Please check my photos for a picture of the tank.
Hello, I'm Spud, previously known around here as the Thing Fish. Hello Michael, (if you're still poking your head in around here). Hello to Hoppy too. So, I have a 20 gallon low tech that has not had fish in it since the great tiger barb war of 2018. This aquarium is fairly well planted and the plants have a comfortable blanket of dust algae on them. (sounds worse than it actually is). On the bright side, GLA is shipping me a pro CO2 system next week. That should help. I've been wanting to do CO2 for a very long time now. So to the question, why can't I keep my guppies alive? I have very long lived fish in my other two tanks, but I am miserably failing my guppies. I'm used to generously feeding my fish, but then I learned to feed guppies sparingly, (feeding them Tetra Color Flakes), the guppies are still dying.
-- Water parameters pH 7, GH/KH 107.4, Temp 77.6, other inhabitants, 2 Khloe Loaches. Filtration 3 HOBs, air pump/air stone. Filtration and air run 24/7.
Thank you for your help.
