I’ve been cycling my aquarium for several weeks and have a high level of nitrite. How can I eliminate it?

We recommend a double dose of Fluval Cycle Biological Enhancer after having performed 50% water changes. At this stage, one or two 50% water changes should dilute the nitrite sufficiently to ensure the bacteria introduced keeps the nitrite level down.

How frequently should I perform partial water changes?

We recommend performing partial water changes every week or two. When keeping aquariums with high stocking densities, more frequent water changes are required. Always make sure the replacement water is of the right temperature and conditioned with Fluval Aqua Plus Water Conditioner.

My aquarium often suffers from high phosphate levels and algae problems. What can I do?

Perform regular water changes and be sure to remove any excess food in the tank. Live plants can help control phosphate levels. Use a test kit to identify the source of the phosphates and address it directly.

Are there any issues performing a weekly 20% water change in a heavily-stocked tank?

No. Frequent water changes are called for when keeping aquariums with high stocking densities. Make sure the replacement water is of the right temperature and conditioned with Fluval Aqua Plus Water Conditioner.
