i posted another thread about this a few weeks back....but the problem still continues.....i converted my 55 gallon mnuba tank over to a guppy tank about 3 weeks ago. Prior to that i had them housed in a 20 high but wanted LOTS of guppies so i transfered about 8 over to the 55. since then i have added 10 guppies over the course of this 3 week period. i had about 5 males and the rest were all female. EVERYDAY i find yet another guppy dead
...one day last week i had 6
i am now down to 5 guppies and about 10 fry.
I have some fake plants and i am slowly converting over to live. The only thing i add to my water is prime when i do water changes which is about 25% weekly, latlely its been about 15% every other day because im not sure what is killing my fish. My water params are good Ammonia 0, Nitrite 0, nitrate 10, ph 7.8 and my temp is currently around 82....normally i have it set at 78 but i noticed some flashing 4 days ago so i turned up the heat.
I know guppies dont have as long a life span as some other fish but even my 5 month old, the one i have had the longest (about 4 & 1/2 months), died with the 6 last week. all my fish are QT before going into the display. All the fish are eating normally. the only other fish in the tank is a 2 inch long BN pleco that stays mostly on his driftwood or veggi that i put in for him. they eat tetramin tropical flakes...
WHY IS THIS HAPPENING TO ME!?!?!?!
