ill Danio?


This is my first time keeping fish for years, I currently have 4 danios in a 28l/ 5 gallon tank. I know this is too small for them (didn't know when we got them though), I bought a 125l the other week I'm just waiting on getting a filter and obviously the tank to cycle afterwards. I also know about keeping 6 or more but don't want to add anymore to the smaller tank.

Anyways! I've had high ammonia levels which I'm currently trying to get under control, I wouldn't be able to say the reading as the pet store tested it for us. One of my danios has a red/ pink bum which came yesterday but I'm unsure if this is linked to the ammonia problem? He doesn't appear to have anything else wrong with him apart from that and the red gills they all have (caused by the ammonia?) Is there anything I can do for him? I did a 40% water change on Saturday and did a 30ish% water change today (Tuesday). I've also only fed them a few pellets to try and minimise the ammonia being added.

Any help would be appreciated
