Help!

Two of my fish died. I checked the ph like i always do and it was way low. I did about a 1/3 to 1/2 water change. Now the ph is perfect but the tank is still cloudy after a day and the water has a weird red tint to it. Someone help me please! What is the matter?

What exactly is the pH initially and right now ? Without knowing the exact figures, we cannot determine the exact problem. What are your ammonia, nitrites and nitrates? When did you last change the water? What size is your tank? What fish are in it?

I would suggest determining your KH and GH as well. You need test kits for both.

As was already said, we really need information to help you. The more you can tell us about your tank and situation, the faster we can all help. If you don't have test kits, most LFS's will test water for free. Take about 1 cup of tank water to them in a zip lock baggie, within an hour of taking it from the tank and ask them to write down exact results and the kind of test kits they used.
