Guys, thank you for the advice. It’s really appreciated.
I have already added seachem tabs under the substrate which I do believe has helped very minimally, but helped.
So my plan is
1 Remove nitrate pad (heard a lot of negative opinions on these not just from here)
Any opinions on how to lay the media out in the Juwel ecoofkow
2 order TNC complete
3 Order more plants
4 Change co2 injection timing to 12pm - 6pm (lights remain on 4pm - 10pm)?
5 give it a clean and prepare etc
What do you mean by high bio load with current stock level? Too many fish?
fish in the tank are
9 neon tetras
5 HarleyQuinn rasbora’s
5 pepper Cory
Problem with removing the poly pad is what sponge media do I use in replacement? As my poly pads look like this in 2 days. And it looks like it’s throwing debris out where it’s suppose to go in. How do I upload a video?
Someone on the page before suggested removing the poly pad.
I haven’t but I have removed the nitrate sponge. Past week everything has seemed better. Got home today and the tank is worse than ever. Don’t know what to do
I’ve added 4 more large plants and floating plants.
Dosing a complete tropica fert
Changed co2 12-6pm left lights 4-10pm
Removed nitrate sponge
It’s changed it’s toll now, it’s not on the ornaments anymore, only the background and leaves. It’s slightly better but slightly worse lol
You're right to be cautious. It's best to make any changes to your CO2 in small increments, and only on a day when you will be able to check on your fish every few minutes thoughout the day.Ive left it on too long before and all my fish were half dead. I’m scared to do that again.
Haven't read the thread save the last few replies... however this looks like a standard Juwel in tank filter. And thats the top 'cage' of pads. If so, then change the order, as your coarse sponges will be doing nothing and that poly pad will be doing everything.Problem with removing the poly pad is what sponge media do I use in replacement?
