First off...huge thanks to you all here at fishlore.. My original post was "Idk who or what to believe" .You fine folks taught me so much, without treating me like an idiot. The knowledge I've gained is priceless on my journey so THANK YOU! OK.. So come to find out, the place I was getting my RO water from wasn't maintaining their filters properly, my coworker got some to do a change and his 11 fish are now gone, his daughters fish! So now I'm thinking that was my original problem. I ended up restarting. Changed filter, got RO from a different source and took the advice I was originally given. Waited till next day and added fish... Lost 1... The other thrived. 2 weeks later added 2 of the same (longfin white skirt tetra). On tax day I added a Bolivian ram. I'm happy as ever, and finally enjoying my tank! Just wanted you all to know it's working lol I understand the nitrogen cycle much better now. Small victory but it has really made me happy. Have a great weekend yall! Keep those sleeves wet!
