from bad to worse... 7 fish down, one day
so, my common pleco, my bumble bee cat, a fancy guppy, and 4 ghost shrimp that i just got today, all dead. i went out today to bring back my glass cat and my neon tetra that just died yesterday to petco, and brought back 4 ghost shrimp and a clown pleco, did a 80% water change and took out all the slate rocks that i had boiled and put in, and during taking the water or and such, i found my bumble bee cat and my guppy down and out. i then put the water in and everything and let the tank settle, tested it, put the new fish in with bags, came back 20 min later, late them out, and now 3 or 4 hours later, my pleco and my shrimp are all gone. my ammonia test just finished, its .5 ppm, my strips came back with all my nitrites 0, nitrates 0, everything perfectly fine. what in the world am i doing wrong? im taking trips back to the pet shop almost weekly. i started to set up my 55 today and then went up and found more dead fish, its looking like im better off selling all my stuff then continueing it. is there anything i can do? this is just absolutly redic im pulling my hair out and everything.
