So about a week ago I had a glass catfish get sick and dye (first thing to ever dye in my 150g for the 3 months Ive had it running. So I got another and did a 25g weekly water change. Now another is biting the dust... so something must be off, there insides turn red and they swim around all sick. There stomach stays black but other stuff is red, they look kinked and contorted sometimes too.
Also sense the water change or maybe the day before visibility in the tank has been dropping I can hardly make out the filter intakes through 24" of water.
I have 4 T5 HO
lights on for 8h then 2 on for 3 more, 1 java fern, 3 cripts and some jungle val. 9 rainbowfish, 4 4" clown loaches, a 4" pictus cat, a pleco and 6 soon to be 5 ghost glass catfish.
I dose 10ml excel, flourish, and use Fluval water conditioner and bacteria, I have a Cobalt EXT, whisper 60 and AC
110 with 250ml purigen on it.
