stupid me. I know better than to not supply every lil detail :P
setup has been running since Feb of this year
filtered tank. I usually vacuum once a month to pick up all his poos
sand substrate about 1-1.5" deep
Spike is the only stock in there. I've been wanting to get some live plants, hopefully here real soon.
I used those testing stripes you get from petsMart
filter media is a sponge/I usually just swish it around in old tank water during weekly water changes.
water changes are usually 30-40% every week and 50% with vacuum monthly.
water source......meaning where his water comes from?
