Get a test kit and test your water...all we are doing is guessing without any of the proper information...it could be a PH swing from different tap water, it could be heavy metals, it could be Ammonia/nitrite posioning, it could be poorly washed gravel, it could be...., it could be....

There is just no way to know usless you get a test kit

Must say, that's the next thing on my shopping list - can sometimes bag full test kits of a certain auction site.

When I set up my new tank i used 'Filter start' by 'interpet'. Its basically the good bacteria you need in a bottle! You dose it directly into the water every two days and it will help speed up the process of cycling your tank which you obviously need to do because you changed the gravel and the filter. In future when you do your maintenance you should make sure you clean your filter in the tank water you have removed from the tank so that it can maintain the good bacteria established within it. I always add filter start every time i do my weekly water change and when i add new fish aswell. Good luck anyways, x
