test kit questions
I have a newly planted 150g tank, f/w, will have schooling fish and oto's.
The pH is 6.8-7.0. I have one airstone and a magnum 350 on it. Now I start
to get murky. The plants and fish work together, creating as well as they
can a symbiotic relationship in an unnatural setting. I have read
everywhere that test kits are needed (especially by beginners to plants such
as myself!) I have an ammonia and pH and nitrite kit. My son has a small
tank whose nitrites are very high. What do we do now? Just water changes,
or is there a balance that is off balance that needs correcting?
How bout for the fish and plant tank of mine? Do I really need a CO2 kit,
dissolved oxygen kit, hardness (GH & KH) kit, iron kit, etc. Is there a
readily available book out there that would explain things to me better than
these kits (which cost an arm and a leg?) I'm rather clueless as to my next
step, any clarification would be really helpful.
