Tank water? What is tank water? If it is a metal tank, the metal may be poisoning the fish. Is there copper plumbing to and or from the tank? This could also poison the fish. Is the plumbing metal, as in galvanized pipe? The galvanization can poison the fish. Your friend may have to buy RO water or get water from a safer place. I hope this has helped.

You'll need something to detox the the water that is for sure. I would check with my lfs to see if there is any product out there that would do this and corect the problem. To be honest, I don't know of any off hand.
