Ammonia nitrate nitrite fish

Common Questions and Answers about Ammonia nitrate nitrite fish


Avatar n tn All the fish were doing fine up until 3 weeks ago when my tiger barbs started dying. Ammonia, Nitrate, and Nitrite levels are all 0. Ph and water temperature are fine. I have tried a broad spectrum medicine, parasite tablets, and bacteria medication. Every week I do a 10-15% water change and every 5 weeks I do a 20% water change and vacuum the gravel. So far I have lost 7 tiger barbs and 1 algae eater. Currently in the tank I have 3 mollies and an algae eater.
Avatar n tn what are the amonia levels? a new tank is bound to have high ammonia levels and not much nitrite or nitrate yet. Keep feedings light-once daily and only 1 or 2 flakes or pellets per fish.
