well measured the tank tonight
ammonia between 0.25-0.5 ppm (a little more towards the 0.5ppm)
tap water ammonia was actually more than 1ppm. I wonder if this is normal for our area, looks like the seachem stabilty is lowering the ammonia in the tank and I am at the beginning of the cycle still.
Also looks like we are going to lose the first zebra, should I take the fish out or leave it to speed up the cycle?

To be honest with you, I've never had to deal with lowering ammoina in your water supply when it's already a approx 1 PPM. Short of water changes with distilled water, I'm at a loss here. I've always tried to shy away from using chemicals so I really don't know a lot about them
Hopfully another member who knows more can offer some suggestionsIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
