Thanks, JKfish. I'll probably up the water changes to every few days. You were the only one who told me that they excrete ammonia when they breathe. I honestly thought that it only happened when they pooped which I know isn't that often. I'm also working on the heater, like I said I'm low on money so I can't go out and buy one right now.
As far as JKfish being the only one telling you they "excrete ammonia" maybe that's true. JK did say those words exactly. But we weren't really saying anything different or kidding you when we said ammonia was breathed in.
And while it may not seem often that they poop, it still builds up really fast... Why poop is waste, no? :D'
And I remember you saying that about the heater. As long as you aim to get that sometime soon when you can. :D
But if I may,
if more than one person... more than three... four... add a couple more if you want. If a lot of members are saying the same thing ("do water changes" seemed to be popular), it kinda really means we're telling the truth, we know what we're talking about... something to that effect.
It's better to not argue that we don't have proof when you don't have a way to prove your side of the story either. D:
We just want the best for our fishies. And we want to help others' fishies too.
And as far as standard things like water temp and changes go... (and food, lol, don't forget the food) ... we know what's not enough and too much.
