I started a 10 gallon community tank last week and i started off with 5 neon tetras, 1 african dwarf frog, 1 albino sucker fish and my betta Dragon.
The next day, 2 tetras were dead. I took water sample and dead fish back to petco and they said my water was fine. I just got a couple bad fish. I got 2 free neon tetras from them and they too died. I went back to petco only to see that their neon tetra tanks were "under observance" and you couldn't get fish from them. So not only did 4 tetras die, before they died, they infected my tank with ich and who knows what else. Now I'm down to 1 neon tetra.. My poor betta fish is miserably infected with ich. My frog is itchy too.
I went to petco again to get medicine to treat my tank and all they had me do was put aquarium salt in. Well I don't know if I have time for the salt to work IF it will work. I wasted so much money and I'm so upset that half my tank is dead or dying and it's barely even been a week since I started the aquarium.
Do you think I should return all the fish and demand my money back?
