[APD] More fish die off


Not dumb question.. but maybe dumb fishkeeper!

No.. when I poured the water in.. I realized it was colder... and did not add any conditioners...I perhaps mistakenly thought that since I was only doing 5 gallons in a 45 gallon tank that it wouldn't matter.

Perhaps it did matter!

Thanks for asking.

Ok... I have to find out what is making my fish are dieing off...

DYI Co2 injected through powerhead... Moderately planted.

Ammonia 0
Nitrite      0
Ph          7.8
GH         5
KH         5
Co2        5
Test kits
Aquarium Pharmaceuticals for Ammonia, Nitrite, GH. PH
Red Sea for CO2 and KH

I changed 5 gallons of water yesterday out of a 45 gallon tank. Result? Cardinals all die... one pair of rainbow fish still alive and trying to spawn... and one Dwarf gourami building a bubble nest by himself... poor fella.

What is happening?
