Using Chemicals to Remove or Neutralize Ammonia in a Fish Tank
AmmoSorb™ Fish Tank Ammonia Removal Granules eliminates toxic ammonia, the #1 killer of fish. This also reduces stress & disease in fish.
the 3rd day the new fish and snail were all dead in the morning. I thought it was just from that particular store, but the next day another fish died. My husband decided to go buy the water testing kits for ammonia and ph. We never had to use them before, the goldfish were always fine. Anyway the ammonia level was 4.0. We immediately did a 50 percent water change and the level did not change at all. My husband bought Ammo Lock, which made the water smell like urine. It was horrible. Last Friday we did an 80 percent water change, and the ammonia level was 2.0. Now this morning a few of the danios weren't coming to eat, so I did a 95 percent water change. I just checked the ammonia level and it is still at 2.0. I just don't understand where this spike is coming from. Should I remove the fish and scrub the whole tank clean? Is is possible for the ammonia to be on the glass, or somewhere else in the tank besides the water? I am at wits end, and don't want to lose any more if my little cuties. Any info you can give me will be greatly appreciated.
Do NOT use this please!!! It has tons of chemicals that shouldn’t be used on humans specially babies genitals!! You might as well use sposies… rinse rinse rinse like crazy and do your normal wash routine! This can be extremely dangerous and you never know what doea chemicals might do in the future… cancer? Could be! So please please stop the fish tank ammonia remover and leave it for the fish 🙂
