Hey all! Supa newbie here, Marsha is the name.
I bought a 10 gal
. tank and 3 neons, 2 platys, and one bottom feeder. All died within 9 days. Yikes!!!!!
Neons got caught in the filter, fixed. Bottom feeder just died??? One platy got ICH died, the other platy died last night sometime.
The "pet store" kept testing my water and said it was fine. Ugh!
Soooo, today I went to a different "pet store" purchased some testing strips, 3 more neons and 4 beautiful guppies, baby was free, so 5.
I did a complete change out of my water because of the ICH and proceeded to refill my tank. I could not get the nitrite right but after reading and studying this site for a couple hours I finally happened on a great thread and wow!!! After 4 75% change outs I finally got everything right! HALLELUJAH !!!!!!!
So, thank you everyone for your awesome help and knowledge! Looking forward to learning more.
