So I was doing my water changes and decided to test the water. I normally dont do it with my smaller tanks, just do two water changes a week. But I checked my one and it was at 20 ppm! And then I tested my NPT and it was at 10 ppm so I checked our water supply and it was 10 ppm. Its a new house different water then my other place. So what is an ok range for a betta? and is it to high for snails or ghost shrimp?
My bettas seem perfectly fine. But I am having trouble with some of my camboba (sp?) and Java moss in my large tank. but its doing fine in my 1.5 so not sure if it has anything to do with the water. I have no filter in either. My substrate is dirt from my previous yard. The lights on a little longer then it should be either 8-9am through - 9-11pm. But I don't want to get a timer and it has been this way for months with no problems. Just started when we moved.
I got my plants in april or may I believe. My wisteris is doing fine, its just the java moss and camboba (I can never get the spelling of it.) Any ideas why it is doing well in my non lighted 1.5g and not my lighted 5g?
