  1. Aquarium Water PH 7.4 Ammonia .25 Nitrites 0 Nitrates 4ppm Tap Water PH 7.4 Ammonia 0 Nitrates 0 Nitrates 0 Have to get a KH test then. As far as the food I can try it. We had been doing 1/4 tsp flakes twice a day, defrosted brine shrimp and seaweed as vitamin additives once a week each. We skipped the brine shrimp and seaweed last week. Just an update. We have been doing a partial change every evening and adding prime every other day. Have been putting stability in every day. We also changed the media in the C3 Fluval from the Carbon/Ammonia mixed to the Ammonia only removing media. Tonight we have levels of .5 ammonia. Any helpful thoughts as more of the comet's tail's veins are turning red and we had been close to .25 for a couple days. Concerned a bit tonight. As far as the food I can try it.

  2. Thanks for responding. We tested our tap water which runs through a PUR filter and there is no ammonia present. We let a bowl of water sit for 24 hours still no ammonia. The tank has been running since October 11th. We bought Prime last night and used it once this morning and twice today.
  3. We are having a serious problem controlling the ammonia in our tank. We have 2 five inch goldfish in a 37 gallon aquarium. We use a Fluval C3 five stage filtration external filter for up to 50 gallons. We had been using the Carbon/Ammonia controlling bag media but we have the pure ammonia controlling bags coming. We perform a 20% water change ( about 8 Gallons) as needed which we almost have to do every couple days due to ammonia. When we do we use tap water filtered through a PUR filter and add Tetra Aquasafe. We also add Tetra Easy Balance and Tetra Safe start when we do. I feed them a quarter teaspoon of Tetra Flakes twice a day. I also give them a small cube of frozen brine shrimp (once defrosted) once a week and a small bit of seaweed once a week. Our nitrites are at 0 and nitrates are 5ppm controlled but our ammonia is always .25 and .5ppm. The ph is 7.4. We bought some Seachem Stability and Prime tonight to try and see if it helps. Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated as we are worried and don’t know what to do.
