did you do a gravel cleaning and clean your filter the same time of the water change?i have a 20g tank with shrimps in there ... for like 6 months already.
I decided to take out 30% of water and put in RO water (the tank been around for a while already .. i dont think anything would happen if I did too much water change)
The next day,, the tank water became white cloudy ... the shrimps are doing OK just the water is cloudy white .. I think I upset the bateria balance of the tank .. but so far the shrimps r doing fine .. so .. I told myself never do more than 10-20% change of water from now on .. even with my other tanks as well ... It had been like 4 days already and the water still cloudy .. I mean not as cloudy as before but still cloudy ...
I learned my lesson
RO is reverse osmosis water.Attention: JOHNNY313
Ok, all these abbreviations are confusing....... I don't know what RO or DI Water is if someone could help me out with that. I planned to take out 1 or 2 gallons every few days & just replace with Tap Water, will that work?
NO SHRIMP YET. JOHNNY313 You are sending me 5, remember? I paid you for them yesterday. Did you ship them yet? Wondering when to expect them.......
Here's what the tank will be:
10 gallon tank with some plants, a sponge filter & some substrate. Pretty simple.
What is this using Distilled water? First I heard of having to use that...... Thanks for the help Guys n Gals.
