    The small ammonia spike appeared two days after I added the fish, wen through about a day of a small nitrite spike then it was gone which caused an increase in nitrates which I resolved with a water change.Did another water change about a week later which is the last one I did. At that time nitrates were 10 ppm, water change dropped them to five ppm. Rest of the tests were good.

    As for the filtration, I rinsed the Aqueon filter cartridge gently in removed tank water and reinstalled it. I also have a Hydro-Sponge IV(80 gallon rated) in the tank that's been running for four weeks. Plenty of BB.

    and your water parameters are steady now? I would test daily for about a week. sounds like your good now....dunno much about aqueon filters...if you dont have enough turnover that might be an issue as well.

    I don't think the small ammonia spike caused the death, fish was fine until night of the water change. I have eight Corys and a Pleco in there that have been fine. Between the Aqueon 50, a Fluval U1 and the Sponge, I'm turning over enough water.

    I have 2 aquean filters. 1 on my 30 and 1 on my 90 to supplement the canister. I swear by both of them so, no, I don't think it's the filter

    Starting to wonder if it wasn't just a problem with those 2 fish - perhaps they were weak to begin with in a way that wasn't visible to you

    Probably just bad stock. It happens... I can attest to that.

    When in doubt, ask yourself... W.W.L.S (What would Lee Say)?
