Need help with water condition

Unread postby rocky2 » Wed Dec 04, 2013 3:12 pm

Hi to start off : Earlier i used to do water changes with normal tap water and all used to be fine and fishes were all healthy but of late i had some major issues and deaths every morning i used to find one dead fish .....i tried with to ponder over various options and notice that my tap water is no more crystal clear as it used to be earlier when i poured the eater in a empty glass jar it was all white for first 15 -30 mins then slowly it cleared up.

what you guys think ,what could be the problem--Chlorine?

Note : tank has been up for almost 2 years and many a times fish done breeding and fries survived to adulthood.

Please suggest. :)

Where do you live ?

The whiteness could be due to a lot of things...one of which can be simply dissolved air.

It can be Chlorine. Is there any difference in the taste of water.

Do not use the water without knowing its test report.
Check the water parameters first.

first test ur water parameter at LFS asap,
u r using stress coat so chlorine at tap water not be causing this,
what is ur WC schedule , tank size, no of fish n filtration ?
this may be due to some decease outbreak , change ur 30-40% water regularly.

Testing at the LFS? Does your LFS do that for you? And how does it do it, some test kit? Charges?
