ToothlessTheGuppy Posted May 15 Share Posted May 15 Hello everyone! A few weeks ago, I started my first aquarium in 10 years. I moved some plants, snails, nitrifying bacteria (neo V, aquario), and finally, some fish - 5 guppies. Unfortunately, one of them developed ich. They were all from the same tank from the same shop. So I treated my aquarium with medication I got from my local fish shop and turn up the heater. But now, another problem has arisen. The ammonia level is higher than before - 0.05 ppm. I think it's probably because the medication killed all the beneficial bacteria. 😞 The medication contains brilliant green hydrochloride - 1 mg and malachite green hydrochloride - 4 mg. What should I do? If I dose another portion of bacteria, they'll probably die as well... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
