Thanks for your response. I have 7 angelfish and 2 silver dollars in there. I had a 30 gal. tank with them in there for 2 years and never did I have a single problem. Then I bought a 55 gal. tank and all of the sudden my fish are not eating and 2 died. So I was told that the ammonia was the reason for them diying.So I had check the ammonia and it read 6 so I then hurried and did a 50% water change with ammo lock added to the tank.Now my ammonia level is around 1 but i'm worried that its going to rise again.Question is if I contineu to do daily water changes of 20%, will this have an effect on the cycling of the tank and how long will this continue? My ph level is around 6.8. Also is there something to remove the ammonia instead of doing water changes? Thanks a million for this help!!!
it wasn't the ammonia it was my giant fattness that killed them JK ;D ya u should probably do a daily water chang of 20% like u said. hope that I supplied u with good info > ;D 8) ??? : :-[ :-X :-\ :-* :'( Why am I fat>.
Your daily water changes to keep the ammonia from becoming toxic will probably slow your cycle down, but it will reduce the stress on your fish. Just keep tabs on your ammonia and nitrite readings, and when they get too high, do a water change.
