I need some advice.... quick.... if possible.
Ammonia at this time .25
(lfs did not have test kit . Had to buy separate and they were out of Nitrite and nitrate tests)
Established tank over 3 months ago.
I have 2 adult platys
6 juvenile platys
3 adult male guppys
3 female guppys.... (others are in other tanks) (all parameters are good in those)
1 Cory ( I believe that is what it is)
Moved pleco out of tank 3 days ago due to aggressiveness towards tank mates. (using him to setup a new tank)
I have been using test strips up until today. I went to lfs to buy a test kit ( have had experience with them) and when I tested the community tank the ammonia level was .50.
I did a 50 % water change and the ammonia level is down but still at .25.... I do not want to stress them out but not sure when it will be better to do another water change. It has been along time since I have had issues with this and cannot remember how often for guppys. I do not like using chemicals to set or change things but need to know if there is something that I can do to help my friends.
Please any help is appreciated and I learn quick*S*
