Hi there! Welcome to koko's! :)

It would be very helpful to get readings for some of the info on the list that are currently blank so that our more experienced members can help you best.

Can you get exact numbers for nitrite, nitrate, and ph? Most fish stores will do this for you for free if you do not have access to a test kit for these things.

Also, is there any way you can provide a picture or video for what is going on? That would be very helpful as well! :) thanks!
