Sharelleshobbies Posted March 27, 2022 Share Posted March 27, 2022 Hey there! I’m new. We just got a new tank- it’s 36 gallons. We don’t have any fish yet, but we have a few plants. I just tested my water and was surprised to find .50 ppm ammonia. What do I do with this information? I’ve watched loads of videos, joined the YouTube membership- but I’m just not sure what to do when my levels are up in any of the tests while ‘cycling’. I’m assuming I do a water change? 25%? Or more? Here are the levels of my *tank (after a couple days started with API Quick Start and API Stress Coat Water Conditioner, and Easy Green + root tabs): ph 7.4 Ammonia .50 ppm nitrite 0 nitrate 0 this is our tap water: ph 7.4 Ammonia 0 nitrite 0 nitrate 0 *we have aquarium gravel and plant substrate too If you have a ‘for dummies’ link for what to do about different levels- that would be great as well. thanks for your patience as I learn this new hobby ☺️ 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
