I introduced 8 mollies into the tank at once, that was probably what killed them wasn’t it? If so, are my other fish in danger of dying as well? Is there medication I give them?Zka17 said:It is almost impossible to have 0 nitrates... unless you have something special to remove nitrates. It could be something wrong with your testing method...
Depending on where did you get your mollies, they could have been sick already. Also, am I missing the number of the mollies? A sudden increase of the fishes, may have caused an ammonia spike - which in turn acted on the stressed mollies.
Unfortunately, you may have introduced some disease into your aquarium, so keep one eye on the other fish. Keep up with the water changes, and keep measuring the ammonia, nitrites and nitrates.
No that I look at it, the nitrates are probably about 5Guanchy said:what are you using to test your water? if you have 0 nitrates you might not have a cycled tank.
Am I the only one that has done this? I feel so stupid for doing that. I know that you shouldn’t put that many fish in once, I guess I just forgot~Matt~ said:No that I look at it, the nitrates are probably about 5
