Don't remember where I exactly left off, but there are massive deaths at my house.
Out of all my fish in my 16G, 35G and 72G, I have 6 Angels (two adults and 4 juveniles), 1 Blackskirt (out of 2), 1 Neon (out of 6 Cardinals & Neons), the white Crayfish, a Nerite, and 5 Harlequin Rasboras (out of 9), 1 Diamond Tetra (out of 4), Lost all 6 Millenium Rainbow and the Parkinsoni Rainbow. 6 Cories, lost 5 of Albino Bristlenose Plecos, and 9 of 9 Glowlight Tetras, still have the community Betta, lost one Banded Kuhli.
Been doing pwc
AM and PM and night before last took town the 35G, last night took down the 16G cleaned it out completely and put back the Albino BN Pleco, the Betta and the 1 Diamond Tetra, the little red Nerite was in there too.
Out of the 35G Just the 2 Koi Angel adults survived with one Kuhli. They went into the 72G.
I am cleaning out the 35G today. It was just sitting with water left in the bottom.
Switching it over to SW
will have to wait for a couple weeks it will be my plant holding tank.
Today I will be removing the rest of the plants in the 72G tank, doing another pwc
based on the amount of muck in the bottom of the tank.
One option is that I move all the remaining fish into the 35G and a few healthy looking ones into the 16G and clean out the substrate and everything in there. Once the substrate is clean I will feel better about putting the tank back together. Because of the pH, most of the MTS snails are dead and gonna foul the water, I haven't noticed a live one in the 72G, unless they are still hiding. There are a bunch of shells on top of the substrate.
I got Purigen for the FX-5 on the 72G.
So overnight there were no more deaths. The big Purple Spotted Gudgeon
is looking so very distressed. I am just hoping he hangs in there. Hoping the fish losses are over, one Koi Angel looks in poor condition too. The rest SEEM active and swimming around nicely.
Physically and emotionally exhausted, had work the last several days and the massive amount of water changing has been a challenge.
Thank you again for all your good wishes, kind words and PM's.
