      It’ll reduce the tannins but get the ammo block as it’ll absorb the ammonia which is the bigger prob.

      0.50 ppm ammonium/ammonia

      I did a 33% change.
      Should have been fine.
      Probably got the louse from comet.
      Any central/south American non cichlid would be preferable as food

      Think I pulled it off!

      Gross!


      Anything I should pay attention for now? If he grows another louse, how do I treat the tank?
