0,5 mg/l nh3/nh4 and 5 mg/l no2 is in my rotifer culture.

Is this bad for my rotifers ?

What are you feeding them? How often are you doing a water change?

The no2 i wouldnt worry about but the ammonia i would.

How often do you do a water change?

I feed rgcomplete which has an ammonia detox in the food which keeps ammonia levels in check, along with doing a 25% water change every 3 days.

You might wanna look into something like clorAm-x for an ammonia detox.
