Is it ChlorGuard by any chance?

Because this product doesn't remove Chloramine from tap water.
Perhaps you have that added to the tap water recently?

SeaChems ChlorGuard doesn't neutralise Chloramine so if you've got this and 
then you add tap water with Chloramine in it then you're more or less 
killing your fish!

Get hold of SeaChem's Prime.

Prime removes chlorine, chloramine and ammonia. It will also detoxify any 
heavy metals found in the tap water at typical concentration levels.

SeaChem's Prime product is damn good, I use it myself.

3 months ago my water supplier decided to add Chloramine to my area's tap 
water. Did they tell us? Damn no.

Within weeks, news of dozens of goldfish dying hit the local newspapers. :-(

I only heard about the water change due to these deaths!

Good job I had bought Prime!

God, that sounds like an advert!
