Ammonia Spike!

Recommended Posts

Lezoh

Hey guys,

 

Would like to find out if i put plants into my guppy tank, would it lower my ammonia a bit? im constantly doing 50% water changes nearly every two days as it spikes back up. 

Was wondering if i put my tank full of plants, would it help my tank water ammonia?

Have you cycled your tank properly? You shouldn't be having constant ammonia spikes. What are your other water parameters, nitrites , nitrates? You are also having ph problems is that in the same tank ?

What Ineke said.

Make sure your tank is properly cycled.

But if you are in the middle of cycling your tank and want some plants to help reduce the ammonia, then duckweed is very good at it, as is water lettuce (Pistia stratiotes).
