I collected some shiners (still ID'ed them yet) and have had them in a 30
gallon for a week now. I started with 5 and I am slowly loosing the fish for
no apparent reason. The all seem normal and I have watched most of them take
flake food. I will walk by and find one dead for no apparent reason!

I know shiners are not the most glamorous fish but I really wanted 3-4 in
this tank. Anyone have any ideas of suggestions?


Next question, I have 5 Brook Silversides that seem to be doing well in a 10
gallon tank. I have always filled this tank with water from the river so to
ease the adjustment. Yesterday I cleaned the tank and did a 50% water change
using tap water. I added the water slowly over about an hour and so far so

I want to eventually move these fish to my 30 gallon. I was thinking that in
order to acclimate them that if I keep doing water changes that maybe that
will help them adjust to the tap water conditions that are in the 30 gallon.
So far every Silverside I have put in the 30 have died and am thinking that
the different water conditions  are at least partly responsible.

Anyone have any suggestions or ideas? How do some of you adjust sensitive
fish to different conditions? Or am I going about this backwards and should
adjust the tank water to the lake conditions?
