Just got my API kit and tested the ammonia levels in our city tap water-It ranges higher than 1 ppm! I also tested a bottle of Poland Spring water which 0ppm.
I just tested my smallest critter keeper that I did a 100% water change yesterday on and it reads between .25 ppm and 5 ppm.
Ph is 6
It has live floating plant (Hornwort and Duckweed)
I use Tetra Aqua Safe water conditioner.
I also have (but haven't used Prime)
At what level is ammonia harmful to fish?
I am wondering if the plants took the ammonia level down?
What to do?
I am currently cycling a ten gallon and it is reading betwen 4-8 ppm Ammonia (day 4)
