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...

Maybe it was the hose? That sucks because it looks so good. I'm happy your fish survived. Maybe just get a new filter for each section and clean the tank really well and try again?

^^^ the clear hoses are aquarium hoses for airlines and the garden hose is defo not toxic. they are made for water. lots of water.
im pretty sure its the dividers.... tank was thoroughly cleaned, nothing from previous owner re-used. silicone was aquarium sealant.
the mesh or binders are the culprids....
guess ill strip down the tank and replace mesh, should i find other stuff. crafting mesh doesnt exist here in ireland.... like alot of basic stuff.

sorority is done though. looks savage. girls are happy out.

and lil sick ghost moved into old sorority and is also happy out.

thats what i thought first but id rather sell it and get my money back... dont want to spend any money and more fish.... it stops here. im actually sick of it all.
fish are not like cars; you cant park them up and leave them if they're broken. they are animals that suffer. and i cant stand it. i probably aint right for keeping fish. rather go back to my car then and waste money there than making fish suffer
