Hello everyone. I am desperate for help here
On satrday, i went to a fish store and got a new tank, filter pump, a water plant, 2 young giant danios and 6 white cloud fish. I set up the tank nicely, intriduced the fish and everything was fine. Then, the next day i wake up to find the water had gone cloudy. I then did some reaserch on the net and found out about "cycling". Now, the water is cloudier than ever, 3 of my white cloud fish are dead, the rest are sick (not eating, movint slowly, gulping for air) and im freaking out. the nitrogen cycle has started.
I realy love my new fish and i don't want any more to die. Can anyone help me?
How can i comfort my fish while the tank is cycling?
i heard that giant danios are hardy fish but will they be able to cope with the high toxin levels?
and is there any way i can reduce the severity of this "new tank syndrome"?
i am changing about 20% of the water every day but it dosn't seem to be helping.
