It sounds like you are waiting a period of time and then, without removing the environmental contaminants that you've gathered from touching money, doorknobs, other people (who may have used lotion), pets, etc., put your hands directly into your tank? Please clarify.
BTW, 48 hours since I've added the airstone and lowered the level in my tank and no more dead fish.
Doesn't it also say on this site to wash and rinse hands throughly before and after touching anything in the tank?
