and by the way +1 on Kelso's last comment about stressing. It does no good and I know that from experience. As wacko as it sounds I think I put out stressed vibes into the tank environment when I feel stressed. (I told you it was wacko). I'm a natural panicky person and today when I saw a loach with very light stripes (instead of the usual high contrast black) I went into a panic immediately thinking maybe he had NTD or some crazy bacterial infection. A few hours later I checked on him and his color was completely back to normal. I needlessly panic this way.

But yes, it does take a lot of work and energy to treat a tank so I feel ya.

Quit the hobby because of an algae outbreak, a few deaths, and ich? I would have been out of the hobby when I started if I had to do that.

I'm sorry, but you are overreacting. Fishkeeping is a HOBBY, and not something someone should be stressed or pressured into. We do this because we love it and KNOW that there will be bumps in the road.

Just sit down and go to through the situation maturely. You need to relax.

Kelso...I don't think I can go as far as 86-87 considering Rummy's appreciate a max of 80...I don't wanna kill the ich along with the fish

Stephanie: Won't do, granted its only 3 fish in the 55g but I do NOT wanna infect them too, moving fish to a clean tank is not a good idea IMO and then I'd still have to kill off the ich in the 45g some way. This way now I'm *trying* to cure the fish and the tank at the same time....hopefully

Cody: The algae was a hassle to get under control, but manageable. But to ONLY have sick fish when ever I try buying some - That just starts to seem pointless to me, get fish, they get sick, I try treatment and they die - What's the point in fish keeping then? A(!!!) sick or dead fish every once in a while ok - But Only sick & dead fish - That ain't cool no more!?

Update this AM: Everybody still seems alive, 1 Rummy is going upside down thou and its not looking got for it judging by the looks....

I know the feeling! I have had fish for so many yrs and always loved to keep them. But, this "dream" tank of mine has turned out to be a nightmare! I'm going to stick it out though. I know I can beat it! I have white coating all in my tank right now, looks like it snowed in there. I'm figureing it's some sort of algae. Along with that High ammonia, nitrite showing up now, and PH that will not stay in one place. Multi deaths, and loss of baby fish due to water being so screwed up.
Pick up rock, aim at middle of front glass, throw rock, problem solved!! We could never do that.

Good luck fixing your problems man, and quitting won't fix anything. This may seem kinda trivial, but where'd you get your fish from? I've gotten 4 fish from a pet store, all of them died, I've gotten like 10+ from a fish store, they're all alive.

Well temp is as far up as it can go with the guys that are in there...Meds been administered 2x so far....all I cn do now is keep up the meds and see what happens over the next few days...there's not much else i know of that I could do......
All else fails I'll get me CPO again and make the 45g one heck of a CPO farm LOL or drain it & make it frog habitat or something...

I just wish I could find another source for fish then the one's I found here.....

Update Day 3:
So far Temp's been successfully raised w/out issues with anyone. Meds been administered 2x so far (again tonight) and so far (knock on wood) no losses. Which I'm hoping is a GOOD sign, as my Cardinals were ALL dead by day 3 - so I'm hoping this means cure is undergoing there.
