Amonia & Nitrite was "0" but now it's up...
All previous tests to last night were 0 for ammonia & nitrites, nitrates 10, ph always 7.6. (AZ tap water.)
But this evening the water was slightly cloudy so I tested it again, the results were: ammonia .50, nitrites .50, nitrates 10. I did a 25% water change tonight, treated with conditioner.
After the water change the ammonia & nitrites dropped by half, but are still at .25 each.
I did add some fish 2 days ago, and last night also tried a new frozen shrimp and probably overfed.
Do you think I should continue to change 25% of the water each day until ammonia & nitrites are back to 0, or ?
Thanks so much,
