What is "fine"? Like, is that just ammonia/nitrite/nitrate? Like, I'm talking about extreme specifics. Any super-heavy metals or anything like that. And sometimes cities do something with their tap water. I've had my water changed before (the city added something, not sure), but it was an okay transition, no trouble or anything. But yeah, I'm talking past ammonia/nitrite/nitrate. I wouldn't be surprised if there's just something in the water causing trouble, although I just don't know what...

fine = ALL water lvls are fine, i tested it, 2 pet shops tested it, this lady in my city who has been in fish for 25 yrs tested it, all said it was fine. I have mentioned this several times lol I did not mess up the water, however, the city might have, so the next water change i will used different water, i have heard bottled is good, but that will get expensive FAST

Ahhh but no I'm not talking about water levels... like, can you specifically talk about what has been tested? I'm not saying you're doing something wrong, I'm saying that I'm not getting the info I want to know about it.

I should've been more clear, I meant testing the ACTUAL tap water straight from the tap, not tank water.

Yeah, just realized I didn't even mention that.

Okay, quick recap:

Test your tap water to test for anything nasty in there. Call your city to see if they changed ANYTHING in your tap water. I'm definitely not an expert when it comes to certain specifics though, but it helps to know if anything's changed at all.

Or not so solid, what if they didn't change it? Lol, just keeping an open mind. Good luck with that!
