Started out with a bag of carnival goldfish my son-in-law brought home for the grand kids. 4 years later we have 1 left that has out grown 2 fish tanks. We added 2 Lionhead Goldfish and 1 has survived. The common and the lionhead have survived together for 4 yrs now. The common is too big for the 25 gallon tank so I bought a used 55 gallon tank with a Fluval 306 cannister.
I'm in uncharted territories as far as setting up a larger tank with a cannister filter. Been on You Tube a lot in the last couple of days!! Decided to join up here and get some opinions before I put my 2 gold fish in the new tank.
Started up the tank last Sunday and have been letting it run for almost a week now. Added 2 1 oz. bottles of Turbo start freshwater 700. Added some aqua plus too. Also added about 25% of water from the 25 gallon tank. PH level is 7.2, Nitrate level is 15 ppm
. The ammonia level 2.0 ppm
.What do I need to add to lower the ammonia ppm
level? 0 ppm
would be ideal!
