    Question Ammonia is .50-1.0 out of the tap


    0 Not allowed!
    I tested my water right out of the tap and its .50 id say maybe even 1.0ppm so how do I keep amm down with water changes when its in the tap water?

    That should be from the chlorine. A dechlorinator will take care of it. Even afterwards you might see it in your tests but it will be a harmless in the form of ammonium.

    first thing to consider is to use prime. it will detoxify the ammonia and break the chloramine bonds. i think your local water is using chloramine instead of chlorine because of the ammonia. you should be fine with that.

    how i under stand it, it converts the ammonia into less toxic ammonium (sp?). this is still used by the bb and is less harmful to the fish. a few hours should clean the ammonium.

    when you have a cycled filter, 0.5ppm of ammonia will be processed in no time. Although using prime is also a better idea to break up the chloramines in your water source.

    Learn to give and take. That's how things should always work.

    I agree with the Prime. And I would double dose it. Ammonia found to be in tap water is often not the chlorine but the chloramines. And it's harder to break down the chloramines than the chlorine.

    By the way, Seachem sells a test kit that tells apart ammonia and fixed ammonia. Could help (if it is all 'fixed ammonia' then most likely just chloramines.)
