I've added a water conditioner that removes nitrate, nitrite, and ammonia. But my fish don't seem to be doing any better. Have I done everything I can do and some might might it and some might not? Or is there something else I can do.
What was the water conditioner you used? "Prime" is the only one I know of that will detoxify ammonia and nitrite. If it is Prime you're using, I definately recommend you continue to use it, and like the other posts above, that you step up the water changes. Also be aware that Prime's detoxifying effects are temporary. (about 24 hours)
