    Bizzar fish deaths

    Post by zeketaz on Sun Nov 13, 2011 1:57 pm

    I did water changes on my 20 and 29 this morning. The 29 is fine I put amquel plus in it and what not. The angels are showing no distress nor are the other fish in with them.

    The 20 on the other hand has dead fish in it and everyone is gasping and floating at the surface except the molly. I forgot to put amquel in this tank. Would forgetting the amquel cause this disaster so fast? All my odessa barbs are dead. I pulled my kribs out and put them in a net in my main and they are coming back to life.

    I tested the water and everything is fine. No ammonia or nitrates and the ph is 7.6 I have to go check the heater, but the water wasn't hot. And since they were still breathing they couldn't have gotten shocked to death as the molly is still fine. scratch Question

    You have chlorine in the water. Instant death or severe damage to internal organs.

    Sad Well I was wanting to change up the fish in that tank anyways...guess I will be doing it just a tad bit sooner. After today I hope to never make this big oops again. I managed to save my kribs, 1 odessa barb, and the molly of all fish. They still don't look right and could drop any time Sad Stupid tap water....

    Yup chlorine is a quick killer.
    We have all made this mistake at one time or another, dont beat yourself up too bad over it! When I did it it was 2 tanks and $120 worth of fish.
