My projects

I currently have a 55 and 80 gallon freshwater. I been working on the 55 for about a year and just started the 80 this month.

55 containing; 3 blue dwarf gouramis, 2 snowball plecos, 2 Chinese algae eaters, 2 pearl/jewel chiclids, 1 upside down catfish, 1 electric yellow, and 1 black ear paroon shark? That's what the guy told me.

And just put water in my 80 so still empty

Here is an update for the 80 gallon. Just added plants and after the sand settles I'll take a picture of the fish.

Around 20 neon tetras, 9 red belly tetras? And 3 bala sharks.
Not sure how long the neons will live cause over night I lost 7 so if I lose them all I'm just going to go with bigger Tetras. I also plan on putting a few rainbow and red tip sharks.

Have you cycled? You water looks super cloudy, you lost the 7 neons probly because they are delicate and had an ammonia spike

Did you use established Filter media from another tank? Or a established filter? If not then, you haven't cycled in a week. Also you need to add a ammonia source for a cycle. You can't just let it run. if you did use established media I owe you a apology

I just went out and. Bought the fluval added the few chemicals and treated it like I had fish in there for a week. Meaning I put a pinch of food once a day and let everything run. I did that for my 55 and it worked great

That's not a proper cycle at all. Test your water with a liquid test kit.

I have tested it not going to put fish in chlorine water and pay all this money for them to die. But how did I do it wrong? And what can/should I do?
