help confirming why my fish died
Well first off I had my glofish alive and healthy in a rubbermaid container with just filter, heater, and a couple fake plants for 3 weeks while I paid an "expert" to reseal my tank. I setup the newly resealed tank and used prodibio start up to kick start the cycle period. I thought the product hadn't done its job and killed my fish but when I check the water readings I had a ph of 8.0, no ammonia or nitrite, and 5ppm of nitrate. Fish were fine yesterday swimming around. And today 3 of 4 were dead. 1 was dead when I woke up. The other 2 were floating sideways at bottom of tank. Took them out and put them in separate tank to see if they would recuperate but they died. Was stumped as to why my fish died then I noticed stringy stuff hanging off one of the corners of my tank. I then realized the silicone was coming off. I lightly rubbed it and the silicone come right off. Is the silicone coming apart what killed my fish?? Or could it be something else?? Any info would help guys. Thanks.
