Mary, are you able to make up a guide for the easiest/fastest way to do water changes on a cycled tank? I am a newbie and am trying to figure out how to do this in my head. I have many worries that:
1. The fish will jump out while I'm trying to siphon
2. If I'm supposed to shut everything off before doing so
3. If I mix de-chlorinator in a container, then just dump it in (or does it have to cure?)
4. How do I match temperature of water if my tank is heated and the fresh water (apparently isn't)
Ahhh so many questions! I would appreciate all and any help, should you decide to write up a guide.
Oh, and personally your thread was very helpful and informative.
