It’s 25L not sure what that is in gal, I’ll try that thanks, I know this is small for a goldfish but I’m looking for a 100LI had the same problem with the KH. I was advised by someone working at my LFS to put cichlid rock into a media bag and put it into the filter. It seems to have worked because my KH levels have gone up. What size is your tank? You should use about 1/2 cup of cichlid rock for every 10 gallons.
Thank you will do do you think the fact that the tank is a little small is causing this? I am in the process of getting a bigger tank
Thank you I will do this, I think I may be over feeding him/her it’s a greedy little thing and never seems to be full so I feel bad and feed it some more maybe that’s where I’m going wrongMy water here is zero GH/KH and the pH readily lowers below 7. I had goldfish in my outdoor pond (filled with this water, plus obviously rain water which is also very soft and acidic) for several years, and they spawned, and over-wintered (the surface froze but not the pond). I only lost them when a troop of racoon discovered them and were relentless night after night until they caught and ate all of them. But for the several years, the goldfish were doing very well in very soft water, so I wouldn't mess with the GH/KH. Just have a much larger tank, and do a weekly water change of 60-70% of the tank volume, vacuuming the gravel well and keep the filter well rinsed. Bee careful not to overfeed, fish do not need as much as some think and what goes in will come out and add to the waste.
Yes, that nitrite level is safeView attachment 94995 View attachment 94996 View attachment 94997 View attachment 94998 View attachment 94999 So just a little update on the water today I’ve done a big water change around 80% maybe a little more, I’ve tested the water again what do you guys think? does it look a little better? I’ve also used those aqua balls
