My ammonia in my tank is 1 I have been doing water changes to get it down everything else is fine in the tank nitrite nitrates ph. Do I keep doing daily water changes to get it down or is there something I can put in there to take it down faster? I also need to start using melgafix ad my fish had a couple of spots. The tank is a 40 litre only one fish I know the tank is too small but I can't get another one at the moment. So until I can I have to use this one. Your help would be great thank you. I had to take out the live plant also as I was having huge trouble with snails.
Hi Anna could I do a big water change like 50%? I have been doing 25% ones and adding 1/2 ml of stress coat and I add quick start. Would a big water change help? I did an ammonia check today and it was nearly 0.5ml. If I can get it down without using the other product would be good. also why does these two spots keep coming they go away then come again is it because the ammonii there is only two spots white ones. I feel horrible there is anyways some thing wrong it seems I do weekly water changes and keep it clean.
thank you for your help just did a big water change will get a bigger filter tomorrow and look out for a bigger thank you
Hello Anna the ammonia is good now I did a big water change did a good gravel vac and have a new filter. Will look into getting a bigger tank soon. I have noticed for a while now that my fish is swimming a bit crooked. Then other times he's fine. He doesn't have swim bladder but just he swims off to one side sometimes not all the time. is this normal? I looked on the Internet and they said its ok if he's not floating up the top of the tank or lying on the bottom. But i wanted to check other than that he seems fine
Thank you for that. I have started treating him for the white spots on his head they look a lot better already thanks again for your help I will keep an eye on him
