I would add one full dose of Amquel plus (detoxify ammonia and nitrite) + add some peat to your filter. You probably have a high level of HCO3- (hihg KH) so peat will also help soften the water. Black water extract will do too.Mr.P said:Ammonia is 3 mg/L and ph is 7.8. How can I lower them. It might be a good idea to mention I'm still kinda cycling my tank. Been probably 2 weeks now.
