Help fast, power outage, ammonia spike, fish in trouble
So last night someone hit a tele pole and my power was out for an unknown amount of time.
I came in this morning (sat morning) and found the tank cloudy and all the fish at the top, I did a 75% water change, and dosed the tank with 3x the recommended prime (as the bottle says). for the rest of today the fish seemed fine. The ammonia read about 3 on the test strip.
I go to check on them about an hour ago, and I lost 2 angels, a couple other fish and the ammonia is HIGHER than it was this morning! It was about 4-5 with the test strips!!
Did my filter die out and is poisoning the tank??? I just cleaned it and I'm doing a 90% water change.... what else can i do??
Its a 125g, medium stock of plants and fish. I temp moved the angels and all the other fish I could catch into a 10g and a 55g but I can't catch my 15 cory cats or my ottos and loaches. What do I need to do??
