    I have been doing daily testing. Today's readings are 0,0,10. I did a water change a couple days ago when my nitrates where higher than 10, I would guess in the range of 15. My tap water has about 1ppm and after the water change I had a reading of .5,.25,5. I use prime as a conditioner and the next day ammonia and nitrites were back to 0. the way, does anyone know of a pic like this for nitrates? I think the card and the online chart to be crazy different.

    My original plan was to just get 1 school at a time. Bought the cpds on a whim. I knew better but their cuteness talked me into it! :p Lesson learned.

    I don't want to treat if I don't have to, but I also don't want to do nothing if I should treat. I'm not the experienced observer as others here are, so just putting out what I have seen and the meds on hand incase anyone here has any guidance.

    I think my plan will be to return the two lighter neons and remove them from the equation. I will do a good sized water change after and keep a close observation on everyone.

    With prime the ammonia shouldn't matter so long as it returns to 0 within 48 hours. I think the stress of adding a lot of fish at once contributed to the deaths. I would continue with water changes and see if problems arise. Your tank is still immature and will have swings especially when adding fish. I wouldn't worry about the neons and their color nor about ntd just yet. Don't add more fish for another 2 weeks at least and monitor their behavior - swimming and breathing normally, eating, no funny growths/markings on them, etc.

    Good luck!
