Barb-a-cide?

All water conditions are as they should be, as is the temp. (76-78) and all seem to be getting along. Within the past 7 days I have lost 5 Cherry Barbs, all on different days. All the other barbs just seem to face the right rear of the tank and hover. I can also tell who's gonna be next- it's that obvious!

Also, do test kits have an "expiration date?"

P.S. If your reading this Byron, whats up with those Canucks? GO SHARKS!!!!

What size tank? What are the other tank mates? What type of test kit are you using, and can you post the actual numbers instead of just saying that the numbers are all fine? How long has the tank been running? Has anything changed in the tank that could be stressing them out? Could I possibly ask any more questions?

Exact same questions I would have asked, but you saw this thread first! Yes, test kits have expiration dates. Which test kit are you using??

In addition to the info asked by iamgray and kymmie, could you also tell us the tank size, what other fish are in it, are there live plants, do you do water changes (how much and how often), and is anything other than water conditioner going into the tank.

Byron.

P.S. As for the hockey...best left alone.
