Hello Everyone. I’m very new to this hobby, have only had my 13 gallon Aqueon tank set up for about 6 weeks. I originally intended on having a Betta, a few decorations, nothing fancy. But of course, YouTube and various websites peaked my obsession, so I went and got myself some fancy male guppies (5 of them), 2 Cory Catfish, and 3 red cherry shrimp. I even got shipped 2 mystery snails on accident (is order some narrow leaf sword plants, but they told me to just keep the snails). The ammonia has been high for a few weeks now. I’ve done water changes, and I’ve started adding more plants. The fish seem fine, but I just lost the final shrimp today. Originally had 3 Cory cats, 1 died the day after I got them. The ammonia always tests high with the API test kit (dark green). I use Prime and API water conditioner when doing water changes. And started using AMMO LOCK. The ammonia just won’t come down. Suggestions? I don’t want to kill anything else!
