I just used some bio spira yesterday in what's going to be my new shrimp tank (3.5 gal). Shockingly, what normally would have been a reading of 2-1 ppm of ammonia (city water reading), it came back as .25 ppm. I'm not going to automatically think that it was the biospira alone. Other things could have contributed to this. I did let the bottle of water I use for water changes sit out open to have the ammonia off gas before using it, I used decorations from their previous tank and transferred it into the tank right away so that way, if any bio film formed, it would still be in there. Not to mention three moss balls are in this tank but last I checked, moss balls don't remove that amount of ammonia that fast. I'm just surprised. Of course, all factors could contribute. So... any ideas?
