Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I'm a biologist with a special interest in fish. I'm sorry to hear that you are losing fish. Some additional information will be useful. Have you tested the water? If yes, what numbers did you get in parts per million (ppm) for ammonia and nitrites? Do the sick fish have any sores, red streaks, etc. on their fins or bodies? Thank you.
