Chris here... I thought to start a thread on this since my cycle has been so fragile... I did a 100% WC yesterday... water testing prior to change showed: PH 8.0, Ammonia 0-.25, Nitrite 0, Nitrate 5-10... I have been doing a 100% WCs every Tuesday since 9/27... My tank was over stock until Monday 10/17, when the 2 fatties were moved to the no tell motel for the for see able future to deal with their floatiness. So all that is in the tank are Hindenburg and Nautilus both are small babies. Their body length from nose to beginning of tails are 2 inches... Both fish are being their usual self... No behavioral changes... Tank size is 40g. Filters: 2 AC70s, running at 75% each, one DIY water skimmer. 1 air stone, 1- 24 inch bubble wand... Both filters wer rinsed back on the 10/11 WC... Added a heater yesterday to bring the tank up to 75 degrees... the tank without heat was typically 69-70 degrees.. Added a wonder shell this morning after today's water test... Today's water testing: PH 8.0, Ammonia .50, Nitrite 0, Nitrate 0 In response to the spike I added a complete dose of Pime. If there is something I'm missing, please advise... Thanks so much...
