Are you sure it isn't your water? I know you said something about ph and what not...but are you positive they didn't change something at the place they treat it?

Who knows. I know where they get it from,I will have to call and see if i can get a water quality report. Because something funky is going on. I know all my fish cant have the same issue,seems a bit coincidental. And my poor Bella,who was gone in less than weeks time from when I saw she was not acting right.

We did have nothing but rain all of june though,so maybe that did something to our tap water??

I know we had very few days here in WV in June where it didn't rain. We had a lot flooding what not. I'd get a water quality report...it's just to strange that they are all having the same issue. Maybe switch to bottled spring water until you find out what is going on with the water issues in your area.....

How many gallons do you use in a typical water change for all your fishies?

RO water = Reverse Osmosis water? Or am I thinking of a completely different thing?

If I remember correctly, it seems like another forum member had issues with her tap water and had to call the water company. It seems like it was an ammonia issue but I'm not sure.I wish my memory was better! lol
