Monthly Update – 3/10/16

By: Kevin | March 10, 2016

Depressing changes since last update:

  1. Tank die off, 17 Cardinals down to 4. Pelco died.
  2. pH has been creeping >7.5 so I’ve added some chemicals to bring it down. I also added a piece of drift wood. The day after adding the wood my pelco was dead so I took it back out.
  3. 15% water change, used tap water conditioner and Proper pH 6.5
  4. New filter
  5. New carbon
  6. Got a new Pelco.

Everything is near zero except Phosphates, which are through the roof! Which explains why the tank has had an algae bloom.
