  1. Default new here and looking for advice


    0 Not allowed!
    Hi everyone :) I came here hoping someone could give me some pointers on my fish tank. I have a 92 gallon corner, freshwater, community tank. My fish include blind cave fish, tiger barbs, some tetra types, chinese algae eaters and a pictus cat. I would like to have mollies, neon tetras, guppies (I do have one female, but I can't keep males) a beta etc. Whenever I get a molly it dies pretty quick, neons and beta's disappear. Is there anything I can do to change this? I'm getting frustrated. I've done water changes, raised the salt levels, had my water tested several times (always fine) I don't know what else I can do. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Now, we will need some more data to sort out your problems. Can you please give us:
    Water parameters (GH, pH, temperature).
    Water test data, meaning ammonia, nitrite and nitrate.
    Water change schedule (how much water and how often), and which water conditioner.
    What substances are going into the tank? You mention salt, how much? Anything else?
    How long has this tank been running?
    Do you have live plants?

    While waiting for the above, I will just point out some issues with the fish mentioned. Some must have moderately hard or harder water (molly in particular, guppy too though not as significant), others are better in soft water and do not tolerate salt. Knowing your GH and pH will help with this.

    Betta are not community fish, and should not be added to a tank like this one. There is bound to be trouble.

    More when we have the info requested.

    Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

    Welcome

    How about

    1. don't mix salt and freshwater species
    2. Start a seperate thread, post a picture and some water test results.
    3. Make sure you have your properly identified.
