Hello everyone hope all your tanks are in good status..... I'm a newby at this for the last six months. I started off with a 10g and almost give with the saltwater due to out of the roof levels of nitrite and nitrate. I had no live though. Onnce I got a 3lbs piece the water chemistry finally got acceptable. Then I came acrossed a 50g tank with dual hang on the back filter with oak stand at a yard sale. By the end of two months my tank had about eight fish(diamond goby,hawkfish,dottyback,bicolor blenny,spotted tail blenny, clownfish,lawnmower blenny,and a angel coral fish along with a family of brittle stars that came in a live rock,two shrimp,emerald crab, sallylightfoot crab (I think is the name)and a couple of hermit crabs). About 25lbs of live rock. I'm working on getting more of that. Water chemistry good but about .5 Ammonia. Any suggestions on getting getting this lower. I've been using stress coat by API. Up to about 2wks ago all my fish were fine. One day I woke up and my diamond goby had a body slime on his head area,cloudy eye and white dots(I think ICK)on his body. He deid that day. Over the next 2wks a fish would stop eating get cloudy eye,body slime and die within 1-2 days of these symptoms. Only two of my fish had the white spots with the other symptoms. I'm really fustrated at this point. My husband and my son Cole age ten were really enjoying the fish. Now I lost my last one yesterday. I don't know what happened. I treated with ICH-X x4days no improvement, then Melaflix and primaflix (API products) I wonder if I should of used an antibiotic. I don't want to give up but its getting exspensive. I can't afford an RO unit right now...and may not ever get one if I can get by with just buying RO water. Now I use tap and I know this isn't the best for keeping a healthy tank. How many of yall use tap water? Can anyone help me with this situation on maybe what killed all my fish in a matter of 7 seven day? This is enough.....This is my story.
