But read other post have you tested for high ammonia to see if that is the issue?

I am so bad at this lol hopefully this one does it. And jnet the rest of the water tested perfect. Ph was al that was off from normal.. :/ I got my first fish tank a little over a year ago and knew absolutely nothing... Now I am trying to cut back from 8 running tanks!!! In this whole year + I have never had a catastrophe like that. The onlythings I lost was a bad fish from the store here and there and tons of mystery snails and the one time I put a couple of fish into water that was too cold. Bit nothing like this. I guess I was due for a good lesson lol I have to say that all around I think I have been pretty damn lucky especially with my discus.. they have lived thru some ammonia and nitrate spikes they probably shouldn't have. I had the hardest time getting their water to balance but they are all still here!!! The incendent with the cichlids taught me to pay way more attention to my tap during water changes hopefully I won't have anymore mistakes like this for a good long while!!!

ill try post your vid cause it still not working;



And yea I think a lot of the tragic events are just down to fate; like my whitespot it was just misfortune that A5 had a bad case that they Im guessing did not know about. Also I was unlucky that for some reason my fancy golfsih were more sensitive to it than say other fish might have been. Like you say we live and learn but so often its a little too harsh and brutal way of learning.
