This is actually my second time trying the saltwater world. This time I researched much more than with my previous attempt. My 29 gallon JBJ nano has been up and running since February. I first tried two clown fish.. One died but the other is doing well. It seems very active and he eats when I feed him every other day. I first asked my LFS
if it would be okay to start adding other fish. I was assured that all is fine. I tested my water with water parameters being perfect.
Ammonia - 0
Nitrites - 0
Nitrates - 0
pH - 8.2
Phosphates - 0
Salinity - 1.025
Temp - ranges between 75 - 77
To ensure my water was as I tested, I had my LFS
to test with results being the same.
Anyway!! I purchased a diamond goby (3 inches in size). The goby was fine the first and second day.. Digging and even eating mysis shrimp. When I came home on the third day he had perished. He didn't look stressed, he was eating... All seemed fine. I'm looking to see if anyone has any insight as to why I keep killing fish. In acclimating, I slow drip acclimated for 45 minutes before adding to the tank. I'm am terrified to put anymore fish in my tank. If anyone could help I would appreciate it very much!
