    Unsure about fish

    I've only been doing 50% water changes as most days the ammonia won't even show up (doing the liquid tests). The 0.25 reading was after having to leave it from Friday night to Sunday night.

    Hello all, Quick background, I'm relatively new to fish ownership, but after seeing the conditions of a local summer camp "science project" I feel like I had to do something.
