Me and my partner set up our tank a week ago, Neither of us are beginners I had tropical fish when I was little up to 18 ... And he had a tank before hand... We set up the tank and left it to settle for a week brought live plants stones etc and got the filter going... As I said we then left it 7 days to settle, We went out last sunday and brought 6 tetra's as we know not too buy more but 3 of them have died so far, We have the temp stickers which is at 83 so thats normal for the tank... We also done a water check that advised the water was 9.5 alkaline the book says thats ok which im not too sure about? ??? We were going to go out again on saturday to buy some more but i'm not too sure about this I don't want to buy more for them to just die... I know tetra's do not usually last long, but the 3 had died within 4 days of getting them, Just wondering if there is any advise anyone can give us? Anything more we can do for the water?
