I seen a post like this over the summer. It ended up being the decorations. Is the pumpkin and gravestone new?
I really wish it was only the decor...but 0 nitrites and nitrates, on an 8ppm ammonia doesn't bode well on the bacteria side of things.

@Momgoose56 do you remember the girl over the summer with 8 ammonia? Didn't it end up being her haunted house decor? I can't find the thread. I don't remember if that was it either.

I remember that. But I don't think that's the issue in this case. This tank isn't cycled, at all.

It is the biggest buck I have to condition water in. I bought it a few weeks ago the one on the pic is only used for clean water and I have a second one for dirty water

So, you put a dechlorinator in your water before you put it in your tank, right?

I'm not sure what you're asking? Do you have a filter on your tank that's already big enough?

More filtration is always better but not necessary if the one you have will filter 275 gallons per hour or more already. You could get some ceramic biomedia and a mesh media bag and add that to your existing filter overflow chamber and that would help though.

That sounds good. The ceramic media provides a huge amount of surface area for the good bacteria to attach to.

Did you do the 90% water change??

Okay, what is your ammonia level now?
Not home will check when I get back

ppm ammonia still high

Momgoose56 said:
When you're done with the 90% water change, let the tank run for about 30 minutes then retest your ammonia level and post your results here. Okay?
Ok my water is 0 nitrate 0 nitrite 7 pH and 2 ppm ammonia still high

Okay, go on and dose seachem prime at double dose. that's 10ml per 50gal if i remember. Let it circulate in your tank for maybe 10mins before dosing tetra safestart. As for the safestart, read the instructions for dosing, i honestly dont know how much to use since i never used them before..
