    Fish keep dying!!

    Ok, thank you so much to everyone who helped me. Hopefully this was the issue and the small water changes sort it all out

    Fish keep dying!!

    My old betta didn't get on well with my other fish but the one I have now barely even notices them. For the tanks, should I do lots of small water changes over the next few weeks or just a large one to change it to the hard water?

    Fish keep dying!!

    Oh most websites that I looked at said that they can be compatible but most aren't because of that reason so I presumed their parameters would be the same. I have 2 female guppies in the tank with him as I didn't want to mix them with the males in the other tank. I wasn't really expecting them...

    The water hardness of the bypass tap is hard- 104 Ca mg/l which is about 16 GH (270ppm). The only fish that I have that prefers soft water is my betta but he is compatible with guppies who like hard water? The pH of the hard water is still 7.6 so I think it might be best if I let the water sit...

    @AilyNC I've just googled and it says that it is not good for fish tanks. Would it be best for me to do a large water change in both tanks to correct this?

    Fish keep dying!!

    @AilyNC most of the fish look ok. I came back today and found that one of my endlers had died but I left early this morning so couldn't see if he had any symptoms. I haven't had an endler death for a few months so this could just be an odd one from old age or something. My ammonia, nitrite and...

    Fish keep dying!!

    Its ok this is still quite helpful as I've never really thought about it before so I'll need to check what my water is

    Fish keep dying!!

    @seangee it seems to only be the balloon mollies, possibly the corys and possibly the guppies dying in this way but I'm not sure which ones died from the ammonia poisoning. All of these fish have been really disorientated before their death and couldn't swim properly. My plecos and endlers...

    No, I've got aquatic plant soil underneath but that's it

    Fish keep dying!!

    I'm not sure what the pH was before but the 8.2 was about 24 hours after the water change. It was also 8.2 in my 5g tank and I did about a 15% water change for that last week. I'm not too worried about the pH of the smaller tank as they seem to be fine with it and there has been no changes to...

    Fish keep dying!!

    I have done a 60% water change yesterday. The API master test kit has arrived so I've tested my water and nitrate, nitrite, and ammonia levels are at 0 in both of my tanks but the pH is around 8.2. I never realised that it would be this high for both tanks as I've never had an issue with my...

    @AilyNC Same they are really interesting and all have different behaviours. My zebra pleco is a 4" so shouldn't grow much the only issue is that he hides all the time but I'm not sure if this is because he is relatively new to the tank so is still getting used to it or if that's just his...

    @BoomerXIV the 110 litre tank is a new tank that I got at the start of 2020 so I've had it set up for about 9 months. The 5 gallon tank has been set up since about April and when I got it I had a pregnant female guppy and decided to use the tank to keep the fry but now have 2 female and 2 male...

    Fish keep dying!!

    Thank you all for your advice. I'm going to do a water change and keep doing them over the next few weeks until it gets better. @AilyNC Tank size: 110 litres (24 gallons) pH: ammonia: 0? tested yesterday at lfs and he said it was good but not sure on value nitrite: nitrate: 0? Also tested...

    Fish keep dying!!

    Hi, Since the start of this year I have been keeping fish. First I got a 110 litre tank (around 25 gallons) and I have had so many problems. I have had a few ammonia spikes and lost quite a few fish to that. The most recent spike was about two months ago and I have lost a few fish because of...
