Fish committed Mass Suicide (EPIC FAIL)

For the last few weeks I've been struggling with ammonia problems in my tank with green terror fry.

Every once and a while I would hear something that sounded like water splashing. I would look, and not see anything... I assumed it was a burp in the filter or something.



Yesterday I got home (from being gone 4 days) and noticed the tank looked... empty. I could see 2 where there were 10 before...

I moved all the decorations around, and didn't find the extras... I looked on the floor and saw a crispy dead fish.
Then I saw another. and another.

Turns out there were 6 dead fish on my carpet.
Guess I won't be getting my security deposit back for my apartment...

Weird! I am so sorry for your loss, the poor little fish. I know that the profiles on a few of my fish read "keep tightly covered as fish might jump". I know that fish jump after flies and whatnot when eating but, the fish that do this in my tank are my Rainbow shark, which is odd as it is a bottom feeder.

Well I'm assuming there was a huge ammonia spike...

Odd, their instinct to jump out of toxic water was able to save some of my fish.

High ammonia- fish jump out- less bioload- ammonia stabilises

High ammonia- fish dont jump- fish die in tank, releasing ammonia- all fish die.
