Even worse because your tapwater is less than ideal, so while large waterchanges will reduce ammonia, it will not help your tank with the underlying problem of how to process nitrite faster. Your ph is up, which is good, but if your tapwater is very low ph, large water changes will keep lowering it.
if this was my tank, i might do nothing for a couple days and see if your readings stabilize. But keep testing to be ready to act if water quality deteriorates.
That nitrite has got to go to zero or very close for long term.
got it no large water changes and Nitrite goes to 0 usually a couple of days after water changes I'll give it a try on the do nothing method I hope won't put my fish In risk I'm really scared of ammonia should I add nore plants? tank is like a jungle now
Hallyx sorry for posting that way I'll put it in that order from now :). So today's test
I'll try to live it for a couple of days just testing in case something goes wrong hoping that willfinish all this situation :)
