Everything ok, then No2 explosion !
Hello, as title says, I just did a no2 and no3 test, usually my parameters were 0,02 no2 and 8-10 no3.
The tank was going pretty good, I just did a water test and saw that no2 were 2 mg/l and no3 60 mg/l.
2 weeks ago I did the one-two punch method to battle my BBA explosion, but I did it without my biomedia in filter, so it was ok.
Everything was good for 2 weeks but I maybe lost 2 otocinclus because I can't find them, maybe they are the cause to this no2-no3 spike?
I did a 40% waterchange and parameters went down just a little bit, I don't have any more ro water to use, tomorrow I will do another 40 maybe 50 % waterchange , I will also add some more biomedia to my filter (hydor prime 20) , I was thinking about sera siporax, is it good? Or there are better biomedia?
I was thinking also to use some sera toxivec, but I think that water changes will be enough to decrease my parameters, what you think ?
Anyway can 2 little otocinclus really f**k up parameters of a 25 gal tank?
Any advice on what I did and what I am gonna do tomorrow ? thanks a lot !
Btw fishes are ok atm, I can't believe it, I hope they make it untill tomorrow .
