ammonia

Hi everyone, I have a problem. I did a 25% pwc change today and tested my water with the api test a few hours later. When I checked the ammonia, I noticed it was 1.0 ppm. Am I able to do another pwc change today or should I wait 24 hrs so I don't stress the fish out more?

You can go ahead and do another 25% water change right now. In the future I would do a larger water change such as 50%. That way you wouldnt have to another one as soon. A 75% water change would be best, and would not stress out your fish.

Thank you. I just checked my ammonia again and It's still 1.0ppm. Going to do a big pwc. Hopefully that works
