+1 ... i def wasnt trying to negate your post by any means. Water quality does play a big part, for instance it could be the determining factor of weither of not your fish can handle any disease... but as kurty said, it def wont prevent all diseases.

that's terrible
Please don't feel discouraged or disheartened.
EVERYONE in this hobby has had loss - whether it be because of a disease outbreak or the frustration of cycling.
I myself lost a tank of 9 show quality Bubble-eye goldfish when my 65 gallon LEAKED overnight!


Don't give up. You may have lost a few hundred dollars. But the satisfaction and happiness you get back when everything works successfully is priceless. The joy and beauty of an aquarium is undeniable.


The key is to do lots of research about EVERYTHING on this hobby. It's the best way to learn.
Ask lots of questions - don't ever feel like your question is stupid. Chances are, many people have thought about the same question.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

I stared a year and a half ago never had a fish tank jumped in the deep end got my reef going lost some nice corals but getting better now can tell by looking if something is wrong now . When ever I had enough (algae outbreaks) it just made me work at it harder , now for the first time I am looking at my tank thinking this is a nice tank . Basically u need to think if u want it to work if u do find the answer and make it work .. Good luck !
