Guppy got a 100% water change yesterday.
New filter cartage (supposed to replace it every 2 weeks according to filter directions, I am going to do it ones a month since the flow is baffled so much).
I also made a new nicer looking baffle. I found that using a black foam instead of the white one works nicely. then I tied some fake plants to the rubber bands that are holding the baffle in to mask it.
It looks great, i will put some new photos in soon.
The black foam also blends better with my black gravel on the outflow tube as well.
Actually, I should post a whole thread on my fitler modifications so others who have vail tails can have more options. I am feeling pretty brilliant about it. Ha ha!
Anyway, i also did a thorough gravel vac. and washed the walls and everything in his tank.
I floated him in the old water and adjusted him to the new tank water over 2 hours. Today he is doing fine. So he is back in 100% of the High PH water with new conditioner (Seachem Prime) to filter out the ammonia.
I did start adding the new water half at a time, two times a day, three days ago to help him adjust slowly.
Later today, I am going to give the frozen brine shrimp another try.
