Ammonia: .50
Nitrate: 5.0
Nitrite: 0
PH: 7.6

Should I do a small water change to get Ammonia to 0?

Looks like my tank is recycling?

Tank has small amount of new growth and water is crystal clear. :)

i would have thought with ammonia at that level it would be the nitrIte that would be 5 not the nitrate

So I think I know why the ammonia was .50. While looking at the tank I noticed a fish had gotten stuck in the ladder for the c02 and had died. I could not even tell what kind of fish he was to start out as. So with that cleaned up, the co2 latter taken out, 20% water change, hope that fixed the issue. Going to test water tonight so see where I'm at and will update for more advice.

Well that could certainly raise the Ammonia levels. Poor little fish. :( Hopefully that is all it is and you can get your fish back in their tank soon. Keep doing the water tests and water changes and it should recover soon. Any people think I am weird for doing daily head counts. lol I am paranoid something like this will happen and I won't notice it right away.
