i did not intend on housing them longer than the QT period before adding to the main group in my 625g -
my 4 sponge filters were not able to process the waste from these two - this tank was to be QT tank and that was the level of filtration i had for it -
added : one emp 350 , two marineland 360’s ($100ea) my favorite affordable filter... & one 600gpg power head - just gotta build up bio filter now - one of the canisters is from an established tank, hopefully this will increase my BB -
fish doing well, i’ve had to feed to the level of the bio filter
there is some scale loss on one via damage from its tank mate - i’m short on dithers.... got some baby severums, flag tail, and an angel fish....
added salt keeping water clean
