RELIEF! Still having ammonia problems after laying MTS
My ammonia has been out of control since putting in the MTS. I have to do 2 daily water changes just to keep it at .25. I know there is nothing else that could be causing this. Everything else is exactly as it was before adding it and my tank was fully cycled. I do not overfeed my fish. I have 2 female bettas, 3 cories and an apple snail in a 12 gallon planted tank running a 150GPH Biowheel filter.
Oh, I also added DIY CO2 to try and keep the pH down. And for the plants of course.
So my question is, if I made the MTS layer too thick could that be what's causing this? I think it's about 2" thick with a 1" layer of the original gravel on top. I'm ready to stick the siphon down there and see if I can suck out some of the MTS.
