I would just leave it alone. No need to do continual water changes. You have some ammonia no big deal.

No deaths and it's over 4yrs old. Started with 15 now there's over 50. It gets direct sunlight 5 hrs a day or so.

My jar is closed most of the time. I open it up every 2 weeks or so for air/gas exchange. Here's pics of it. I just had babies released again in here a week ago. That is not sand at the bottom. It is necessary for the jar in order to be in balance.
