Hey Everyone!!! I need some help. I'm a new and frustrated fish owner. Unfortunately I belong to the group that did not educate themselves prior to owning an aquarium. Anyway, this is week two. I've lost two swardtales and have two mollies left. Mollies were quite happy just three days ago, and on Thursday the female had babies (I was stupid enough to get male and female and not to check if the female was pregnant). Now the adult fish are very lethargic, spending most time right below the surface of the water. (They don't gulp for air though) Turns out the ammonia levels are high, between 1 and 2. I've been changing water for past two days once a day (20 to 25%). Today changed 20% twice-morning and night. Still ammonia is pretty much the same. I also might have overfed the fish before. Now they have not been eating for the second day in a row. Do I continue with the water changes? How often is too often and how much is too much at a time? Any suggestions and advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
