Questions about a long established tank
So I set up my 40gal long tank last year, and brought with it plants and fish and media from my 20gal long that had already been cycled. My plants have been doing great, but my snails have been dying quite a bit. So I stopped testing way back and just decided to do it tonight since my snails have been dying. I got some weird readings....
0 ppm Nitrite (yay!)
40 ppm Nitrate
.50 ppm Ammonia
I have a number of amazon swords and some moss that grows like crazy, and my fish seem to be alright. I have black mollies, a betta, a school of neon tetra and some emerald corys. I might have been overfeeding, but I'm concerned about everybody getting theirs lol.
But it seems my ph is too low and my nitrates are too high. my ammonia is looking suspicious too. Anybody know what might be causing this, and how I can reverse it?
