I haven't been able to maintain my tank for the past few weeks and has been in care of a friend. Get back to regular schedule...yeah, no good, all the plants were dead, couldn't see through the algae, filter was so clogged with algae absolutely nothing was happening, dead fish stuck under driftwood...it was nasty.
Anyhow, did two water changes, scraped algae off glass, got filter back into proper working order, removed dead fish (there are survivors surprisingly), bought some new plants, all that good stuff.
Tested water, nothing all that terrible, ph 7.4, 0 nitrite and nitrate, but ammonia is off the charts..
8.0ppm ++++, is there any product that can quickly and safely bring this down? Way way down?
