Sorry for your losses guys, for me the heat is actually helping mesmer regain his eyesight (cataracts? Milky eyes?) But I guess we aren't all so lucky
Nah, it shouldn't have. Prime's ammonia protection starts evaporating right away and is gone in a day or two. Aging water just wastes Prime.the tap water's quality is swinging wildly, and it all of the sudden started coming out of the tap at 1 PPM ammonia. Priming it and churning it in a water aging tank for a couple days did nothing to clear it up (which it SHOULD have), and I didn't know the problem until I started losing fish.
That's the reality of fish auctions. They're bagged and left to sit around on the table all day.(the guppies pissed me off ... whoever brought them didn't bother to supply a heater or a bubbler, and they were dying.
Seachem has proprietary info; they say so. Sometimes they admit they don't know. Sometimes their explanations and answers are opaque or ambiguous, mostly because of their apparently weak language skills. But they try. They're set up for it.What is scary is when the company cannot provide an answer, suggesting either a secret (fine, but tell us it is a secret) or they don't actually know...
Don't they go through worse in shipping? How do they survive that? Was it very cold in there?The guppies were stuck in a tank with access to outlets in the IBC store, rather than bagged and waiting. Giving them basic care would have been easy. Everyone was bothered by it, but no one had the tools to do anything for them.
