So i added three fish and 2 have died. I had amonia start showing but it was the slightest amount and it wont go away. Ive added bacteiria and amonia neutralizer but my gourami and my java are both at a loss of color. My gourami is just kinda sitting on the bottom of the tank and has not eatin in two days. He does occasionally swim to the top for a gulp of air but he seems to be suffering from the amonia.. please HELP??? I have no idea what to do to get this back on track. Its a 20 gallon tank with a 15w light PH is low to mid 7s.

Hi there and welcome to AA.
Can you tell me what are you using as your biological media meaning something to hold your good bacteria after it has been cycled and if you do have something already my suggestions would be To do some big water changes this will help reduce your ammonia also there is a product on the market You can get rid of ammonia to, but going back to basics it does sound like you haven't cycled your tank probably and is the main reason why you have ammonia.
