Description: Set up Nov 12, 2006
This is my first Brackish tank. I have had 5 freshwater tanks (55 gallon) in the past, but no tank for 7 years.
UPDATE April 16, 2007
All of my fish died today. I think it was toxic levels of Nitrates and Nitrites. The test kit showed extremely high levels. I added very high. When I came home from work they were all dead. I feel really bad. I tried to take good care of them. I don't know what caused it. I did a 1/3 water change and a good cleaning a few days ago. I changed the filter cartidge and vacuumed the gravel. How could they die so fast? What did I do wrong?
Advice: Fish tanks are expensive and/or time consuming to set up, Once they are established, they take a small amount of consistent care.
Your fish depend on you. Be good to them and they will make you happy.
Fish Kept: 4 Monos, 2 White Tipped Shark Cats and a Green Scat.
Corals/Plants: Plastic plants because it is brackish and my fish are known plant eaters.
