Hey I’m new to saltwater, I have 2 clowns and I used the fritz turbo start. It’s been running for about 10 days now with zero ammonia and little nitrates. When should I actually do my first water change?
I have the drops for ammonia and nitrates tests but I only have strips for nitrites as of now. I heard they are not the most accurate but it’s reading 0 I believe.Having 5 ppm nitrates is a good sign that the ammonia and nitrites are properly cycling. What is your Nitrite reading?
Part of the reason for the water changes is to remove the bad things (nitrates and phosphates) and replenish the good stuff. Not much advantage to changing water yet.
