Re: [APD] Cloudy water

Sometimes, if I'm especially lax, the fish jump for joy, figuratively speaking, when I change the water, 50% or more.
Not that I recommend wating too long between changes. Not good for tanks or babies. ;-)

The Northeast Council of Aquarium Societies (NEC) celebrates its 50th year of service at its 31st annual convention, April 7-9, 2006 -- including *An Evening with Aquarium Legends*.

Read the speaker list, then download the registration form, and get set to join the fun at what promises to be the year's biggest tropical fish convention.


And while you're there, attend the AGA's annual meeting Friday afternoon (2-4pm). This year's speaker is Claus Christensen, Tropica's Managing Director.

I do anywhere from a 50% to 85% water change weekly or whenever I get around
to it depending on how lazy I am.  I haven't seen any fish falling over dead
from it. Then again, I haven't told the fish I'm not an expert so they
probably don't know they are supposed to be dying.  Stupid fish.
