    Amonia levels are high. "When amonia goes up, nitrates(helpful bacteria) go down, when you do water changes it goes the other way around" Remember that.

  • somethings is wrong with the water, either it is too warm, or something else. check ph. always check the water sample and ask them how much salt they use. also what chemicals they use in the water. fish should be slowly introduced to new tanks if you do not have similar conditions as the pet store you get your fish.
