As for the water the tank has been running for 3 weeks , and when I change water I always change 25 to 30 % of the tank at a time and replace with bottle water with start zyhme and stress coat added . But I really dont change the water often unless I have been medicating it for some reason . I 've always had good luck with all my tanks , its really bothering me that Im killing my guppies I have stopped buying them until I can resolve the problem. Do you think it may be the hets? Im sory I dont know the scientific name they look like tiger barbs but no strips just a blck triangle on back bottom .? Again thank you for your help and advice .
If its running for 3 weeks only that means its probably not fully cycled. Therefore, you need to cycle your tank. Also get your own liquid test kit and test it yourself... more accurate, and you know the numbers which helps us a lot more.
