Okay, so guppy has gone from not active to lethargic in his new tank. It is the third day in his new tank, water is supposed to be changed tomorrow but i have been monitoring the water.
My tap water is high PH (7.6) and ammonia (.25).
Last night the tank tested at 7.2ph and .25 ammonia.
This morning it is at 7.6 ph and .50 ammonia.
So it first dropped now it rose. I don't know why.
The tank gets cloudy during the day and turns clear overnight.
I am afraid of adding more chemicals as this will effect Guppy, but changing the water every day will not be good for him either.
I can see he is not happy because he is not active at all, and this morning he was not even interested in eating. He just sits in his cave at the bottom of the tank.
He has a heater that keeps his temperature steady at 82F. No filter. 2.5 gallon tank.
Is my tank trying to cycle itself even though I have no filter?
What should I do?
I don't understand what I am doing wrong. Please help
Should I do a 50% water change today or wait till tomorrow as I am supposed to?
