So after all the media was changed out, suddenly she has fish dying left and right.
The water did clear up after she messed with the filter for a little bit (still not sure what was wrong with it...
Will definitely suggest this all to my mom. (It's her tank).
Right now she's working on the filter because it's spitting out charcoal....
When we had the water tested, we went to Petsmart and...
And she doesn't really have a set schedule.... She cleans it out maybe... every 1-3 months? She usually does about a 25-30% water change when she does.
Not sure what water...
The tank is about 15 years old. A lot of the fish in there have been in there since day one.
It was cloudy before she changed the media/cleaned the filter.
We had the water tested the other day...
My mom's cichlid tank has been cloudy for quite a while now.
She tried cleaning the filter and putting new media in it, did a 50% water change, and we even tried some of that aquarium de-clouder....

I floated them in the water for about 30 minutes and then released them in the tank.

I got some neon tetras yesterday, and I know they're pretty fragile fish, so I wasn't shocked when I (sadly) found two of them dead tonight. But when I fished them out, I noticed that they were half...
I have a quick question. The tank is next to a window, and there's nowhere else to put it. If I get a background for it, will that help decrease algae growth? It's rampant on the back wall of the...
After all of my mom's fish died in her smaller tank, she was thinking about what to do with it. I asked her if she'd be okay with me 'having' it - she excitedly agreed.
She'll get to have a pretty...
OMG! Almost killed all my fish!
I did a water test yesterday and everything was fine. I brought home three cory cats and a guppy.
They're all getting along swimmingly.
I woke up this morning...

I don't remember the exact reading on her nitrate levels. It was hot pink on the test strip, though.
She left for a week and her hubby was feeding them. Maybe he overfed them? A ton?
I'm gonna get some lil cory catfish when everything's good to go.
My mom has a pleco in her 125 gal that's pretty big, but she used to have one twice that size. I don't think a full grown one would...

I'm almost positive the guppy I saved from my mom's tank and put with my three is a female. I think someone else on the forum said that the three I have are males. The new one is quite a bit bigger,...
Just givin' a little update.
The guppies are all doing good. Don't know if I mentioned it, but since my water was deemed safe when I had it tested, I took the last surviving guppy in my mom's...

Also wanted to add that my mom took water in from her 30 gallon tank to have it tested as well. All but one of her fish (the guppy I put in my tank) died in less than 24 hours. Said her nitrates were...

My tank is 13 gallons. I used probably two cups of gravel from her tank that's probably ten years old.
I had the water tested at Petco.

I set my little tank up on Friday. I took the water in to have it tested today, and the levels were all in the 'perfect' range.
I took some gravel from one of my mom's established tanks and have...
I was reading more about cycling tanks and cleaning them, and I'm a bit confused.
While the tank is cycling, how often should I do water changes? When should I actually clean the tank?
Her main tank is full of African cichlids, and I think her levels are off in her small tank, since every single one of her fish in there (aside from a single guppy) died within a few days recently....
I asked my mom if I should start getting fish (she has two tanks) and she said to start with only a couple and gradually add them in.
I got three guppies and put them in the tank. I hope...
I work at Petco and saw that a fish tank I really liked was going on sale for 1/2 off. It's a size 13 (I assume that means 13 gallon?) Aqueon and it came with the filter, a net, a heater,...
