My real problem is the ammonia level, its at a 3, i did a 25% water change today, when should i do another one to continue lowering it for him!!! Please help i dont want him to die!!!!
I used something by NutraFin called "Cycle." I used it according to the directions, poured it directly into the filter though. It's a bacteria starter.
Then I used something called "Prime." It temporarily "fixes" the water so that it is safe. I mean, a full dose only lasts 24-48 hours.
Is there a way to buffer the filter?
