Please tell me you did a typo and typed 1 too many 0's in there.Sam Livingston said:1.0022
Yes they all died, most within 10 minutes. I'll keep that in mind for future about discarding their water. Called pet store today, they said I should have just got starter fish of damsels. But the damsels died instantly too, so basically they have no clue what happened either. Water still reads perfect.zeeter said:Did they survive the night? How long did the fish live before passing?
This probably didn't do it, but you should never include the water from the LFS in your tank. Pour it off before adding the fish. You never know what chemicals they may have added for medication and things like that.
Check out the picture on the site.Sam Livingston said:Yes too many 0's. 1.022, using Instant Ocean Hydrometer. Explain drip method, i'm not familiar with it.
Thank you, I ended up looking it up after it was suggested, and already have the tube ready for when I return to get starter fishlanlesnee said:Check out the picture on the site.
You could make one from easy enough or just make knot with a piece of tubing. The tighter the knot the slower the flow. You just want a slow, but steading drip. Discard the water as the bag fills. I like to do this for at least an hour, if not two. Depends really on the fish. The longer you run it the slower I would make it drip. Plastic valve makes it easy to do.
Yup I've been keeping on top of water parameters and all are where they should be.Stang Man said:Need to check water perimeters such as ammonia , nitrites, nitrates, ph, kh, phosphates!
I hope you have better luck with you next fishes. Will the LFS refund you your loss?Sam Livingston said:Thank you, I ended up looking it up after it was suggested, and already have the tube ready for when I return to get starter fish
