Fish problems

Hi, seven days ago i bought four fish; two Glass blood fin and two rummy nose. When they started living in their new home they seemed fine but the next day they we'rent eating any of the food i had been feeding them and my light blew, so it was a dark atmosphere for long periods of time. Three days ago one of the rummy nose died, and i also got and new light the day before. Now every time i turn the light on after having it off, i notice the glass blood fin are very pale and their red fin is almost completely pale as well with a slight amount of red. My fish still aren't eating and I've seen them "darting" around a little bit.

Please help

Welcome to AA glad you decided to join have you cycled the tank yet? Do you know about the nitrogen cycle?

Thanks No is that when you take out a third of the water and replace it with new water every fortnight? or is that something different?

Did you add an ammonia source for the bacteria to feed off of? Do you have tests results of your water from recent? Things like ammo nitrIte nitrate and PH.

Before i put my fish in i had an ammonia and pH test and the results were fine and the store said my tank was ready for fish. No i didn't put in an ammonia source.

That's why your tests cam back fine then.. they never even began converting anything so all tests would read zero. If you'd test now I bet you have ammo and nitrIte readings

Get a liquid API master test lit so you can test your water but most importantly water changes
