RE: missing a water change.
Yes, tis true. When I do water changes, such s what I did the last TWO
days, I usually pull the fish and mops, shaking the mops out vigorously of
course, and then suck as much mulm off of the bottom as possible. I will
also use a 90 to 100 ppm water to my hard water killie tanks as the ppm in
one of them today was 440 and now is back down to about 225 ppm. I have
used bog wood successfully to reduce Dissolved Solids (ppm.) It reduced 350
ppm water to 130 over a two week span. Remember that bog wood must be
treated before entering the tank, otherwise, who knows what you'll have.
