    Poor Goldfish

    6 weeks into fishless cycle and ammonia is dropping slow

    Hi. I don't post much on here but I'm at a loss. I started cycling my first tank (37 gal, ph 8.2, KH and GH between 15 and 17, temp is around 84-85F) I've added tss+ twice once before I got a new filter (switch as much media as I could to new filter) then added another a little later. Just this...

    4 Dead Fish

    Hi, We've had four dead fish in our large tank in the last few days. We haven't had any die in the tank for about a year or so, so this isn't normal! I'm at work so I can't give you the exact water parameters, but they are all within sensible ranges. No ammonia, nitrite, small amount of...
