45 gallon tank, neon tetras, guppies, and some wild snails. Its a two month old tank..but looking at the parameters I feel its cycled now..not sure if I'm under feeding them..they go crazy when I feed themGuppykid101 said:Whats the size of the tank? And what were his tank mates?
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 thoughGypsy13 said:

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?SSJ said:
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 kitGypsy13 said:
I added salt just now. Not earlier when the fish diedsmee82 said:Adding salt could be the cause id its not aquarium salt
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.SSJ said:
They were absolutely fine since a while..donnow what spiked up causing the deathsMs rose said:no I doubt the plants did this.
you have had issues befor with these guppys, correct?
if so perhaps the problem wasn't compleatly irraticated back then causeing deaths now
