This is my first real aquarium and I started my cycle five days ago. I've got a 5g tank and am planning on having a betta in it. I've got four marimo balls, two anubias, and a java fern as well which are in there now. I feel like I'm in a constant battle with the ammonia! I'm using the ACE janitorial strength ammonia and tried using TSS. The first time I put it in with a dechlorinator at the same time which I'm assuming killed it. The second time, today, I put it in and the ammonia levels were 4ppm -- which I then read online meant that the ammonia would kill the TSS. So I did a water change about two hours after adding it and got the ammonia back down to .25ppm. Is my TSS bacteria still going to be lingering, or would it still have been in the water column at that point? Should I get more? I'm planning on keeping ammonia levels at around 2ppm instead.
