    Large WC is in order.

    Are you keeping your media submerged in old tank water during water changes?

    Seems like you are losing BB somehow, this tank was cycled, and you haven't overstocked with fish

    I do keep it submerged, yes. I unplug everything while I do the wc.

    My media consisted of the piece of foam that came with my filter and also a bag of seachem "matrix".

    Two of the fake plants that I have in there used to be in my old ammonia with the soap in it. I put them in after you said my tank was cycled. I rinsed them really really well, is there any chance that they tainted my tank?

    I just did another 60% wc.

    I wouldn't think so, since you rinsed really well.

    You are dosing Prime for the entire tank amount at every WC, correct? (2 ml)

    Check params again after 24 hours

    Any recent deaths in the tank, that may have gone unnoticed?

    I highly doubt it, you've kept a keen eye on the tank, for weeks. Depending on the setup, one small death can sometimes cause serious issues, decaying flora/fauna can produce ammonia, and a new setup and cycle can be sensitive to the smallest changes in water params

    Overfeeding can cause the same issues...be sure no one is "sneaking" a feed to the fish

    Remind me which filter you use, is it a HOB filter?...Aquaclear or other?

    I use a seachem tidal 35 hob filter.

    The tank is clean and I always pulled the dead zebra danios out as quickly as possible.

    I don't think I've been overfeeding them and no one else here feeds the fish.

    The only thing I can think of is my tank maybe wasn't cycled when I added my fish. I do remember reading somewhere, that someone was talking about the nitrite test, something along the lines of if your test goes dark purple and then slowly changes to blue that it was a bad test and there were nitrites present. I wish I could remember exactly what they said, but it was something along those lines. That's what my test kit was doing, making me think that my tank was not fully cycled.

    My test would indeed go dark purple and then change slowly to blue, not stay blue the entire time like it did in the beginning when there was indeed zero nitrites present.

    I could be completely wrong about all of that, but wanted to mention it.

    I'm thinking that the tank wasn't fully cycles when I added my fish.

    Check the expiration date on your liquid test kit

    If all is good, and you are performing the tests correctly, then proceed with a fish-in cycle, as described here: http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/aqua...ad.php?t=36492

    It shouldn't take long, but every tank is different when it comes to cycling, many factors involved.

    I'm not familiar with that HOB, but many here have had great success with it...it has a sponge, do you rinse it, or just let it soak with the other media during a WC?

    Do you leave the media in the filter during a WC, or remove and submerge in a bowl of tank water?

    If you haven't already, do a ph test on your tap (a 24H sample that has been reserved), and a ph test of the tank water, 24H after a WC
