| || | Has my tank crashed?
I have been treating my tank for ich. Now that all visible symptoms have been non existent for three days I did a 50% water change last night. The water tests both before & after were disappointing, to say the least. Prior to water change ammonia measured .25, nitrites .25. This morning I tested again. Results were ammonia zero, nitrite reading was in between 0 and .25.
The questions I have are:
Did the meds crash my bio filter? The medication I used was Kordon's Rid-Ich. I used it at 1/2 the recommended dose as the tank houses loaches, otos, and a pictus.
Should I do another water change today? If I should do a water change I think it should be a 20% change. Or, do I give it another day to give the bio filter a chance to "catch" up??
Any other info I need to supply for a response??
