  1. Water Changes, Water Changes, water changes! I used to never do water changes and only replenish the evaporated water when needed. After a few fish died I researched why and since then I've been pretty successful. Even now I don't do enough! Working on that though!
  2. Thanks! I read your thread on the baking soda and I'm definitely going to use it. Should I do a gradual change or is it okay to add all the baking soda at once? And okay, I figured the water changes may have something to do with it so I'll up the water changes. Add the baking soda all at once, but it's important to mix and dissolve it first. Okay, thanks!

  4. Tap: Ammonia - 0 ppm Nitrate - 0 ppm Nitrite - 0 ppm gH - 25 ppm Chlorine - 0 ppm kH - 80 ppm pH - 6.8 Tank: Ammonia - 0 ppm Nitrate - 40 ppm Nitrite - 0 ppm gH - 75 ppm Chlorine - 0 ppm kH - 40 ppm pH - 6.2 Water Changes: -> 25% Water Change about every 2 weeks -> Most recent water change was 2 days ago with the purified water from the pet store -> Most water changes are done with tap water
  5. Hello All! I'm new here and I've been keeping goldfish for about 3 years. Recently, I moved and had to transfer my tank to my new home - my setup is a 37 gallon tank with Penguin 250 filter (200 gph and i'm upgrading it this week). I have two Ryukin goldfish, one is 8 inches long and the other is 6 inches long. I only have about 30 pounds of sand and about seven large rocks. I understand that the rocks affect the water chemistry and they were tested and boiled before being placed in the tank. The tank was also set up with 1/2 old water and 1/2 purified water from my local fish store. My problem is this, the pH is very acidic, almost 6.2, my alkalinity is extremely low and my nitrates are pretty high. I added java moss to help the alkalinity. I know I'm not the only person who keeps rocks in their tank so is there anything special I should be doing? Thanks for all the help!
