Do not wash your filter media in tap water. This kills the "good" bacteria that are apart of a healthy tank's cycle. Take the water out of the tank for the water change and put in a big bucket. Use that water to rinse your filter media with. Your hand will get dirty, but your fish will live.
Hi guys it the lady with ammonia problem we have treated tank put the ammonia remover carbon in filter done another water change got up this morning water still the same and we have lost a silver shark and two spotted Loches we are starting to panic now as we don't want to lose any more fish HELP
There might be a lot of ammonia in your tank, that comes from fish waste and extra uneaten food.when you pour water in the waste floating around will make your water foggy and ammonia can kill fish. so clean your gravel out and check for diseases, if there is one use melafix.
