Ethan, you have been struggling with sick fish for a month now. Your tank wasn't cycled at the beginning and your fish are probably dying because they are living in toxic water. Get your dad to test the water for pH, Ammonia, Nitrites and Nitrates. Write the results down and post them on here. Without ALL that information, we can't help you and your fish will keep dying. Fill out the form on the link provided by PascalKrypt above COMPLETELY. Better yet, have your dad fill it out since he is the one that is doing the testing. OR Read the directions on the test strip package and do the testing yourself. You should learn to do that anyway.PascalKrypt said:You're going to have to provide us with some more information in order to tell you what went wrong. Try filling out the information on this template and post it here.
Alternatively, you can read up on the beginner guides in this thread, they have a lot of info.
Doing a 'fish swap', whatever you mean by that, has nothing to do with ammonia being in your tank. But yes, that is what in all likelihood killed your tank. I know chemistry may seem a little daunting, especially at your age, so I will try to keep it simple. Please do take the time to read and carefully think about what is written below. If you still do not understand, you may want to ask someone to help you, as this is really critical information in order to keep fish as pets for any length of time.Ethan30 said:Thank you for all the recommendations. I will try and water change. More often.
Also do you think the GouramI died because of Ammonia spike due to fish swap? And would daily water changes shock the fish. Mabye 10% changes slowly
