I have a bio orb, i did a half water change as i normaly do but something obviously went very wrong. Within 1 hour 1 silver dollar had died, over the next 12 hours the other 5 all died. The only think i can think is the tap water must have been bad but how when it's tap water the same as i always use

Did you use a water conditioner/dechlorinator?

No but i never have and ive had the silver dollars for 2 years
I'd say that you definitely should! There is fluctuations in whats in the water coming from your tap, and you just got hit with levels of something that your fish couldn't handle this one time. So dechlorinator every time will prevent it from happening again.

At least that is my best bet at what happened.

Thats what i thought. I am left with 2 Angel fish and 1 of them is not looking good with a damaged dorsal fin and a missing side fin. I'm guessing the dollars battered it before they died

Aren't those bio orbs tiny?

They were only tiny and would have been mooved to my larger tank in time
The one issue that arises with planning to move fish when they get too big, is that sometimes the limited space stunts their growth. This is a problem because their organ's growth doesn't get stunted.
