I got my new tank set up and all is doing well. I figure it was ammonium not ammonia because I have a very low ph, around 6.7, and I think I found the source of it after I cleaned everything out and was washing stuff to put into the new tank. There was a little pottery cup I had in with them and it smelled like ammonia. That might be weird to say but I sware it did. I took the tank back to petsmart too and they said that they have had ppl bring those tanks back saying the same thing. The five gallon is looking great doing a small wc on it today. All of my reading are perfect but will be testing again tomorrow
Also not using ferts causebits my shrimp tank.
Wow! That was unexpected.
