you probably would have done better using pure ammonia vs fish food. imo its easier to measure when adding to the tank. its cheaper and you don't waste food that can be given to the livestock. but i know some people do take the route that you take and that is by choice just as mine was to use liquid ammonia.

I did lose one cory last week to what looked like fungal infection (it killed him in less than 24 hours though, despite QT tank and treatment...) It's been over a week since my blunder, I don't get why the ammonia is not coming down. I think I may be overfeeding though, and I'd like to know, it is okay to stop feeding the fishes for 3-4 days to see if the ammonia will come down? I'm at loss here. My ammonia test could be faulty but it's about 8 months-old and has never been like that!
