Dead spaces in tank


Recommended Posts

Hey all I know it's been forever but raising my grand babies turns out to be quite the challenge in my old age lol, 

But I do have a question and need some guidance in the fact I am noticing some poops sitting on the bottom of the tank in between cleaning days, and was wondering what to use to boost movement on the bottom of the tank, any suggestions appreciated :)

Also was wondering if pH changes will affect goldfish coloring at all, my pH rises after time, and if I lag on the w/c I'm seeing some orange/gold coloring on one of my Moor's (I have 3 in a 55 gallon) 

Thanks for any input :)

I have grandbabies too! Love 'em to pieces but after a fun visit with them I OFTEN (more likely EVERY TIME) take a nap!!  They wear me out!

I think people our age that have babies themselves are nuts!!!  LOL!!! I'd be exhausted ALL THE TIME!!  LOL!!!!!!!

How big is your tank? I use a splitter on my sponge filter so it goes in two directions to help keep the floor clean :)

It could but more likely it would be the food :)

Ok powered was the thing I couldn't remember, how are they used and do you have any recommendations? 

My tank is a 55 gallon with 3 black Moor's and a bristle mouth pleco with 2 aqua clear 70's

2/weekly w/c around 75%

PH 7,8-8,0 :(

I consider a dead spot in the tank a real gift.  It doesn't take 5 minutes to siphon the poop from a small area on the bottom of the tank.  It takes much longer to clean it from the filter.

If I add a sponge filter will it bump my cycle? Maybe just a air stone will help?

Just a quick update, I added a huge disk air stone today while I was doing my w/c and hopefully it will help move the poops off the floor... Here's a snap of my w/c Chem tests the first vile is tap ph

Adding a filter will only cause a bump if you also removed your old filter.
