Hi Everyone, I'm new to posting on Koko's, this is my second thread. My first being an emergency as my goldfish got caught in the intake tube Anyway I wanted to check my water change prep with you guys .I recently moved to a new house and I now have 0.5 ppm ammonia in my tap water. (I know its a nightmare) I checked with both a test kit and I *finally* got through to the utility people, I was previously thought it was 0.25ppm so this leads me to my water question. I use Seachem prime as my water conditioner. I would normally use 3.5ml to treat 126L of water but now as my water contains 0.5 ppm anyway I should double this dose every time I do a water change right? Also Seachem do state that it is 5ml per 200L of 'new water' but I have always added enough Prime to treat my whole tank, do you do the same or do you just treat your new water for your water change? Also has there ever been reports of fish having any problems relating to overdosing with Prime? Other tap parameters just in case: pH: 7.8 Nitrite: 0 ppm Nitrate:0 ppm
