I've never had fish die during cycling... I just test water daily (sometimes 2x a day), change out as necessary, and I add BioSpira on initial setup. Not one fatality. Still have all the original cycling fish that I started with and have been through 3 cycles.

I'm sorry, that stinks. I have rasboras too and really like them. I always liked the green ones too. Did you or your LFS test your water to find the high chlorine? What about your other tank? How is it that they are ok?

I also test my tap once in while, but not very often and for chlorine...

They are not sure if there is even a test for chloromines. They are checking for me. All of my other tanks are fine outside of the drama of my betta tanks. :P I need to put a background on one tank and this morning I had to remove the few remaining shrimp from the other. The big thing is that the rasboras are so small, it doesn't take much to affect them. :(

I did a Google search on "chloramine test" and it came up with a bunch of stuff. If I were you I'd get some. You could then do some experimenting on exactly how many drops you'll need to neutralize it.

Thanks.

I've got to go to the LFS today and I'll see if they have one in. They normally get shipments in on Thursdays.
