    Help, my water is so green!!

    I do have one small plant but it's pretty torn up since my oscar likes to push it around and bite it. Would switching to sand help make it clean or is it better to stick with gravel. I saw some people say that gravel is better for Oscar's but I'm not sure.

    Help, my water is so green!!

    maybe it's the lights since they run for around 10 hours I believe, try t do a water change every two to three weeks. I'll reduce the time but what can I do now? I ran out of test strips, and haven't had a chance to get more so I'm not sure about water chemistry.

    Tank mate ideas

    Normally it is a month max when I get busy, I think it had been a little over two weeks since my last one and when I changed the water today there wasn't much stuff in the water. He is a very messy eater so that's part of the reason I want to add so they can pick up what he drops.
