So my buddy MonsterFisk brought over a PAR meter....be right back I'll be crying in the corner.

My par in the front is 23 T_T. Guess who really wants an added light fixture now?

really that's it? I would have thought it to be much more.

I figured something was up with that since all my foreground plants take forever to grow.

Next time I get a t5-ho I'm doing like 8 bulbs

Sometimes, I really hate this hobby. This week has been one of those times. My folks did the usual 50% water change this week, and something went wrong. Apparently there was extra chlorine or something in the tap, because on Tuesday all of the congo tetras died. When that happened a 50% WC was done, and a 3rd Eheim 2217 was placed onto the tank that had extra carbon and nitrozorb. Then, either late Tuesday or early Wednesday, my threadfin acaras died, my rainbow fish died, my EBJD died, and a rainbow cichlid died, as well as two adult SAE I had added to the tank a several weeks ago and my female super red Bristlenose. I do not know if the male Bristlenose is still alive, and the retropinnis bichir hasn’t been seen (however I can only find him at 3am when I do find him, I’ll assume he isn’t dead unless he is found dead).

I’ll do a sad, sad update once the tank settles down, but I’m upset. My folks and I have been doing everything we can to settle the tank down, and I’d like to thank my next door neighbor and my friend MonsterFish for coming over and trying to help me figure out what’s going on. I’m hoping that the water changes needed to lower the ammonia doesn’t do any more damage (ammonia now reads at 1-2ppm). I can almost guarantee I’ve lost some plant species as well…in that regard I have no idea what is or is not left.

Seriously, when random mishaps like this happen, I can really start to hate this hobby T_T

For now though, I’m just going to dump all my old photos of the tank that haven’t been posted since the last update.




























God my hearts breaking looking at all these T_T

such sad news I lost a bunch of fish once to what we could only assume was a big chlorine spike in our tap. It killed my 5 perfectly behaved yoyo loaches, and most of my big schools of lemon tetras and rasboras. That was years ago and I am just now getting the big itch to get things up and going again to my high standards. I only do small water changes now and have been strongly thinking about setting up some system where I can store my water ahead of time and pump it into the tank. Might be over kill, but I also have pH issues (tank 7.5 and tap 8) and want some more tanks with fish that would want low 7 or high 6 too. Water can be so annoying huh?

Man, I hear yah, its hard to come back after these sort of things. Oddly, my pH tends towards the lower side, I wouldn't do well with anything that required hard water I can tell you that much.

I'll post an update on this tank at some point...its nothing to look at right now, but I have plans, because I refuse to let this tank go down or go to waste.

And I know there are plenty of rainbow fish peoples on the rainbowfish forum from New York.

One thing to consider is that since they are such aggressive eaters they would not mix well with passive fish.
Hi there!
What rainbowfish forum are you talking about? I'd love to be put in touch with some breeders... very interested in buying in bulk!
