It’s Smart To Be Proactive!
The best way to keep your aquarium clean is to maintain good water quality. This will keep your fish strong and vibrant, as well as preventing disease.
How Do I Maintain A Healthy Environment?
It is important to test your aquarium water weekly to verify good quality in addition to a bi-weekly partial water change of no more than 25% to help reduce toxic buildup, remove debris the filter missed, and replenish the oxygen available to fish.
How Do I Take Good Care Of My Aquarium & Fish?
- Feed & observe fish daily
- Test water quality weekly
- Change 25% water bi-weekly
- Restore your ecosystem monthly
Feed Your Fish Daily
Feed your fish twice daily with API Fish Food which contains nutritionally enhanced proteins, allowing for easy uptake of nutrients and maximum absorption, resulting in less excrement for clear, clean water. Only give the amount of food fish can eat in 2 to 3 minutes depending on the species. Some fish such as bottom feeders and algae eaters will need up to 30 minutes to 2 hours. Take time to observe fish and the water temperature to ensure they are active & healthy.

Don't forget you can cut the strip longways into two, so you can double-up for the same £!
I panicked and have been adding anti ammonia stuff to my tank for MONTHS now ontop of frequent water changes because these strips said the ammonia was so high. I have been cleaning the tank like crazy and worrying about the fish’s health and lives
I read online that the strips aren’t as accurate as a liquid type test. So I bought one of those, turns out ammonia is 0 - yes, ZERO!!!!! So I’ve been giving my fish extra chemicals and water changes which stress them out, based on the reading from these FAULTY strips. I tested the strip in a newly opened bottle of water, and guess what, it showed ammonia at 6.0 ......
DO NOT BUY THESE! Get a liquid test, they are way more accurate

Basically, these strips give inaccurate readings.
They appear more than adequate for that purpose.
