Kudos to you for trying your best to help
These fish!! I know absolutely nothing about predator fish, but with all the stress that your fish have been through and the fact that you have ammonia in your water, I'd get some Prime while you're at the store tomorrow and add that to the water. That's just what I'd do. Good luck!!

Never said not to get it, even if it's off by .010 it wouldn't do as much harm as ammonia. I said to get it after the liquid test which is much much more important.

don't make the same mistake i did and get cheap trash cans. Buy the "Brute" trash cans right off the bat and save yourself some headache

That tank is AMAZING! I'm with everyone here and super excited to see how this turns out. Major kuddos to you for doing what you need to do to make sure these fish are cared for properly!
