hi okay normally I don't waste my time writing on these but I stumbled upon this and was AMAZED at the wrong things I am reading, first of all fish like plants it creates an Eco system secondly, your tank of getting white after water changes because your bio is spiking, taking all of the water out is the WORST thing you could do to the person who suggested this really has no place giving any advice, when water gets milky white it's a showing that your biological bacteria is unbalanced and is spawning to try and create a new balance you are either replacing yor water with chlorinated water when doing a water change or maybe your cleaning the front with windex but either way your killing the bio somehow the tank is trying to fix its self. When adding water after a small water change because too much is bad, be sure to de chlorinate BEFORE you put the water in not after. Many people buy the tap conditioner and don't realise if you add it to the water after you put it in the tank you just wasted your time and money. And also next time your water is white test your nitrites chances are after a minute or so you'll have a pretty purple color, you want light blue. Try leaving the tank alone when it gets milky white or add a product like prime. I have worked in aquarium care for over 6 years so I am not just talking from no real experience.
Corrine, would it be alright to ask you a few questions? I'm tired of my tank being a freaking crime scene.
