You need to do a water change, like now. Your not really taking this very seriously, or listening to the advice I'm giving you very well. Your tank is not cycled and you have toxins in your water that your fish are breathing in and soaking up. Like... DO A WATER CHANGE LIKE YOU'VE BEEN TOLD LIKE 17 TIMES!!!!!

And when you go to the pet store today why don't you pick up some drops that remove chlorine and heavy metals from your tap water so you don't have to let the water sit for days before you do a water change. It doesn't cost much, when you return your catfish get store credit or something and use that to buy the drops.

And just before you laid dead weight upon its shores, I stung you in the face for that's the nature of my core.

I have the drops, that's what I put in the water to purify it.

And how many tests does one test kit do?

If you have the drops then why are you letting the water sit for a few days? the drops are so you can put the water in right away. You let the water sit to let all that stuff evaporate but since you have drops that take it out then obviously you don't need to let it sit.

I don't know how many tests it does, a lot? Like prolly over 500

Are you doing a water change yet?

"And I would never recommend changing anything more then 50% of the water, sorry but 90% of the water is just to much in my opinion."

At that point, there are no fish in the tank anyway, so it will not bother them. What I read was that at the end of the cycle, there will be way too many nitrates for healthy fish, and the water will be quite old. Doing a large water change (the site recommended one 90% or 3 50%) is supposed to get excess nitrates out and reoxygenate the water. Like I said, you probably have much more experience than I do, I just wanted to explain what I wrote.

Oh, I forgot in my last post. You really need to do a water change NOW if you don't want all of your fish to die. Just think how long you would last if your house filled up with some sort of toxic gas! You don't have to let the water sit if you have water conditioner drops, so please put some new water in there now.
