Two days ago I did a 50 percent water change on my 10 gallon divided tank that has 7 live plants and is currently cycling. Rico jumped the divider while I was at work and shredded Norman's fins pretty bad. Rico has a split fin from flaring I assume. My daughter caught this early and separated them and when I got home I added some stress coat. The ammonia this morning is <.25, Nitrite 0, Nitrate 0
So I have a couple of questions.
1. Should I do another 50 percent change today and every other day until their fins heal? Or should I just do my two 50 percent per week as long as the ammonia is below .25?
2. Can I use Stress Coat and Prime at the same time if I do the water change today?
3. When you have a divided tank, do you try and take water from both sides, or does it matter. It is divided with a DIY mesh(that was pretty simple and fun to make).
Thanks for the help. They are acting normally, eating great(added Omega One yesterday in addition to their NLS, they LOVE the Omega One).
