PostSubject: How to keep a tank running?   Sun Jan 02, 2011 7:49 pm

I am hoping shortly to send my first babies on their way. What I would like to know is how can I keep their tank running. Do I just carry on as if they are still there with water changes etc or will it go 'bad'? Or what should I do as I may need it again soon and it seems a shame to have to start again.
I am giving my babies to my LFS as I am no longer able to keep up with feeding and cleaning 60 of them in a 2' tank. Sleep
If anyone here would like some you are welcome to collect.
They are all looking and eating well on wafers, spinach, courgette, cucumber, beans etc
