I set up my 29 Gallon about 2 weeks ago, added 3 goldfish about 2 days after setup. I waited a week and then moved my goldfish into my outdoor pond.
I seeded the aquarium at this point with Stress Zyme (and if I could find better stuff in my area I would). At this time I also added 2 balloon mollies (male and female), who have looked great and happy and active ever since I got them.
Since the female balloon molly has decided to be territorial with the male. I went and purchased some more fish yesterday.1 small Powder Blue Gourami, and 5 long finned Danios, assuming this would cut down on the territorial thing, which it did.
So I had aprox 1 week with 3 goldfish in a 29 gallon, then 1 week with 2 balloon mollies in a 29 gallon.
Getting back to my issue. I tested the water today (after a water change, I do them 25% every 2 days) and it reads 0ppm Ammonia, but it reads 5.0ppm nitrite and either 40-80ppm Nitrate (Really hard to read Doc Wellfish tests.... -_-) Against the color cards it seems the worst. But I thought that Nitrite was not supposed to get higher until the Nitrate had gone down.
I'm adding a teaspoon of Stress Zyme with every water change.
Everything seems wonderful, everyone in the tank is happy (even the bickering balloon mollies have laid off) but granted I DID just add them yesterday. No one is even hiding (Like I'm used to when adding newbies).
Is this due to my water change? Adding too many fish too soon? Pretending I knew what I was doing?
