I just started keeping an aquarium with a 36 gallon setup. My fish were doing fine for a couple days now. They are dying and sucking air at the top. My filtration is more than adequate. My water tests seem fine. The temp is about 79. I only have 12 small fish (guppies, swordtails, tetras, small catfish). Don't know what to do. Any suggestions?

Do your test strips test the ammonia levels? Fish tend to gasp for air because of ammonia or ph levels. Are they dying from ich? If you see white speckles on the fins they have ich. You can get medicine at a pet store and helps quickly reverse it.
