Well that sucks
Woke up this morning to see most of my fish and shrimp dead. Overnight I for some reason had a nitrite spike(.5 mg/l), and lost about 10 shrimp, and 10 rasboras.Ammonia was still 0. I also had a very nasty film on the surface of the water. My otos and cories seemed unaffected. My last 2 rasboras are at the water surface, I don't know if they are eating the film or gasping for air. I did a 50% water change, cleaned up most of the film with a paper towel, and adjusted my spraybar to allow more surface agitation. I just added plants and fish last weekend, but I still don't know how this happened.
