Disaster Averted: Ammonia Spike!

During the recent Blizzard I received a  frantic phone call from one of my clients saying that he had been image14stranded and unable to get home from his travels.  When he got home he found to his surprise all of his Cichlids were on top of the water gasping. 

imageI was able to talk him through the whole thing:

It turned out that a large Pleco died in a cave causing an Ammonia Spike. My client’s prized collection of fish were saved for a sure death!

    I have known Felix for what seems like a very long time and seen his work with fish grow exponentially. He is very capable of soling any fish problems. I think he is related to the sea GOD Poseidon.

    I called Felix at 10 pm worried that my fish have ick and I don’t know why to do. He calmed me down and explained in the most amazing detail exactly what’s going on in my tank and spent about and hour teaching me the in and out of the ciclid world. He is a true MASTER of his profession with knowledge that far exceeds the normal fish DR Felix you are truly amazing at what you do and I want to say thank you
