One of my fish died last night and now I am worried for the rest. I am going to get a testing kit to see if I can work out what I need to do. I really hope the others are ok.

Ok had the water tested and all is fine but I was told that I shouldn't have been sold a loach until the tank had been running for at least 4 weeks and that the loach was a bad recommendation due to the size they can get to. They think it might have been transporting it the killed it. I've done a 20% change and liftd my filter up a bit to create more water agitation - does it matter if the tube with the holes faces downwards or across the water?

Welcome! You will find lots of helpful people on here. Sadly the staff at pets at home really don't have a clue - they are there to sell things only. And I bet if they told you you would need a £100 tank you wouldn't have bought one!
Good luck and glad all seem to be doing ok so far

It's pretty sad that you can't trust the lfs to give you correct information, but we've pretty much all been lead astray by less than knowledgeable staff.

The one I bought wasn't exactly cheap. They did have ones that were really nasty. Some of them do seem to know what they are talking about and others dont, like everything I suppose. This forum is really helpful though and each day my tank looks cleaner and the fish seem happy, the happier I am!

If you have a maidenhead aquatic near you they are quite good - where are you from?
