InsanePyrDragon Posted January 8 Share Posted January 8 I've been watching Fish For Thought and saw tank on sale at christmas so I went ahead and got a 10 gallon kit from petsmart. Put in a couple Java Ferns, fluval plant stratum, filled it with tap water, added some leaf zone and tetra safe start, then put in 10 neon tetras. Everything was going great for the first week until I noticed a bunch of white spots on my fish. I did some googling and yup they had ick so I started treating them with super ick cure, added a tablespoon of salt to the tank and set the heat to 80 F. Well all but one of my 10 tetras died but my last fish seemed to have recovered and while I was continuing to treat with ick cure I know that tetras need a school to not get stressed. So I got him 10 new neon tetra friends put the bag in to acclimate them and then added them to the tank. They were all dead within 48 hours all of the new fish, my loner is still swimming around. I put a test strip in the tank then GH is 30 the KH is 0 the PH is 6.0 the NO2 and NO3 is 0. Sorry for the wall of text, but I do hope to be able to keep fish alive in my tank. 1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
