    Sorry to hear of your loss...if the barbs were the only ones affected, maybe they were weak or diseased stock from the LFS (?)

    Did you buy your other fish from the same place?

    Possibly. I've gotten all of my fish from the same LFS, it's the only local shop with a decent selection and I rarely ever see dead fish in any of their tanks. I'm going to take the dead ones back to the store as they offer a store credit or replacement within 14 days and will test my water for me. Hopefully it's just a fluke as I quite enjoyed watching the barbs swim around.

    Sorry for the loss. Agree with Slaphppy, they could be sick or die from stress

    Found a third dead this morning. Taking them all back to the LFS, as well as bringing a separate water sample so they can test it while I'm right there. Will be picking up a new test kit as well so I can do this at home.

    I think Slaphppy got it right! Might have been just a bad batch of fish. You seem to be experienced enough to know to acclimate so I definitely don't think it was your fault. Hopefully the LFS will give you a refund or replacement!
