Hey there all. I recently nought new fish for my newly cycled tank. Tank was ran for about 2 months. Ammo:0 Nitrate/nitrite:0 ph: 7.0.
I currently bought a pair of rams for my 20 gallon tank. The next day I did a water test and it showed ammonia: 1ppm, nitrite:.25ppm Nitrate:0ppm, Ph 7.2. I was wondering if my rams would be ok in this? I'm currently adding plants to help stop this. Any ideas and help appreciated.

Rams are especially sensitive to ammonia and nitrites. Do you have a mature tank that you can borrow some gravel and or filter media?

No. I added some Amequel or however you spell it into the water to make them go down. And it kinda worked.
