splendidbetta Posted June 10, 2006 Report Share Posted June 10, 2006 I personally think that this no-water changes method sounds great, especially for longfinned HM males. I would like to know why Eddie and Lilli use it with success. -Do all the tanks have fully cycled, efficient filters? -Are they under or overstocked? -Does pH remain safe? -Ammonia is not a problem as the water is acidic? -Have there been any health issues using this method? -Is there any changing or replacing of water at all? -Does uneaten food get removed? -Are spawns made in this water? I might try it one day, but only on adult fish. I still want the super-fast growth rates I get with clean, regularly changed water. I was thinking of using one aspect of this method, and that is the acidic pH, which means that toxic ammonia remains non-toxic Ammonium. Acidic ph will be acheived through the use of peat in the power filter. Regular small water changes, perhaps just to siphon dirt from the bottom each day or every second day, will also take place, but not so much as to disturb the water quality dramatically. Bottled bettas will recieve daily 100% water changes, but with acidic, aged water. Any information, help, suggestions and advice would be appreciated.
