Hi I've just ran another test and I have high ammonia and nitrite, earlier it was fine and I've never had this problem before! I just ordered some AmQuel+ to lower it! Will the fish eventually die?

If you have fish that tolerate tonic salt then adding that would be a good move to kill infection

Tonic salt? How would I find out if they tolerate it?

Yeah its salt for aquariums a bit like rock salt very cheap and very useful in aquariums. Most tolerate it. Some thrive with it. But it defo works on killing bacteria same as in humans usually a quick google will tell you. Clown loaches and corydoras arent to keen but ive used it with guppies tetras mollies etc in the past.
