Help wanted and probably needed, Freshie startup Q's
Hello. I started my10 gal freshwater aquarium(with hood 10 gal filter gravel, etc). I ran it for a month and a half maybe 2, then at about 2 months added two comet starter fish, they werent as health as i had hoped, one died after a week the other one was wierd, when he would eat, food would come out his gills as he swam, he was very thin! and died after about 2 1/2 weeks. after a week i tested the water everything checked out fine and I have added 5 mollies, 3 black, 1 silver/white, and 1male lyretail dalmation. Should my tank be fine? Also I began my tank with Lava rocks as decor, is this a no-no? The PH is fine. any constructive criticism?
Ps used to have many tanks, but its been a while.
