right, i give up
the divided tank is toxic. something is in it that kills fish within seconds... i checked all labels of the products i used to divide it, they were either marked safe for children, non-toxic or harmless for fish... but OBVIOUSLY something went wrong!
i checked all water stats. they are all perfect..
friend of mine, and aquarium pro recommended stuff that speeds up the cycling process. add it, leave filter running for 2-3 days, and add fish. done. he uses the stuff for 40 years and told me how to do it! so that cant be it.
first, draco stopped breathing and sank to the ground and layed on his side!!! i got a net and shifted him into a glass with normal tap water, conditioned. he gasped and survived! i had already given up on him!
then maehk followed! same symtoms!!! quickly got him out of there too! i immediatly got out salmon too then....
guess thats the end of the divided tank!
the sorority is grand. no problems at all.
girls are flying around having loads of fun!
i give up on it now though. gonna empty out divided tank and sell it again...
