    Sorry, didn’t see that didn’t post. Blue one was found deceased. So I’m down to one. He seemed great this morning. I did the nitrate test and they’re good. Bad news, he isn’t eating. I didn’t feed him yesterday intentionally as to avoid over feeding concerns… today I tried twice and he’s not...

    I can’t find the blue guppie! Like no where…. I need to ask the kids if the babysitter maybe removed him, but I can’t find him at all this morning. One guppy left. And he’s pooping! Which I think is a great sign? Cause he’s not dying if he’s pooping? I haven’t fed them in 36 hours for fear of...

    This guppy seems to be floating vertically in the tank. I think he’s the next to die… I just can’t figure out what’s killing them. I’m giving up, fish are just too complicated for me.

    We had to have a water softener installed, but for one fish, we bought pre-conditioned water…

    They tend to get slow, and he one started to swim sideways and seem disoriented. I have two still alive. I’m here asking for help because I need to know what’s killing them, I just can’t buy another until I know what it is.

    Oh, it’s the guppies that spit it up. They spit it up and it falls to the ground.

    Okay, I’m reading this… and wow, I feel overwhelmed… but I can do it. But it says the old way to do it was to put in “hearty” fish…? What is a “hearty” fish. My kids don’t care what kind of fish it is, just so long as it swims.

    I had a beta in college, it lived 2 years. I had one at my first job, I passed it along to the next person when I left, and I had one at my most recent job and I found a home for it when I moved. Betas we’re easy I said. flash forward… my son wants a fish. I get him a beta. It survives night...
