I would retest ammonia tomorrow, before adding anymore. It does not seem likely that you could go from 8ppm to 1 with a 50% water change. Give the water a chance to circulate.

Counting drops is really the best way to keep track of the amount of ammonia you add. If you have any empty clean bottles that have a dropper cap, that would work.

Look in the infant section of stores such as Walmart or Target. You can find medicine droppers for a couple bucks.

135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
