I've had an established tank with 5 angelfish and other community fish for almost a year now, with only 1 casualty, until this. A few days ago a woke up to one of the angel fish dead in the center of tank. I thought maybe it just had something wrong internally and went about my day after testing the water and seeing just a slight ammonia rise. Today I got home from work, and its buddy who was always with it in the back also turned up... I retested everything. Everything was fine, nitrates are the only thing that seem a little high at 15-20. I tested the tap water also, tap tested at 10. I'm not sure why they both passed, but all the other fish seem to be doing fine. If anyone has any ideas on why they might have died, I'd be intrested in hearing your thoughts.
hi all been years since i had a tank . just recovered from a nasty messy divorce about 4 years ago and I've finally landed back on my feet once again. i really missed this hobby and would like to get my feet wet again lol and I'm looking at a eco tank setup if possible, but if need be, a filter powered tank is ok. would like to setup a betta with some betta friendly community fish tank near my bed. I've seen a few betta Nano tank setup ups at a fish shop and was thrown back with the pricing and they were generally around the 12 L capacity and thought, wow, that's small and be a challenge to keep the water parameters in check along with the GH and nutrient levels for the plants. saw a new tank, i think about 50L capacity at the store and I'm tempted to buy that, get some frost tint to stick on the back, a good light, heater and filter costing around the $350 mark I'm open for suggestions and after some good deals, if any, in this group. I'm also considering a HOB filter or a mini canister filter for the setup, mainly for the quietness . fish I'm thinking of raising in the tank (well not all, but considering only a few species of): betta Nano chilli tetra's Otto guppies I'm after some if those Indian almond leaves for treating the tank also
