You water quality is bad, lower the water level so they will not crawl out, at the same time, try to improve the water quality.

If they try to crawl after a water change, that could mean you do not use decholrinated water.

Water level now lowered 10%. For WC always the water will be added with miniumum amount anti chlorine and aged for one day before using. Is it nitrofin anti chlorine bad for them?

I am using Nutrofin Plus, it is fine.


Also like what betta_zoid87 said in another thread, your water parameter may be at the extreme end, you may want to check that/

Any one using Nutrafin Clear Particulate in tanks with CRS? My new tank with ADA Amaziona is always smokey on the top part.

Very interesting thread.
May I ask how to increase gH to about 4dH if our tap water is only 1dH while maintain tank water pH unchanged @6.7?

Tank pH=6.7, dH=2 (TDS 110), kH=4
Tap water pH=7.8, dH=1, kH=2
What will happen doing 50% WC?

If adding limestones TDS of my tank water increased from 110 to 118 within an hour and I noticed kH also being pulled up.

Thank you.

Have a newbie question, if the PH is 6.2 to 6.4 and ammonia is zero, what would be the possible reason if cherry shrimp keep disappearing in the tank?

Ok, I have 2 apisto Tri in the tank with some tetra and pencils..

I think you open the stomach of the Apisto and find the skeleton inside !!!
