I just received my test kit and i tested my tap water for pH and it's around 6 to 6.4 i do beleive that goldfish would not like that.... ?

Also i tested for Ammonia in my tap water = 0 (i guess it normal heheh) and then i added 1 drop of the aqua ammonia that a guy made for me.

It reached 8+ ppm , i'm just trying to figure out a way to calculate the % of ammonia in that water, anyone has an idea ?

Thx

Keep pH above 7.2 at least. It's acidic at below 7. Not suitable for goldies long term as it causes sloughing of slime coat.

I'd retest the ammonia again after a few hours. Did you do a test as soon as ammonia was added?

The thing that i've done was to test the Water (tap water not aquarium) for Ammonia and of course it was 0 but then i added 1 drop (to that test tube) of the Ammonia Mix that the person made for me... i guess that the solution is strong but i was trying to figure out how strong.

Did some new test.

Temp: ~78F

Tap water: pH ~6.2

Over night after adding Coral: ~7.4

I've added 2cc of Ammonia Solution to the water and will test is out later on.

I will add results and maybe some picture.

Later all
