2/13/20- A student fed 2.0 grams of size 2 food to the trout. The filter cover was cleaned. A 4 gallon water change was done. 20 mL of Nitrifying bacteria was added to the tank.
WATER QUALITY UPDATE (two hours after the water change)
In the picture below, you can see how much fish waste and excess food get pulled in toward the filter intake. Once a week, Mrs. Daniel removes this cover and washes off the waste. Previously, the cover was there to make sure smaller fish didn't get sucked into the filter. Since the fish are bigger now, it acts as an easy way to trap waste. It's easier to remove the filter cover than to clean the inside of the filter tank.
