I should of clarified. I have tested the water before and the numbers across the board were great. I use a friend's kit and I havent tested in a month or so. Like I said, everything has been great. I was just talking about how great the tank was doing two days ago.

For all of us in mourning, please visit my photo gallery.
Moments of silence are appropriate and appreciatied !!!!

IMO a eel dying and fouling the tank in 3-4 hours to the point it kills other fish is not a possibility. I would make it a priority to get a test kit for amm and nitrate.
My SF eel died and was in the 55 all day with 7 other fish and they were all fine, this is why I don't feel it was a amm spike for the eel dying.
What kind of eel..

Do you use any deodorizers, or stain repellants on your carpet that could have stuck to the eel? Just a thought....

Black Edge Moray Eel
I wish it would of happend during the day or evening. Everything was such a blur at 5am. Im suprised I even heard the eel squirming around. Probably would of been better if I didnt hear him, as sad as that sounds.

As far as carpet stuff, there hasnt been any deoderizers or stain solutions. Good thought.
