I recently did a dry start method with Glosso seeds and everything went well. Once i had a good thick 1.5inch layer I added water then a couple days later added 6 Mollies. Now 1 week later all the fish have died and I'm getting patches of dead glosso.
It's a brand new 144L tank with 1400L/H pump, 9W UV
Light, 55w A901 Chihiros 8000K 8.200 Lumen LED
injection that I built myself.
I tested the water every day and the pH hovered around 7.1 and Ammonia, Nitrites and Nitrates were all 0ppm.
I fed the fish once a day in the morning. I also added some java moss super glued to the spider root, some needle leaf Java Fern and some dwarf sagittaria which I pre dipped in 1:20 ratio of bleach for 3 min before soaking in an anti chlor solution before adding to tank.
My rocks I collected from a local gorge but I soaked them in a chlorine solution and scrubbed them clean and let sit in the sun for a week before I added them to the tank. The wood I purchased from a fish store.
I guess there's a lot of potential causes from all the new equipment but I was hoping someone out there may have some advice for me.
