Hi all after cycling my tank for 2-3 weeks with very large amounts of seeded media and having the ammonia settle down to 0ppm for a few days and nitrate was steady at 5ppm I thought all was good and everything was stable. Then when I checked the levels this morning I found a HUGE spike straight to 4ppm ammonia(Ive never seen such levels b4) nitrates were still 5ppm ph steady at 8.0 I did a quick 25% water change to lower the ammonia with no change. So should I keep changing water daily to bring it down as the ammonia is very high?.....was my last water change to raise the ph effect something?.... they only get one feed a day which they consume in 10 seconds? any ideas? thanks Jay
