The day from Hell.. #1
Yesterday I cleaned myt Tank, and I was watching my Goldies and I look up and the Bigger ones yawning at me. I think "Oh s**t" and test it. Yup, the ammonias Super high, and my filters not working properly. *Sigh* So I Run and get some Tablets to drop it, Do twice the normal dose, (It says you can.) and then wait. I had already changed the water, 20%, Didn't want to stress them out too much.

I took the filter out, and Squeezed stuff from the other filter From my 40 gal. Into it. *Sigh* Thankfully, The levels are now fine again. I have to go to the petstore today and see if I can't get the Carbon Insert that goes in it- Because with out it, this filter is crap.

So the fish are fie, and happy, and none of them are dead. The live plants in there are thriving, but after that scare I may be picking up a few more just in case. *nods*

It's ok to do up to 50% water change if the ammonia levels are high. Glad your fish are OK how come the ammonia was so high?

Re: The day from Hell.. #4
The levels are fine now, Oddly. I added some stuff, and got Bacteria Boost. ill do a water change tomorrow before I go out of town But Im considering switching the Filter from the tropicals over to the Goldfish because The other tank is cycled and should be fine.. I dont know. *sigh*

But its fine now. I got a carbon insert for te Filter. I think its because there was a plant and it was dying and I missed a leaf or two because it floated to the back behind the Pots and plants *sigh* but Ill have my sister look after it. And I got Ammonia removier In case, And she knows how to add it.
