You added fish way to fast. How big is this tank?

You need to let your tank cycle. This can take 3-12 weeks. The ammonia in your tank is buring your fish.

Cycling can be done with fish. You need to do a water change, 25% about 3 times week to prveent levels of ammonia and nitrites from becomeing toxic.

Add dechlorinator every time you do a water change and your fish have a descent chance of surviving the cycle none the worse for wear.

Alright, good.

Are these Tiger Fish Tiger Barbs?

I persoanlly would do a 10-20% change every day untill your levels die down. Thats what I did, and the cycle went by really fast.

I Love you cody. I am now changing water every 12 hrs now it seems that it is working. I am sending you ther picture also so that you can help me more.





It is okay to change water twice a day(i.e. every 12 hrs) or only Once a day.

Good job. Your Tiger Fish are Tiger Barbs. One of my favorites. :) Once you are done cycling, I would get 2 or 3 more, because they can get very nippy in small groups.
