Quiet Neon?

My neons are hanging round the filter an awful lot they still have colour and all and look healthy but there near the top an awful lot too. About a week back I had a incident over the white spot but that is cured now. One night I found one poor fellow without a back fin!

Overall I think Ive had nine of them if not more. I now have three and I can't add any more because of ammonia problems. Is this the case? I have a 12 and a half gallon that has been running about two months. I have three healthy mollies which are all completely fine.

When I tested a few weeks back the ammonia was quite high bit since then Ive been doing a weekly water change, gravel clean, filter boosts every other day and cutting down on feeding. I would have imagined it would be better now.

I think one will pass in the next few days as its been doing all the same symptoms as the dead ones. Fingers crossed my toilet won't be doing that horrible flush in the next days!

If you have ammonia problems you should be changing water daily. How bad ammonia are we talking?
