HELP!
What should I do?
My ammonia is at four and my pH dropped from 7.6 to 6.8
My nitrite is 0
Nitrates are five
The tank has 9 guppies, 3 cories, and one mystery fry
It is a 10 gal
I just did a 50% water change to bring it down as much as possible
The only thing I recently added was a large piece of driftwood
The only thing I recently removed was a lyretail Molly
The fish are all fine for now
The smallest fish in the main tank is 1 inch long
My fry is in a breeder trap
I was thinking of adding filter floss, zeolite, and a sponge to the filter and also adding 3 small ghost shrimp to clean up some fish waste since every little bit helps
I'll remove the ghosts to my 90 as soon as it gets up and going and cycled

First off, don't touch the filter. You will need to do back to back water changes to bring it down then check every day. If ammonia is .25ppm or more do water changes to bring it down.
Are you site you remembered dechlorinator? You haven't touched the filter? Done a large gravel vac?

I don't do huge gravel vacs
I never EVER touch my filter
And I use prime dechlor
