Rep: Theravie is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Is it safe?

Hello!
Mid August, I had a crazy ammonia spike in my 20reg tank for my Axolotl, so I tubbed him at once, and have been trying to cycle his tank ever sense. I finally got my hands on some sea chem stability and prime- so I did a partial water change the other day. I've been adding 'Stability" in the tank every day for five days, and I have been taking water tests with the full test kid, Nitrates- nitrites- ammonia- and Ph.
Before adding the 'Stability' I had crazy high ammonia-
Tuesday- Ammonia was high- nitrates were 0
Wednesday- Ammonia was low but still present- however my Ph was crazy low. I did a 45% water change.

Thursday- Ph went down but Ammonia went up.

Today, everything seems fine. What do you guys thing? Can I put my Axolotl back in his tank? He hates being in the tub and he's not eating well. Should I wait another day or so just to be safe or do you guys think it's ok now?Click the image to open in full size.\
Thanks for the help!

I think I'd wait one more day and see if it's stable, and then return him, and check it again daily to be sure. Good luck.
