Ok for the pass days i been having problems with ammonia in my month and a half old 3gal tank, 3 Days ago i bought a api freshwater test kit and when i tested for ammonia it readed 8.0 ppm So i called my local fishstore and they gave me prime which said it will take care of it but for the pass 2 days i been giving a dose which is 6 drops with a 25% and a 50% water change and it still reads on the dark side which is 8.0 ppm..
I would like too get this too normal because i don't want it too kill my fish which i have 4 in there now which is 2 neons tetras which are very small maybe like under a inch one of those been in there sense i got the tank, And the other one just got put in 3days ago which i thought everything was good till i got the test kit.. There 2 other gold tetas in there which one is about a inch which been in there sense i got the tank and i added the other one with the other neon tetra..
I know i shouldve waited too put more fish in but i didn't have the kit at the time...
I also want too mention i lost about 4 other fish the pass month in the tank but one was because it didn't take the water temp well when i first put him in and also i got most of the fish at walmart except those 2 fish i got at the fish store 3days ago.
But the walmart fish was 2 fish that's in the tank now which is the neon tetra and the glow tetra which still hanging on, And the other 4 that died was 1 neon that died as soon as i put him in the water and 2 glow tetras which died about 3 weeks after i got the tank, and lately about a week ago a sucker fish which was fine than i found him on his side breather hard and not moving and died about a hour later:( He was really active.
So hopefully i could get this problem fix but i herd if it was 8.0 all the fish would be dead by now so i don't know..
I also have another 10gal cycling with 3 zebra dianos sense 4 days ago and they doing really well and everything is testing good, And i was thinking of putting the 3gal fish in that right now but i know they probably wont take the cycle well and die overnight.. I have a empty 5gal also but not sure what too do because i herd tetra neon's ain't a good cycling fish.
Should i just keep doing 25 too 50% water changes everyday and add prime?
Also this is the tank which i thought was nice at first but i hate it now which why i went and got a 10gal for my other fish and hopefully after the cycle i can put the 3gal fish in that one. http://www.walmart.com/ip/3-Gallon-A...m-Kit/13448744
