Will this work
I honestly would not use chemicals to lower ammonia and nitrites, water changes are better. I feel like a lot of those chemicals end up messing up the cycle even more.
You also need to find out if your tap has ammonia. If it does, you may need to use a chemical if that is what you bought. I would just wait until you run out of the other dechlorinator you have and get Prime next time.
Ok So my pleco died unfortunately and I wiped him with a towel and we’re the red is it look like he was bleeding is this ammonia posing
Was it from its gills?
No it’s right in the back not on the fin
Then it was your crayfish.
Nope not that They have not been in contact I think I have ammonia prombles is that maked him bleed he did not lose scales or anything my other fish is like that too I mean 7 fish died and they were all had red on them
And not from the gills?
Those poor fish. Did you get the test so you can let us know the ammonia results? Could it be septicemia? I'm not super familiar with it.
No unfortunately but I got ammonia reducer and I ian pretty sure it’s not septicemia I am younger and can’t do these things fast
Oh. Your profile says your 40, not that age really has anything to do with this issue. I guess just keep up on the daily 75% water changes. It's hard to help sometimes when we don't know if it's a water quality issue or an illness.
Alright I will do that!
Really sorry to hear things aren't getting better. If you're doing 75% water changes a day and still have fish dying then you MAY have a bacterial infection spreading through the tank. It's too bad you didn't get some test strips as it would be good to actually know the water parameters. When you get these problems you eliminate one thing and move on to the next. Right now, though, we still don't KNOW the water is good, which is frustrating, but with so much water changed, unless you're massively overfeeding or never cleaned the waste from the gravel, it's hard to imagine the tank generating that much ammonia or nitrite. If you're young you may have difficulty doing things quickly, but the weekend is coming so maybe you can get some sympathetic adult help (promises of washed cars and raked leaves sometimes help sweeten the deal)- one trip to the store to get test strips, and if the water is good maybe another to get antibiotics (I know you likely don't want to get both on one trip as money can be tight when young.)
Maybe country max or somwere else has them
A local fish store should be able to test your water, call around and see if any in your area does. They just need a cup of tank water. Good luck
Haha that’s funny lucky I won a lottery ticket and got 10 dollars that I can put twards it So far no fish died or have red on them Alright thanks they all seem fine but the pleco eyes are a tiny bit cloudy I also noticed that his eye crayfish is a little red but he seems fine will he be alright or the camera makes it look worse he right one I don’t know what happened
There my main concern
His eye looks better
