First water change
I just started a planted tank this past weekend. Specs are:
AquaClear 20 Filter
Dose with ADA Brighty K, ADA Green Brighty, Flourish Excel every morning
Eco Complete substrate
I've ordered a CO2ART Dual regulator kit and will set it up with a paintball tank when it comes.
I currently have Monte Carlo planted (didn't do DSM; LFS recommended early flood). This isn't doing too well as of now. It's still green but definitely yellowing in some areas. Is this normal? Possibly from lack of CO2 / being newly planted?
Anyway, my real question is when to do my first water change, and how much water should be changed? And from then on, what's a good rule of thumb for water changes? My tank isn't cycled yet - still cycling and I plan on adding a betta fish eventually.
