Hey, so it’s been a while. Last week I was super stressed out with finals and forgot about my Axolotls water change. So, I did the water test today and the ammonia was at 8ppm? Naturally I freaked out and rushed into a rather large water change and found a bunch of hidden dirt and poop particles in a plant in her tank. She’s acting normal and eating and swimming around like she normally does, which makes me think it wasn’t high for long. She seems totally fine, all her parameters are good now after 2 water changes. First I did a roughly 50%-70% water change, saw the ammonia was still at 1.00-2ppm and did another 15% water change. She’s currently begging for worms as normal, no ammonia burns I can see and her gills are normal and healthy. I cleared out all the dirt and feel bad, it was totally my mistake. I’m going on vacation in a couple of days, will everything be okay? I’ll probably do another water change the day before we leave.
