I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

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

That's pretty high.:) I'd do a 10% water change to lower it.:)

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.
