My name is Rob and I am looking for some advice on tropical Fish as I feel the pet shop advice, shall we say is not the best.
We have had a 54 litre tank setup now for a while must be 11 months or so.
It seems to be pretty healthy, however we cannot seem to stop fish dying every so often. What we have in our tank at the minute is:
Our tank is well planted with 5 live plants and also we have plenty of hiding places such as a cave and pot.
We seem to have a major problem with keeping Siamese fighting fish. In total we have had 4 now and the first three died within one day and the most recent (Today) within 3 days.
Other fish that we have that died our:
These were all very lively and showed no signs of sickness, they just seemed to die!
However our Dalmation molly who is our most liveliest fish is very quiet not eating today.
We do a 25% water change once every week and add water conditioner so we are looking for some advice as to what we are doing wrong.
We have had the water tested a while back and it was fine but just to be sure we are going to get it tested tomorrow.
We appreciate any advice anyone can give.
