Okay, so I have this 10 gallon planted aquarium that currently holds four zebra danios, one ember tetra, and a ghost shrimp. It's heated and filtered, obviously, and every time I test the water it comes out well. It's been running for a year and a half. I keep trying with new fish and troubleshooting -- it could have been this fertilizer, it could be the filter cartridge, maybe the shrimp killed them, might have been a bad batch -- but every time I get new fish they last a few days and happily eat and swim around, but will one by one by one super thin and stay in a corner at the top over the course of maybe a month. They only last a few days or a week after this and honestly I don't know what to do anymore. Since I've had the tank I've tried with Neon tetras, ember tetras, pygmy cories, and scarlet badis but they all slowly die out. I mean, I have one surviving ember tetra. I'm distraught and I have no idea what to do.
