    Complete a large water change.

    If you are cycling with fish, you need to keep the nitrite levels at or below 0.25ppm

    If your current level is 1ppm, complete a 75% water change to drop it down to 0.25ppm

    How long have you been trying to cycle your tank ?
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    are you cycling with fish or fishless? the more info you give, the better someone can help you with a good answer.
    When in d0ubt read it until it makes sense, then read it again!

    Sorry. I've cycle with fish. Been cycle for a month and my NO2 stuck at 1ppm. Nh3 was 0 15g with one anglefish 2loaches 4guppy. I did a large water around 70%. But no2 still 1ppm

    When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.

    Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

    Did I read this right? Those fish are in a 15gal tank? What is your ammonia level? If nitrites aren't 0, your tank isn't cycled. And the angel doesn't belong in there (or the loaches I believe - what kind do you have?) - the tank is too small unfortunately.

    Yup I realized is too small for them. Have plan to give them to fish shop before I kill them. Ammonial level was 0ppm while nitrites was 1ppm. I did large water change once. Nitrites still 1ppm
