whAT is your filter > ? do you do water changes ? you should do a water chage , not the substrate, unless its really' dirty , but you shoudl do a water change of atleast 30% once a week to get your water good and freash and no more deaths. let me know what is in your filter, what kind it is , and tell me more about your tank . good luck , and with questions, and alot of reading what others are doing you can master this ! I have had alot of my favorite sellers that are very young and very into this hobby ! glad your here.
