Woke up to realise one of my healthiest white tuxedo guppy died this morning. He was one of the healthiest, my nitrites are 0, ammonia between 0-0.25. what could be the issue?

What’s your ph and nitrates? How often do you do water changes? How was the fish acting in the hours before he died? How old was he? How are the other fish acting? Eating? Could you post a few pics of your fish? Please? We’ll try to help all we can.

I don't have a ph and nitrAte tester. Fish was fine yesterday..she died at night..so I donno what the symptoms were before death. They r eating like crazy..all others look ok..tetras look dull in color. I did add some rock salt an hour back though

Din change water simce past two days as nitrites are low and fish looked happy

Rock salt or aquarium salt? Did you completely dissolve it first? Also salt and snails don’t generally mix well. What type of test kit are you using?

Rock salt, dissolved well in a mug of treated water. I really don't care about the snails as they r too much in number and r wild ones. I have API ammonia and nitrite test kit

Adding salt could be the cause id its not aquarium salt
I added salt just now. Not earlier when the fish died

Rock salt (like ice cream salt) has impurities in it. Also, if your snails die, be sure to remove their little bodies promptly as they decay rapidly.

How do I check..if the fish is stressed? Guppies and tetras in my case

You need to see what your nitrates are at. Take a sample to your fish store. They will test for you. Please, get a nitrate test kit too as it is just as important to watch as the ammonia and nitrite. The first 2 could be testing at 0 and still have sky high nitrates.
