I'm so disillusioned


Hey everyone
Okay I've been in the hobby for years and back in the day I was clueless. I would over stock change the water once a month and never test. From what I remember I had very few problems. Fast forward I have a 75 gallon tank with a fluvial 405 a fluvial 206 a aquclear hob 110. I do 25 gallon water changes every week. I clean my filters regularly as well as test every week. I haven't added any new fish in over 6 months and everyone was doing fine until 2 weeks ago one of my angel died for no apparent reason. I figured since the water was testing fine it was just fluke. Yesterday I noticed a couple of white spots (not like ick more protruding) and her poop is white. I started tetra parasite guard today. I just didn't understand. I feel like what more can I do?
I just want to hang my head down
Patrick

I think the problem is that everything was going so good for so long you thought you had it under control when in fact, and you have to know this if you've been in it this long, we are never really in control. The best we can hope for is a rest period between battles. I'm sorry but I'm clueless about your Angles and I would of started some sort of parasite treatment like you did but I do know you and your tank will get through it. Hope someone has a better idea of what is going on with your tank.
