So I recently got a tuxedo guppy and a fancy guppy.
So my first issue is with the tuxedo guppy, I noticed the second day I had him that his tail was ripped. I brushed it off, maybe he just ripped it on something. However, this morning, about 4 days into having him, he has a small chunk out of his tail. Should I be worried or concerned?
My second concern is that my
ammonia levels seem to be testing high, it's a strip test and it's claiming the ammonia levels are "harmful" or "dangerous."
All other chemicals are fine and safe, it's just the ammonia.
I did a 30% water change to see if it would help.
The only chemical I put in the water was Stresscoat, a very small amount since I have a small tank.

Any help will be appreciated! I don't want them to get sick or anything. They seem fine, even with the high levels of ammonia! They're swimming, and playing with my bubbler.
