Hi all, I've just become a member and am in need of some advice please. I bought a new boyu 250 litre tank for Christmas :). I love it BUT I'm not sure if I need to put anything in the top filter???. I've had a look on line and they have balls and ceramic noodle things I think. I think I need these as my nitrite and nitrate levels are high and I've done a 50% water change added nitrate treatment and stabelizer and prime. Also I'm not sure how you clean the filter in the top hood. I'm all new to this. I have also lost 4 fish since Christmas :( any help please

Did you do a fishless cycle before you added any fish (see here)? If not, then you are cycling fish in and that is why fish are dying - they are swimming in their own waste products. Get a decent liquid based test kit a.s.a.p and then follow this guide to dealing with ammonia and nitrite spikes: http://www.fishkeeping.co.uk/articles ... ammonia-nitrite-spike.htm

Thank you, no I didn't do a fish less cycle :( i wasnt advised too. So I have done a 50% water change today does that mean I need to do a water change every day and if so how much? Do you think I still need to buy noodle thingys as well? Any advice is much appreciated thank you
