looking!

The first week 50% every day, the second week every other day the third week every 3 days and from the 4th one very week. This is due to the ammonia not the cloudiness

How did you fill it? My aquasoil tanks are clear as can be after filling. The trick is not to disturb it. Try filling with some wax paper or plastic wrap next time. Always does the trick for me.

Thanks for the tips guys.

Filling was probably where it went wrong. I disturbed a huge patch in the front lol.
