Another important property is the quiet flow filters that keep the water clean while allowing the natural microorganisms to thrive. This filter contains cartridges that act as both mechanical and chemical filters. The filters and conditioning system ensure that the concentration of solutes in the water is favorable for growth and development of the fish. Once in a while, the fish are prone to succumb to unwanted death due to ingestion of certain compounds that do not suit their body metabolism. To prevent this, it is necessary that you pay attention to your filter and conditioning system, and provide regular water changes. A heater is also part of this 20 gallon fish tank kit which is used to maintain the temperature depending on the type of fish you are keeping and the ambient temperature of the environment. This kit does come with water conditioner, a fish net, and even a small sample of food to get you going.
125 GPH, For fresh or saltwater aquariums up to 30 gallons
Hi Eileen – I’m hoping you can give some good advise. I have five large goldfish, the largest being just shy of 11″, which were just moved from a 30 gallon tank to a 120 gallon tank. I added two koi to the mix and then realized I have a high ammonia problem. I purchased the 120 gallon tank used. It came with gravel, decorations, wet/dry filter, an eheim 2228 canister and of course three Jack Dempsey’s. The Dempsey’s are in a 55 gallon and are now very happy but my goldfish are having a tough time. The ammonia is through the roof. We noticed the problem six days ago, we’ve done 20-30 gallon water changes three times and as of yesterday we lost one goldfish and the ammonia is still just as high as it was when we noticed the problem. We did use the existing gravel, decorations, filter media, etc which the last owner used. The tank was up and running when we purchased it but it did sit in our garage unused for approximately two weeks while we repaired the stand. We are at a loss, do we just continue to do 20-30 gallon water changes every other day?
