Emergency - House Caught On Fire! Help

    My house caught fire on Saturday, and my fish survived it. I didn't have anything big enough to transport 55 gallons of water so I stayed as much as I could and when I move the tank I had to use all new water. I tested it and the ammonia is pretty high the nitrite are zero and nitrates are between 5-10.

    My dwarf gourami is dying, my butterfly loatch isn't looking too hot and my bluen gouramis are not themselves

    What can I do to maybe cycle the tank faster or any thing at all it was like a 90 percent water change

    That's awful! Sorry to hear about the house. I'd buy a bottle of Tetra Safe Start to instant cycle the tank.
    Wonder if the fire smoke etc hurt the fish.

    Good idea.

    The weird thing is, they seemed fine before I moved them and put in all the new water. Even though the power was out so the filter and bubbler where not running.
