Ammonia in Tap Water. How to fix??
So I have a 75 gallon freshwater tank and I do frequent water changes (twice a week). I have roughly 5 fish in there right now as well. Each time I do a water change the next day I will test the water. Every time I would test it...the test would show ammonia.
I finally tested the tap water and it has .25 ammonia in it...which is what my tank tests for everytime. I have a fluval 406 filter, it has been cycled, and it also does not ever test positive for nitrate/nitrites. My current bracket layout for my filter is the top 2 compartments are charcoal. The second tier has one ammonia bag and one clearmax. The rest are the bio-max etc for the bottom 4 tiers.
I also use seachem Prime everytime I do a water change. I will add water directly to tank and then dump 2 capfuls into tank (it treats 100 gallons with two capfuls).
My question is what can I do to remove the ammonia from the tap water? Is the seachem making the ammonia non toxic and I should not work about it? My fish do not show any signs of stress with .25 ammonia in it but I have read a lot that any level of ammonia is bad.
Thank you for the help!
