So I'm thinking of doing a 15-25% water change every day. I've been doing that since I put the shrimps/fish/deco in and it works nicely... also because the shells caused the water to be cloudy, so I'd like to eliminate all the yucky stuff. An added bonus is that I have well water, which was tested before and is fine to put in the tank as long as it's the right temp. I just mix hot and cold water until the temp is perfect :)
I also have a TopFin aerator that I've had for a while. I used a small piece of a bubble tube and attached it to the tank wass in the corner, because the whole tube caused too many large bubbles, and too much water movement. Omelette was confused by the bubbles and kept trying to eat them ^_^
Well anyway, the shrimps still seem quite lively, though they've stopped stressing out over every little thing. When I came home from school I noticed that Ash (the littlest shrimp) had climbed all the way to a silk leaf at the surface of the tank so he could eat a fallen fish crumble... hehe little cutie xD
I'll find a cheap turkey baster at the local dollar store... shouldn't be much money xD My mom isn't willing to sacrifice one of hers lol.
I'l just glad all of you care for my little shrimpies and fishy ^_^
