Today I cleaned my Aqua Clear 70 for the first time. Boy, I guess gold fish are dirty! I can see how easy it would be to neglect cleaning it as we don't see it in the water. I also got rid of the charcoal bag that came with it - and replaced it with 3 Rite size filter media pads cut to approximate dimensions as the charcoal bag and added an extra bag of AC 70 bio-max media. Thanks Tithra
Tomorrow, I'm going to go to a LFS about an hour away to buy some Prazi Pro for my guys and look to see what price they have on their media for the Fluval as I will have to replace those charcoal bags too. For now, I'm content just doing the one and will do the Fluval in a week or so to avoid any mini cycles.
Today, I also bought some charcoal bags for the AC 70, in case I need them to remove the Prazi later on. (Not sure, but doesn't hurt to have it to remove meds anyway).
I also might get another fish since I'm doing Prazi and salt, might as well get it over with.
