I've been testing my tank daily with my API ammonia kit, I'm probably going to get a Nitrate kit this weekend since I am seeing my Ammonia spike now, but is it really necessary to test daily? I did a 50% change the day before yesterday, and a 20% change today for vacuuming the floor of the tank.
Before my 20% change it was about .25 and after it was pretty close to the yellow for 0 on the card.
I'm going to be gone Friday Night through Sunday Morning, should I be worried about any needed water changes over the next 3 days? I may do a water change tomorrow before I leave for the weekend, probably 30%.
