Re: Follow up-- Need help/opinions
Did the sunnies die before or after the water change? If your water supply
is chlorinated and you mix the new water with dechlor in the tank, an 80%
change will still expose the fish to a good dose of chlorine/chloramine
before the dechlor is completely mixed and reacts. I have lost fish this
way. Now I try to keep my water changes down to 30% at a time. I will
wait maybe 15-30 min if I want to change more of the water the same day.
I have had trouble with flagfish. I think they are host to a lot of
protozoal parasites. Captive raised stock would, hopefully be cleaner.

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach him
to use "the Net" and he won't bother you for weeks.
