Hello, I am a new member. I am going to buy a 10 gallon aquarium today for my birthday. So, could I have some suggestions of what to do?...because I don't know very much about fish and keeping them. I was introduced here by Stradius011, so...yeah.
what are your readings for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate? has your tank cycled yet? how often and how much are your water changes? have you cleaned your filter? if so did you do it in old tank water? don't do it under the tap as the chlorine will kill the good bacteria. also remember to add dechloinator to your water that's being added to the tank and that its the same temp as the tank water. also am I right in thinking your original 2 male guppies are in there and the 2 new guppies. is that what's left? just remind me what's in there!!! I lose track! :-\ how are they looking? feeding ok? swimming a lot or just hovering in one spot alot? fins and gills all looking ok? danios are fairly hardy, i'd say more so than guppies, so it is odd they've died and the guppies havent.AquaDuk said:Hey thanks for all the help, guys. But listen. I had 3 zebra danios in the beginning. Then 1 died. So I went back to the store and got a refund for it and 2 guppies. Now 1 more zebra danio is dead. And another one is dying, I think. What's wrong? I don't understand why they keep dying!
