Will need more data, but I would suspect CO2 is not an issue, nor oxygen. Significant differences in TDS, GH or pH are more likely.

I moved them from a tank with no live plants a bublbler and a HOB to a planted tank with 2 cannister filters I use the same water conditioner and cycle in both same water the ph is lower in the planted tank but the kh and gh are the same there are no nitirtes in the planted tank but the nitrates were up to 10 PP I have been over feeding maybe a bit int the 120 gallon the other 2 dennisons are fine now could it be just the stress they are very fast fish and hard to catch but I wanted to quarantine them I have had them for a month in the other tank

Sorry to here about your denisons Boxer. I'm glad the rest seem to be doing ok now.

Ches, I haven't taken a video of feeding the dwarf puffers yet because I didn't do water changes yesterday, and our kitchen in an embarrassing mess. "Tis the season.

Boxer, how are the denison's doing now? Are you going to the Big Al's Boxing Week sale?

Are you going Jakie? Still looking for a big tank?

We FINALLY did our water changes today, and Jodie cleaned the kitchen, so we made a video of feeding the dwarf puffers live white worms, and feeding frozen blood worms to the Amazon Puffers, Red Tailed Shark, and Silver Dollars.


You can hear Charlie being WAY too excited in the background.






As soon as I have money again, which won't be that soon, lol, I'm going to add more plants to both of these, and we're going to start planting the 20 gallon and the 55 gallon Rainbowfish tank. Eventually we'll only have fake plants in the Silver Dollar tank. Right now there are fake plants in six of our tanks, and real plants in three of them. Only one tank is all live plants.

Tank is looking great Boxer, the loaches and rainbows complement each other nicely. Lots of color in there. Hopefully your dennisons will all be back together and healthy soon.

I was also hoping dennisons would be on sale (apparently all the fish will be) and they had some last we were in. I also need plants, and food. But we went overboard on Christmas for Charlie so we'll probably have to skip the big sale this year. And I was finally going to buy a master test kit, lol.

I have NEVER tested my own water. I'm like the Queen like that.

I have already seen my CAE's fighting with each other over the giant log. Jodie said once that one chased off a bala, but didn't pursue him once he took off. Sketchy.

I may return them in January once the Boxing Week madness is over. I have never brought fish back before.
