    FISH DYING

    Yeah that's what I am going to do now. Get cycled. I have read and watched so much crap I don't know what's right and what's wrong.

    FISH DYING

    I did use Dr. Tim's bacteria initially. I think I added to many fish to quickly. I have a hang on back filter and sponge filter. The hang on back has carbon in it. Is it good or bad to run carbon during cycle? The confusing part is when to do water changes. Ammonia and nitrites were never very high. (less than .15) The highest nitrate levels I ever tested were 12-15. Is 12-15 too high right before a water change?

    Thanks for your thoughts. I’m gonna try to make sure I’m cycled and do just one fish like you said. Thanks again!

    FISH DYING

    Down to a chromis and a Royal Gramma. Although they didn't look to good this A.M. I transferred them to another tank with new water this morning. I lost 2 cardinals, and 2 chromis. I may take you up on the sponge. Thanks.

    No I guess not. I guess I didn’t think it was possible with nothing really in tank for bacteria to form on. I don’t have a main cycled tank yet to pull water from.

    FISH DYING

    Hello, I am new to the saltwater hobby. I have been quarantining fish for about 3 weeks. I have lost 4 fish so far and not sure why. I have them In a 20 gallon aquarium and do a 3-4 gallon water change every 3 days. (maybe that's not enough) The funny thing is that a fish will die and the rest seem fine. I checked my water and this was the results: Ammonia <.15, Nitrites .25, and Nitrates around 12-15. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
