I had put the filter bag in the display tank for 2 weeks and then ran it in the QT with water from the display tank for another week. Figured it would be good to go. Guess it just now cycling and I am getting those spikes as in a new tank. As I said, I did a 25% water change this morning and will follow on your advise a 50% change when I get back home from work tonight. I did prepared some water because I knew I had to do a major water change on that little tank. You think two clowns and 1 purple dotty is too much for a 10 gal? Maybe I should step it up to a 20 cause my plan calls for a blue hippo or a yellow tang next.

With those numbers, I'd do a 75% WC tomorrow, and 50% every day until those numbers are gone. How long has the QT been up and running? Is it cycled? Or are we talking about just adding to many fish at one time to a tank?
