Emergency! Root tabs causing Ammonia spike???!!
I was trying to figure out why my plants were turning to mush and after some help here, it was suggested by several people that I use root tabs to fertilize. I used a small number of root tabs but perhaps I didn’t bury them deep enough? So now my ammonia is spiking. A shrimp died. I’ve done a 50% water change and vacuumed up as much of the pellets as possible. But the ammonia is still there! I’m using seachem prime to try to get rid of the ammonia. So far the tests are still showing the same amount of ammonia... could it be that the prime detoxifies ammonia but it’s still showing up in the test? I need HELP!!!
