What are the readings? How old is the tank. Did you take the ammonia and nitrate tests as well?

Ok, if you can't go out and buy a product, the best thing for you to do is a partial water change (pwc)

Has he shown you how to use the dechlorinator/tap water conditioner? What type of fish are in it?
