I think I've really messed up. just taken readings nitrates down 5-7, nitrites 0, ph 7.4 but ammonia looks like it's up a little bit 0-0.25 doesn't seem much but it's obviously distressing the fish as they're not moving much and hiding. Can't get anything now cos it's mid-night here so all I can hope is they make it through the night and I'll see what I can get tomorrow morning to help, any suggestions? The shop definately shouldn't have told me the tank was ready for fish I'm very annoyed. I've looked at most places that sell tropical fish in area and thought I'd found the best place cos the tanks looked clean and well looked after with a wide selection of fish and they offered free water tests, since I don't know about cycling I thought best use their knowledge and get them to tell me when the water was ready. Shame I didn't join this site til after I got fish.
Be very greatful if you can advise me what to get that'll help.
