Exclamation Advice NEEDED!!!!

Help!!! There is ammonia poisoning in my tank and my goldfish eats the pellets and spits them out after one or two minutes. Happens to only some of my goldfish like two. What is going on? Is it an internal parasite or just side effects of ammonia poisoning?

How much ammonia do you have?

Also dont rely on adding stuff to remove ammonia. The only way to remove ammonia is water changes and your cycle.

But why is two of my fish eating and then spitting it back out after a miute? Is that related to ammonia poisoning? Because it didn't happen to any other fishes.

We dont even know that you are suffering from ammonia poisoning. At typical pH values It takes a lot of ammonia before it becomes hazardous to a fishes health. What kind of levels of ammonia are you seeing and what is your pH?
