just curious, why are you doing such frequet changes?
Oh I havent been syphoning the gravel at all... I was going to tomorrow though because tomorrow is weekly maintenance day anyway...
I am doing them for two reasons; one to get the salt concentration down as much as possible without messing up the cycle (his treatment is done) and two because I had to pull a swallowed hair out of him the other day and he jumped out of my hand and landed on a hard surface, so I figure some extra clean water for a few days might prevent any infections
