    On my 125's I'll set a large Rubbermaid trash close to tank. Fill it up in evening around 76 degrees off sink. Add treatments, air stone and heater over night. In am I drain my 125 than use a small pump I have to fill tank from trash bin.

    I was doing straight from tap until I lost about 10 peacocks once. Was able to save another 10 or so by putting them into my 55 asap. I won't risk it again. I read some where about gas exchange and not enough o2 in the tap water.

    Were the tap temp and the tank temp the same when you lost the fish?

    Did you immerse the fill hose, or have it above the surface of the tank water when you filled?

    Temp was as close as possible. And hose was most likely immersed. Wasn't the first time. Few weeks before that my fish didn't seem happy and were just sitting on floor bed. I've do it many times out of the sink and still do it on my small tanks. Only seems to only to happen to my 55+ tanks.

    With the trash can method my fish are clearly happy throughout the whole wc.

    Sounds like there are excess dissolved gases in your water. Have you ever tried filling up immediately after the water is dechlorinated in the 55g trashcans (not sit overnight)?

    No, I have my 125 and 55 in same room so it's easy for me to just fill up my 55 gallon trash can on a fri,or Sat night than do my thing in am. Same goes for my other set up which is a 125, 3x 20's and a 10.

    Worse case in the 55 I use 5 gallon buckets. Fill it from tub with treatment with each fill and than pour in same goes for any of the other tanks 29 or less gallons.

    I also keep trash can semi full in garage with other setup for top off when not in use.

    The serpent I use to refill has a very large diameter pipe that goes in the tank, so the incoming water really gets churned up and I suspect a lot of O2 goes into it there. Doesn't seem to bother the fish a bit.

    Yes, adding water that is too warm to a tank can introduce super saturated gasses into the tank's water column.

    In the summertime, my "cold" tap temp can reach as high as 86-88F; I float frozen water bottles in my tanks when re-filling during a WC to keep the temp level in my tanks as much as possible....my tanks are all kept at 78F
