My ram and another emperor tetra died the day after I last posted but havent had deaths since. Im guessing I may have had something on my hands, I do use hand sanitizer sometimes so maybe I did that without thinking.

I dont think any pipes or anything has been repaired, I have a few other tanks and none of which had any problems.

I use hand lotion compulsively, and I always wash my hands because of that when I put them in my tanks. Perhaps that was your problem. I'm sorry about your fish - don't give up the hobby. You are so lucky to have a 75 gal tank that you can keep lots of fish in and give them a good home

I know that I always want to wash my hands before I work with my tanks, but I have to remind myself that all the pump units have anti-bac soap, even the dish soap is anti-bac, (my husband is neurotic that way, not me), so is your place set up similar and you forgot? Also did anyone clean the windows with Windex or clean the wood furniture spraying cleaner around just before? Think back to activity in that room. Just an idea.
With no visible disease symptoms at all, to me it means the water. So either something entered the water, or the water itself was different than it normally is. i.e. city made changes or a dump of chemicals. Remember Aunt Kymmie's experienced major loss a few months ago in a similar manner. And after her event I spoke with our LFS and they confirmed that our city also does what I call chemical "dumps" at different stations around the city depending on what their tests tell them to "dump"/is needed. It is for the safety of the citizens not the fish sadly. I don't think Aunt Kymmie ever figured out what happended to her tank either.
It might come to testing our water before it goes into the tank....hmmm. And a product to combat the additives that the city "dumps". just in case.. So sorry to hear of the huge loss. Please don't give up!!
