Does bleach kill all parasites and or diseases? HELP!
I have had the worst nightmare of my life with my aquarium. I have 130 gallon salt water aquarium built into my livingroom wall. Worst move I have ever made. I have live sand, live rock, the best pump and equipment, the works. Ok, got it all set up and cycled, now time to add the damsels. Some died, some lived. Then I started adding regular fish, all of the tang varieties, clowns, wrasses, queen angel, coral beauty, emperor, gray angel, and some others that I can't remember the names of. Slowly, one by one, they were dying. All the same sort of thing. Started hiding away, didnt want to come out and loosing their color and scratching on the rocks from time to time. Then they got a blotchy appearance and just went down hill and died. One by one. Dosed for Ick, dosed with formalin, dosed for just about everything. Now all are dead and nothing left. I'm so discouraged, I cried for hours last night. I have done everything that they told me at the pet store to do, only to watch them die one at a time over a period of months. One person said it's nitrites, but my nitrites are 0. Another person said it was Ick, so I treated for that. Another person said it was Neobennidinia, so I treated for that. Still, all died one at a time. Something in my tank was killing my fish, and nobody knows what it was. They still don't know. So, now what? Sell the tank and forget about the nightmare? I can't, it's built into the wall. I have so much money invested in this thing, it was going to be something that gave me enjoyment, but it has turned into a hell hole that I don't know what to do with. Now I have a big empty tank and I"m clueless. I had someone tell me to sterlize the tank and start over, so that's what I did. I went out and bought some Clorox bleach and I put 70ML in the tank. Don't know for sure if that was the right amount, nobody can tell me that either. Sure looks nice now, it killed all the algae. Hey, I'm still trying to keep a sence of humor through all of this. Does anyone know if the bleach will kill everything and anything that is in my tank? I need to know. If not, I guess I will have to drain it, dry it out and start over again. Didn't want to drain the water because it's a pain in the neck. I'm just so upset about all of this and everyone I talk to has a different theory and they are all worthless becasue none of them saved my fish. Bottom line is there is something in my tank that killed everything and nobody could identify it. So, I have to start over. This time around, I'm going to go with a small hosiptal tank and leave every new fish in there for a few weeks first. I think that's the only way to ensure my entire tank won't crash again. But, now I"m afraid to put any fish in there again, I'm almost scared of killing more fish, and I don't know if the clorox will kill whatever the bad thing is in my tank. Any suggestions? Please help?
