Ammonia Meter Malfunctioning?
So I've got that thing in my tank that constantly measures ammonia levels. I set up my tank on November 13 and I have 3 male bettas in it (divided 10 gallon). It didn't show any change by 6 days so I did a 50% water change. Now, 3 days later, it's showing alert (5 percent ammonia).
Whats going on?
Do a water test.
I don't have a test kit and can't get one.
I've heard though that a 50% water change once a week should be okay...
Weekly water changes are a must
I've only had the tank since November 13 and I did my first water change on Friday. The ammonia meter today though looks normal. Idk....
