Hiy guys, does seachem flourish tabs affect ammonia in my fish tank? just added flourish tabs 3 days ago, before adding it my amo reading is 0, i did WC yesterday and tested the water today and i got a .25ppm reading. just wondering if the tabs are releasing some sort of chemicals that are affecting my ammonia

my tank is a 75gal planted(not heavy) community tank with 2 emperor 400 as filter.
i have 6 zebra danios
3 corys
8 guppies


another question, is my filtration adequate?

I doubt it. Nothing in the ingredient list suggests that it would.

Derived from: Potassium Chloride, Calcium Chloride, Copper Sulfate, Magnesium Chloride, Ferrous Gluconate, Cobalt Sulfate, Magnesium Sulfate, Manganese Sulfate, Boric Acid, Sodium Molybdate, Zinc Sulfate, Protein Hydrolysates.

Do you have chloramines in your tap water? That could be the source or decaying plant parts.

If you test your tap water with the ammonia kit, and you get an ammonia reading, then you have chloramines.

You don't need to increase the dosage of Prime.

Do you leave pieces of the plants in the tank? That will rot and turn into ammonia
