well it's necessary to add water conditioner each time you do a water change.look out for white spots if the fishes look itchy

what do you mean turn on and off?you shouldn't do that.the bacteria dies and it makes the water dirty.plus the tank won't cycle properly.

could be from being nipped.better keep the water clean.dirty water+wounds/torn fins=fungus or infections.soon the fishes will die.is the filter too strong?are you using the HOB type?
