Default Tadpole smell...

Hi guys, I siphon all the poo and uneaten food in my tadpole containers every day. 30-50% water change daily. Containers have limnobium-java moss-riccia-almond leaves.Problem is, it smells disgusting still... I've been told tadpoles like it funky, so I'm refraining from completely washing and resetting their containers. Any thoughts?

I never refresh their water, I just add some tapwater that is kept on room temperature if the waterlevel gets too low. The water smells, but only when your up 5cm's of the water...

By changing the water daily, i dont think you leaves have much use in the water. If I had to guess, I'd say your foodsource is the problem of your smell.

you want a smell? Check out some 6 week old Hydei culture media/slop. You will be praying for a baby diaper to change.
