Sorry, very new to this..
2 gallon tank, no filter. I was planning on doing a 50% change once/week, and a 100% change once/week. ( yes?)
So for a 50% water change, leave fish in, take out 1/2 water. Then just add clean water (with water conditioner)....so just pour it in slowly? Should I use warmer water out of the tap, check the temp, and then pour in 76 degree water? Also, someone mentioned siphoning to not wreck a bubble nest, is this necessary, and if so, what do I do with it during the %100 change?
Then the %100 change...so i catch fishy and let him swim in his own water while I clean tank. Same question as above, do I add warm, conditioned water, then reintroduce him to his tank slowly....like submerging the cup? Am I supposed to add the old water that's in his cup back to the tank?
My biggest question is that we were told to let his water sit over night. The info from the tank says to wait 24hours when setting up tank before adding fish...so am I supposed to do that every time?
Any other tips appreciated!!!
