Perhaps some heavy metal in the water that conditioner did not remove? Metals tend to be additive over time and not an immedately noticable thing. But can be fatal.

Like the canary in the coal mine, these little creatures can detect lower levels of toxins than we can....

A good time to re-organize a new fish room!

Best of luck!
Jeff.
I'm considering going to R/O water for this very reason.

R/O may be an extreme. I think RO also does not contain the right minerals or buffering. I use the Culligan Level 4 filtration for my drinking water and use it for my fish water as well. It also saves where the wife was buying bottled water all the time. More environmentaly friendly to not use all those plastic bottles.....

The level 4 removes all toxins and chemicals that you don't want....

I have it under the kitchen counter and attached to a dedicated faucet as it reduces the water flow to much for the regular faucet...

I used a faucet similar to this:

Works great for coffee too!!

Thank you Jeff! I was just about to hit that forum. Linda gave me some meds awhile back. Too bad I can't find them. Going to order some.

Yeah, I went back to the post that made me think that. I don't know why I thought he was 60. xD Maybe because you were shocked at his age in that post too.

@Mr.V I feel ya with living with your mom. Although my mom lives with me. It sucks.
