A few days ago i posted about the high nitrates it was this that was causing the popeye from beforei managed to get rid of it the first time but they recently got it again and thats when i posted about the high nitrates. (takes a breather)
i did the water changes and cleaned the sandbed but still the fish had popeye. well today i found one of my percs dead and i got it outta there before the nitrates would go up any further.
now i couldnt figure it out, i figured maybe the blackout might've spiked it but the nitrates would have died down after the cleaning, so i looked around the tank and two of my turban snails were dead also, i dont know for how long but it didnt smell like it was recent, i couldnt even see them until i checked the whole tank, but now im gonna do some water changes and hopefully removing the dead snails will help stabilize the nitrates.
