well dont over-add bio-spira since it can have a negative effect.

That's the problem, I have already done more than a 10% tonight. and every night this week. Started at 5 on Monday. Any ideas on the guppy? Is it just the high Nitrites taking their toll :(

Detectable ammonia and nitrites are toxic to the fish.

Swimming at the surface, and not gasping as far as I can tell.

do they have brown gills (look inside the gills if you can)? And do they have rapid gill movement?

The only thing that I can see is growth like. Gills appear to be similar in color to the Danios I have in my 29G. Kind of pinkish.
