  1. I think my tank cycle has crashed Ammonia raising Well I will list all the stuff I did on my last water change on Friday I did a 60% water change 1) Added NovAqua Plus water conditioner 2) Added Amquel Plus 3) Added Fish Protector 4) Ph Buffer 7.5 I did use different water for the first time but I tested it before I use it and the PH was 7.6, High range Ph 7.4, Ammonia 0ppm, Nitrite 0ppm, Nitrates 5ppm. The GH and KH was very low but I didn't think that would be to much of a problem I just have very high nitrates (40ppm) in my water that I wanted to try other water to lower my nitrates. I didn't change anything in my filter because I did it last week (friday) but when I do a water change I turn off the filter and the water drains out and normally put my media(foam sponge, Matrix Bio media) in tank water to keep the BB. But I forgot to take them out. How long can your BB live without water? I also added Crushed coral for the first time to my filter to help with my Ph since I was using water with very low GH and KH I didn't want my low KH to crash my Ph. I also added Bio - Max for the first time for more BB to grow because I found out a way too actually fit it in my filter. I added some goldfish marbles and I also add 3 small bowl to put crush coral for my snails Goldfish marbles Yesterday i notice one of my fish bottom sitting and didn't seem him self. So i tested my water and had Ammonia of 1.0 ppm. I add Amquel Plus and change my media bag with Ammonia Neutralizing Crystals. So it seem like the ammonia is going down. But what cause my ammonia to go up in the first place? My current tank permeters Ph 7.6 High Range Ph 7.4 Ammonia 0.50 ppm Nitrite 0 ppm Nitrate 20 - 40 ppm My water does seem cloudy too. Right now water change will be difficult when my water is frozen and my sink water is going to my bath tub. Yes I can clean my fish tank with simple gravel siphon and a pail. But I would have to get 5 to 6 jag of water (18L each) to fill my tank when I do about 50-60% water Change.
