    With a little ammonia in the tank it might have just stressed those fish out enough to cause the deaths. Maybe they were older and couldn't handle the small spike like the others. Either way i would watch the rest of your fish closely for a couple of weeks just to make sure this isn't the start of a mass die off.
    I’ve been feeding the same way for 6 months now. A pinch of generic flakes a pinch of spirulina which the danio and serpae eat within a minute or two and then once all the lights are out I put in about 2 pellets broken into pieces for the cories to get. Then I usually skip one day per week and then once a month I skip 2 days when we are at the hospital. This seems correct right?

    Yes, that is not overfeeding..I actually only feed every other day now, for several months, fish are fine

    What is the ph in the tank, and the ph of your tap after a sample sits for 24H?

    I haven’t tested ph in months but I know it’s high. Like 8-8.2. Last checked very stable though too in the tank because my water always sits in a tank and circulates for a week before pumping it over into the tank at water change.

    When I get the chance I can test it again tho.

    And what exactly will I be looking for?

    Like to what end am I testing?

    If the ph is 8.5 at the tap...what?
    If the ph is 7 at the tap...what?
    Same for holding tank, main tank. What is the purpose of the test?

    I’ve been told time and time again stable ph is more important than a certain ph.

    Because if it dropped dramatically, for whatever reason, your BB could die off

    Just trying to cover all of the bases regarding sudden ammonia readings, that I can think of

    Copy that, like I said I was just trying to understand the premise behind testing. So the theory isthat if the PH dropped dramatically that it could kill BB...

    Based on my past experience the ph out of the tap was in the 7 range and then in the 8s in the tank so t actually rose in the tank after a while but I can test again.

    Here is one other variable that I thought of. The same week that the ammonia spike occurred was the week that I began using sechems flourish to assist with plant growth. Think that could cause anything?

    It's a good thing to test it out, but with the limestone bed we sit on the PH of the water around her usually stays pretty stable.
