Feeding everyday...


How much, what kind of fish, what foods. Sometimes the fish themselves can be the polluter. Like if you had 4 panther groupers in the 55g.

You will need to give a detail about the filtration, how often and if you do water changes, ets....

Maybe you are feeding them to much and its polluting the water. Try cutting back on food a bit and see if it helps.
