How many Goldfish

  1. Hello to all! I've been looking around these forums for a while now and have found some great info within the threads. First time post so my apologies if I forget to supply any vital info....... I have a 29 gallon tank that I set up a few weeks (3) ago and read all about the nitrogen cycle and how it works. After reading about this I decided to add a couple of danios to get the cycle going and have been monitoring the ammonia, nitrite, nitrate and ph levels daily. I used tap water treated with seachem prime in the tank. The first week or so, the ammonia levels went up and I kept them in check with water changes, after the nirites started showing up the ammonia has been steady between .25 and sometimes a little higher but below .50ppm. The nitrites shot up to about 2.0 and I brought it down with water changes between 25-50%. Just yesterday my nitrite levels were very high at about 4.0ppm and I asked the guy at the pet super market nearby and he said i was probably feeding the fish too much so I did another water change about 80% and used a siphon vacuum to remove most of the food that was inbetween the gravel in the tank. When doin this I found a dead danio stuck behind a bubble wand that I have in there and it seemed to have been dead for a little bit. (poor little guy , So I thought he might the culprit for such high levels of nitrite and figured the levels would fall after the water change and removing the little danio. that was last night and upon checking the water this morning the nitrites are back up to 2.0+. I fear that these little guys are under too much stress and will perish...... I was hoping that I could get some input as to what might bring the nitrite levels up so rapidly, I have been doing almost daily water changes to keep levels down but I'm afraid that I cant keep up! any info or advice would be greatly appreciated! The ph in the tank has been steady at 7.6 nitrates are reading at 5.0 ppm and carbonate hardness is at 70ppm I have to power filters equal to 350gph combined and a bubble wand and disc with larger sized gravel and a couple of beach pebbles bought at lowes just scattered around the tank. thanks for any advice or info! have a great day! Roger
