HOLY AMMONIA SPIKE BATMAN
one of the guppies in the tank looks terrible
. He looked and acted fine this morning, and my daughter gave me a report this afternoon.....
I immediately performed a water quality test when I came home from work, just as we have done every other day since setup. Our results are:
nitrites 0 ppm
nitrates 5.0 ppm
Honestly, I did not see this coming, I mean BAM, out of nowhere. By reading this forum, my first action was to perform a 40 percent water change. and I will retest and repeat water change if necessary tomorrow. Any words of wisdom???
I hope the little guy pulls through, he was so full of life this morning. And the other one acts fine? His color is dull, he is lethargic,and just mopes in the plants, or at the bottom of the tank....
I guess time will tell, I just hate the first fatality may come only 9 days into this project
