Have lost all stock twice due to bad waster, first from using tap water and the bacterial issues and second from chemical media. So now we have basically no media but the bio cubes, phosguard and the filter that works in the pump. This crop of fish have been doing well, and the trick has been offloading them when they outgrow the tank into the koi pond. Been happy with this iteration of the tank so far. Decided to finally make a thread here for advice and because I don’t keep up well with this tank, which is probably partly why it has suffered a bit more than my two SW tanks.
