Hi Any Brother out there, I have been puzzled by the water parameters of my green water. Hope someone can help to solve this mystery. I kept 2 Junior Tosai and 1 Black butterfly in a 3.5 X 2.5 X 1 ft blue tub with green water and a sponge filter (3 weeks liao). I change the water on 31 Dec 2005 (90%), today 2 jan 06, just out of curiosity I measured the water parameter and to my horror here's what I get...

Ammonia = 4 ppm
Nitrite = 4 ppm
Nitrate = 5 ppm
pH = 6.6

Is this normal? Any suggestion what went wrong? Need some advice, thinking of switching back to blue water.
Thank You any Bro/Sis for helping.
