hay there.
well i'm at a loss as to what it could have been,
i thought like everyone else to be honest.
I must say it does distress me when things like this happen.
I myself have just lost my last Ram.
and i thought this time i had done my utmost
to have everything just right,however i did not
and she died.
i hope that things return to some sort of "normality"
for you and you do not loose heart in this hobby.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Have absolutely no idea as to what may have occurred.

The tank has stabilized now (I hope) in that the remaining bottom dwellers, the cories and the yoyo's, appear to be "happy again".


I had done a 25% WC with tap water but this was well over a month prior to the disaster.

The WC's which occurred in the period extending from the 25%WC cited above to the commencement of the disaster were accomplished with RO water.
(This caused me to think of a topic which I believe needs to be said occasionally but which, I believe, is often overlooked and that is filter changes for RO systems. In order that my RO unit be effective in producing RO water from my West Texas tap water I change the primary and secondary filters semiannually and the tertiary filter annually.)


Thanks but obviously I am at a loss also.


I very much appreciate yall's input to this thread.

Although very well cogitated the generation a definitive answer was unfortunately not the outcome.

Needless to say the Queen's and Gold Nugget's which I lost in the fertilizer fiasco and now in this disaster cost "an arm and a leg":
I am somewhat nervous about my purchase of hill stream loaches, snow ball pleco's and 20 baby show guppies and
have postponed their delivery until the middle of September.
