No kids, its in the back room of the house and no one goes in. In fact, no one is home all day long. I live in Los Angeles so the water here is Very treated, I get it from the tap which runs through the house purifier and then dechlore it. I wish I had taken a picture of it but I was too worried about getting it out. It looked like someone had literally poured red dye into the tank. It was clear, not opaque, and there were some fine bubbles on the surface and red scum along the edges at the waterline.
Its a 10 gallon sick tank with two blue gouramis that I'm treating for acute bacterial infection. They're both doing wonderfully, lesions healed and hearty appetite so hopefully this wont be a setback.
Its a bare-bottomed 10 gallon tank with a HOB filter rated for 40 gallons. It has a filter bag filled with ammonia pure and no carbon (for the meds). It has a small heater, and an air stone. It also has a handful of floating water spite? (some leafy bright green plant, lacy fronds with long roots that hang down) to help with keeping the water clear.
The only thing I can think of thats red is their food, but they always eat everything and there was no food build up.
