ammonia is back up which i figured would happen and im done for the night ill prolly wake up to 1 dead tiger barb and maybe a dead red tail shark
The only reason that I can think of why your ammonia is high is that your tank is probably overstocked. Lots of fish create lots of waste which in turn raises the ammonia level. I also am new to the hobby but I learned to follow the rule that says One Inch per Fish per Gallon. But you have to remember that when your fish age they get a lot a bigger. Your tiger fish could grow up to 3 inches a piece! Good luck = )
I would probably do bigger water changes, 30%, each day since the ammonia will "bite" you quick and you might not have to worry about your tank being overstocked for too long. I don't normally like to use chemicals in tanks but at levels of 8.0, I would. Also a Dr Foster & Smith has the API Master Test Kit for $16. You won't find it for less in any stores. It's well worth the money!
