ok, wow. Having a constant water changing schedule is a must. thats what i will have to do.
And I'll have to buy a testing kit. What should i look for when buying a testing kit? And do i have to buy a KIT or are there tools you put place into the tank and they just constantly and automatically tell you what's what.
The Freshwater API aquarium test kit is what I and most members use. You can order the kit online from Amazon. It is fairly accurate and not difficult to use.
