the ammonia reading was off the chart. i'm thinking it's because our new filter hasn't had time to mature yet, but the old one completley stopped so we had to buy a new one. we did a 50% water change and have added both the chemicals we usually use, one of them specifically says the granules in it are for reducing nitrites. i didn't go in the shop, my husband did.
would some live plants help? apparently they 'use up' ammonia, or is it going to be more hassle than it's worth?
will the fish in their delicate state tolerate daily water changes?
