Hello folks. I bought an aqueon 20g led tank, filled it with RO water, foolishly added water conditioner and the bottled bacteria. Sit for 24 hours and added fish. 3 hours and they died..I didn't test water previously, my mistake... So a week passes and the water turns cloudy. I go to another fish store (felt like I was being sold at the other store ) test the water and was told I'm perfect (tested for ammonia, nitrite, nitrate and pH). So I added 2 more fish (white skirt ?Tetra) they lasted about 5 hours. I floated bag for 15 to 20 mins, they seemed to be freaking out so I figured let them in before they kill themselves. I'm gonna restart everything but do you all think I overdosed on conditioner? Maybe lack of surface agitation? I'm curious. Like I said im going to tear it down and start over but maybe a lesson is to be learned here? Thank you for your time. I will continue reading threads in hopes of finding something.
