What Little-Fizz tells you is what will work if you want to save them. I had the same ammonia readings for days & days in a smaller tank and I did the daily water changes until the tank was finally cycled. I didn't lose anyone in the process. Do the daily water changes and hopefully it'll all work out. Good luck!

Yes, wait until your water parameters are stable and your tank is cycled, then you can think about adding more fish.

During water changes I always treat the water I'm going to use with a dechlorinator. Are you using one? Just curious.....

It's actually just a liquid product that you use to treat your water to remove chlorine/nitrites/etc.

I buy my supplies on line as I refuse to do business with Pet Store "Chains".

This is what & where I buy:

Just keep doing those water changes....

I'm not familiar with "tap safe" but if it removes chlorine, chloramine and ammonia that is a good thing for your fish. Hopefully "tap safe" does not drastically alter PH? But you have your tests kits for checking that info!

hi yes tap safe removes chlorine and i have safe water which removes harmfu amonia and nitrite this also boosts filteration after water changes
