Hi! I have a 10 gal aquarium that has been set up now about 4-6 weeks. I have had alot of fish in it since starting it up but have sadly lost many as well. Its a long story so I will try to keep it short. Had 6 neons,3 glowlites,2 dwarf turquoise gouramis, 2 blue tetras and 1 mystery snail. 4 neons began to swim all crazy upside down and sideways then later died. 2 glowlites appeared to have something hanging on their right gill,later died. Treated tank with fungus clear tank buddies. Ph is always 7.6 and up no matter what I do. 1 gourami got bloated and died. Purchased a red claw crab as snail had mated with itself and lots of babies resulted, only to learn they dont eat snails. Got a Clown Loach, named him Kinko. 2 days later Kinko is flashing and looks to possibly have ICK as well as one of the Blue tetras and last glowlite (Elvis) Temp is 82. Not sure how to treat safely without losing Kinko. I have Maracide on hand as well as melafix, tetra anti-bacteria medicated food flakes, fungus clear tank buddies,correct ph tank buddies, ph down,stress coat,stress zyme, aqua plus, aquarium salt, and A.C.T.. Please help me with my poor sick friends, I cant bear to lose any more fish!
