I was given a 5 gallon tank with 4 feeder goldfish . I learnt that it wasn't sufficient space so I bought a 29 gallon tank . After 4 days of adding safestart beneficial bacter I moved the golffish over . The goldfish all got ammonia poisoning so I had to return them to their original tank . They are fine now but they are still crowded. My girlfriend bought me a water heater and added 2 one inch pink kissers .
I thought I could let the pink kisser be an ammonia source and cycle it for me since I didn't have the heart to return the fish to my girlfriend.
I been monitoring both tanks daily and doing water change s to keep the ammonia under 2 ppm
. After 3 weeks I have very high ammonia levels and I been doing water changes every 2 days . zero nitrites !!!!zero nitrates !! Shouldn't I have some bacteria yet ? Please with possible solutions
And as for the goldfish I m starting a fishless cycle on a 20 long tank for the crowded goldfish .
