Hey guys so I’m fed up with my tank. I got a 30 gallon tank for free from a friend with a stand. So I bought a marine land filter and a heater to keep it at a temp and a bubbler and a led light And gravel and a gravel siphon. I also bought test strips with hoping I wouldn’t have to drop the money on a better tank. So we started the tank using safe start and we lost our first few fish in a few days of getting them. So I did a complete restart. And used safe start again. This time we put 2 goldfish and 2 plecos... yes I have been informed they get huge. Well we where able to keep the gold fish alive for about month and half even thru a bad algae bloom. So I got into the habit of weekly water changes and cleaning the rocks. Well everything was going good till yesterday. Woke up and both goldfish where dead but plecos are fine. Stumped me I checked my water levels and they where all fine besides hard water. Well I kinda have given up. I pulled the dead fish did my normal water change routine. I went to the store and got some cheaper fish that only grow to 2inches or 3. I stocked the tank with those 6 of them. I’m at the point if they die Im emptying the tank of everything and putting it in storage. I’ve never know people to have so many problem with tanks. We only add one water treatment and that is for calorine cause we have town water. And usually that window is closedand we don’t usually have the light in during the day. I don’t know guys I’m fed up any advice?
