What the heck is going on???

It seems not only do I suck at keeping plants alive but also my fish are dying off too

The water params are where they should be and there is no signs of visible disease or infection so I don't understand it. About 1 month ago I lost 3 fish and a snail all in the same week/day and now this week I have lost 2 of my female bettas and another two which look like they will be joining the big fish bowl in the sky very shortly.

I don't understand what could be causing this, any ideas?

So sorry for your losses. Maybe some kind of aquarium plauge or virus. Don't really know.

Yup, I'm positive there is nothing wrong with the water. The params were exactly where they should be.

Yea tell me about being sick of fish atm, The community tank downstairs has started dying of for no apparent reasons All water params check back fine, I've tested myself, and taken samples to 3 of my LFS's

Annoying.

Very weird, maybe it has something to do with the food? Can fish get viruses? I can't imagine what else could be going on. Especialy since they don'g show obvious symptoms of anything.

Its not the food, i've been feeding the same stuff for months now and I also give it to my males and they are perfectly healthy. All I can think of is that it must be internal or something but then there were no symptoms. I dont know its driving me mad trying to think what could have caused this lol
