Gannon Posted January 31, 2022 Share Posted January 31, 2022 Hello. I recently posted about fish struggling and dying in a tank I just rescaped. For more information on the tank parameters and such look at that post but it isn’t very relevant. After a fish died and the rest are doing better in quarantine, I determined something is seriously wrong with the tank itself so I took out all the decorations and gravel because I suspected the gravel could’ve been the problem as it was sitting in a wet bad for a while. However I came to find that all the decor, tank itself, filter, wood, rock, etc all had the same weird smell that is vaguely chemical like. I am very concerned about what this means. I used a net in both this tank and one of my displays to get the fish in the first place, is this cross contamination that would be a problem? What do I do with the tank, wood, rock, plants, filter, etc?? What do I do to make sure the buckets I’ve been using are safe. what do I do at all? Very panicked and stressed if you can’t tell. I know this is a hard one but I would really appreciate any help, thank you I honestly can’t even conceive where a chemical of some kind could’ve came from. I do my water changes and such next time washing machines and stuff roomates use but I doubt any detergent got in there or anything but that’s the only possibility I can even think of. Also wouldn’t detergent make the water bubbly and soapy? This wasn’t something I noticed. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
