Other easy plant for a small aquarium would be Pennywort, Java Moss, Java Fern, Even a Moss ball would help right now. A heavily planted tank will reduce any negative effects of the "cycle" process.
At this point, I think that would be your best bet in conjunction with the regular water changes. Also, test your source water and get a good water conditioner like Prime. Good job for being proactive for the health of your fish. You will get this all sorted out. It seems impossible in the beginning but it will get easier.
I can only go to the pet store tomorrow because they are closed now
I almost wish Walmart sold that kind of stuff hahaha.
I just took another Ammonia reading
Ammonia Level: 4.0ppm So it got cut in half.....I am going to probably do one more water change tonight (Should I wait a certain amount of time!?) The temp hasnt changed at ALL.
Also I cannot find Prime at Super Pet. I will try Pet Smart. Where do you all take your sample for the water from? The top? The filter? The bottom?
