i suppose it all depends on which suspected variances make top priority. assuming all water is fit for human consumption, and a spare bucket allows for pretreatment of chloramines, my biggest concerns would refocus on toxin accumulation. even fasted fish continue to excrete wastes. and oxygen depletion causes ph to crash. IMO.Laurel said:The only issue that I could see you running into with doing 100% water changes daily is that the water parameters will likely vary greatly each day. You'd be better off doing partial water changes daily, maybe 30-50%.
i had no idea, that water quality decreased so much, as you get nearer to Oregon from Missouri.TheExoticFish.com said:
Water quality, meaning pH, nitrates, and nitrite reading, possibly ammonia too.lloyd said:
a difference in nitrate should have minimal effects (short of it jumping from 0 ro 40 etc) ammonia and nitrite would have to be similar, as there should be regulations on them, as they have an effect on humans. plus, a good dechlorinater (eg prime) should render them non-toxic.TheExoticFish.com said:Water quality, meaning pH, nitrates, and nitrite reading, possibly ammonia too.lloyd said:
