Please help! Cycling 30g - Parameters are safe, fish dying!
I'm very new to this but I think I've finally got an understanding of all this stuff. I'm still in the first stage of my tank (which took awhile because I kept switching out parts I didn't like. Like loud air pumps and filters that didn't work.)
With that said, I think I've finally got the equipment I think is good and I'm starting to build a beneficial bacteria in my new filter. I'm doing it with fish and I'm doing about 25% to 50% water changes as needed every day or two as needed. My fish are still dying!
I'm keeping Ammonia and Nitrite between 0 and 0.25ppm and Nitrates between 0.25 and 0.50ppm.
I have WELL WATER, is there anything else that could be killing my fish off? Should I keep my hands out of the tank? What am I doing wrong?
Thanks in advance...
