You keep saying "normal"... but does that mean 0.0? And is this with a liquid kit or test strips?

Sorry if it sounds like a dumb question, but we've seen many posts where people say their water parameters are "perfect" or "normal" only to find out the levels are anything BUT perfect!

It's liquid and it's 0.00.
i have done a large water change and pretty much am starting over. I put the last fish in the tank today and so far so good.

OK... thanks. At least the folks making suggestions here know that for sure your ammonia is at 0. Believe it or not, we've had folks post before about their "perfect" water, only to find out it had measurable ammonia, but they thought that was OK.

Make sure when you start restocking to do it slowly - one fish a month is probably about the quickest you want to go. That'll give the bacteria time to build up a proper population.

Yeah I have been testing the water every few days. I put the blue fish back in and we have one crab that survived. They are doing well and the tank looks great. Yep we planned on maybe getting one thing this weekend and then adding VERY slowly like one a month or so. I am scared still it was so frustrating watching that all happen!

Babyblue- I know what it is like to watch things turn bad quickly. But it is also important to analyze what has gone wrong and work to avoid it in the future. I think that you have the right attitude, and patience to succeed. Good luck!
