I Don't Understand...

My tank is cycled. My khulI loaches are healthy. I have a blackwater tank...and my betta is dead. I did water changes, added almond leaf...was I too late? What happened? Is it my tap water? If it was, the khulis are more sensitive...they should have gotten sick first. My ammonia read at .25, but it always has...it was ammonium at a ph of 6.5 - 6. What the heck happened? I did everything I could to save him and still lost him. My poor cali... rest in peace buddy.

Do you know the pH of the water that your betta was in before you added him to the tank? I suspect that it might be a pH shock or a poor quality betta.

How long did you have him before he died?

I'm beginning to suspect PH shock myself. We moved to a house under a different water district. He didn't get sick until I did my weekly maintenance...

More than a month

So much for that theory. I'm sorry about your fish. I lost a Betta unexpectedly years ago and I think it was from a water parameter issue. They are more sensitive to it than I'd realized.
