Blaxicanlatino, sorry for your loss.

ive always done 2 drops per gallon according to the label.

and it seems many plants have started growing again but its a bunch of death in the tank X( at least my amano shrimp survived so hes doing a good job at eating the dead marterial in the tank.

Byron, I have found that the pH is different in this new house. The old water had a pH of about 6.3 and the new water in this house is 7.4

The ph change is significant. We also need to know the hardness (get this from the water supply folks) so we can estimate what is likely to occur in the aquarium. In the meantime, I would do very small water changes.

ah your right! im out of testing solution so i need to get something for KH. Everything in the tanks seem to be doing normal now and i noticed that my cherry shrimps are breeding like rabbits again. The tank that suffered that horrible fate seems to regained growth on all plants and my betta is an aggressive as ever.
