UPDATE:

3 day blackout is over. The sick severum was basically on his last leg and didn't make it through the day today. The other 3 fish seem OK.

The water is still cloudy and I'm about to test it. Should I do a water change right after testing it? Then what should I do?

Thanks again for helping.

Here are the test results after the blackout and before changing any water:

GH: 40
KH: 40-80
pH: 7.2
Nitrite: 0
Nitrate: 40

I'm using the API Test Strips because they didn't have the other kit.

Better than nothing but no ammonia test strips?
I am somewhat surprised to find one did not make it. I am thinking something was progressing before this whole thing began. I found Cichlids to go weeks w/o food, not that I recommend such fasting.

You can turn the light on for 30 minutes during feeding or use room light during feeding.

Anyway, hope things settle down soon.

I was also surprised the 5 in 1 Kit didn't have ammonia testing in it :(

The fish that died was the one in the pics with the eye problem........

So should I keep the light out until the water clears up?
