I do not know of the tannins becoming toxic, but I also did regular water changes.
I personally loved having tannins in my tank, however I do know many who find the darker water to be 'ugly'. I used both driftwood and IAL. I had both a 15g and 29g tank. The 15 gallon I was able to get relatively murky which my beta fish seemed to like, I used both the leaves and wood. the 29 gallon tank only got as dark as very very weak tea, but I still appreciated it, in that tank I was only able to use wood as I had only a couple of leaves.
@sde, hi everybody I'm getting a tiger salamander coming from Katy Texas what are the shipping conditions that's okay to have them shipped to me in the state of Vermont it's just starting to get the temperature low above 45 but it may be too hot to ship him any thoughts or ideas on how to work this out
I currently have a 3 year old axolotl, he hasn't been eating for the past couple of weeks and has lost a lot of weight. Hedwig usually eats bloodworms and earthworms just fine but now he won't even stud it. I've done a water change to make his nitrate lower and his water is at a good temperature
Hey guys I was wondering if my axolotl looks fine to you he/she (still don’t know) I’d activate and eating as usual but I did notice veins in the tail area.. let me know what you guys think! Also if anyone could tell if it’s a boy or girl that would be great! (Zolo was eating a worm and pretty sure the worm pooped XD)
