However a LOT of the water was removed so it could be moved easier. So I assumed it should have been cycle. The one small alge eater eats more flakes than alge lol I do feed them alge disc because I knew I didnt have much alge. However sense I treated for parisite and have had the carbon filter out it seems to be growing some because both mollies and guppies are going through and picking at all the plants and stuff like that. I have large gravel bits instead of small so the do a lot of cleaning lol
I totaly agree it seems like something is missing. I have had a tank before a few yrs back for several yrs but it had Oscars in it and they are impossible to kill LOL So never had any issues at all! I will treat for the ammonia and nitrate and see if that perks them up. At this point as I sit here and watch my tank...Most of my guppies except 2 males act really good. Swimming all over the tank and cleaning plants. My Mollies all except one of my males are acting really good as well now too. They are going through and cleaning swimming breading all that. My Tetras and bottom feeders have been fine the whole time. The male guppies and moly they just act slugish staying on the bottom of the tank. The molly is sitting inside an orniment even.
Let me know if you can think of something else to add that will help :)
How many fish do you have in total in the tank, and what size? (for example, i have 3 mollies, 1 is full size, around 2 inches, the other 2 are about in inch an a half long) lets start by weeding out the possibiility of overstocking, as that can cause an ammonia build up. You can be general, as i know the guppies dont exceed an inch in length, as well as the tetras.
