I have two fully cycled tanks (55 gallon and 29gallon) I do about a 20 to 25% water change weekly, and I check my water about every three days. each aren't fully stocked so no need for a larger water change.
I waited a little longer than a week this time to do a water change, I changed about 30% of my water this morning, went out and about three hours later checked my water to see my Ammonia was at 2 ppm
So the first thing I did is check my tap water and of course its at 2 ppm
of Ammonia, which is new.
I always use Seachem Prime when doing water changes and I go a little heavy on it and I know detoxifies ammonia for roughly 24 hours maybe longer by that time my tank should cycle the ammonia.
I know this isn't great for my fish, any suggestions, should I do water changes (larger ones) every two weeks to avoid exposure to the ammonia? Or should I just continue to do water changes as scheduled and make sure I use the Prime?
I am going to also reach out to the local utility district to see what happened. All I can say is thank goodness I use Prime and use it a little heavy.
