The water doesn't contain the bacteria that keeps a tank cycled. The bacteria lives on surfaces and in the filter. I did keep everything in tank water including the filter plus I am dosing with seachem stability just as backup.

thanks guys!
when it rains it pours, my poor guys have developed ich. Ugh, started salt treatment today, hopefully it works and is cleared up in a few weeks.

Sorry to hear about your other tank and your fish getting ick! That's terrible.


If you always do what you've always done, then you'll always get what you've always got.

thanks guys, things are not getting much better, Ive lost 4 tetras and all of my MTS, I have no idea what is killing them, as I havent even added all of the salt that was suggested to help with the ich, it is a very low/moderate amount of salt and I cannot for the life of me figure out what is going on. My kuhlis seem to be the only ones unaffected.

Sorry to hear about the snails. I doubt the salt did them in as they easily adapt to live in brackish (salty) water.
Moving the tank might have caused an ammonia spike? Did you check?

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.
