Frequent high quantity changes, good, I might need to get a BIG BLUE 55 gallon container, I saw on the web sight. I need ALOT more un-clorinated H2O.

Thanks for your diagnostic helps.

I agree with Mike!
You are WAAAAAAAAY overcrowded.
If you are planning to breed you have about 33 fish too many for a 30 gallon tank.

Welcome to fish. They are way overcrowded. You can manage this through frequent, high quantity water changes, but that is a ton of work.

Pick the best 6 or 8 and sell the rest, or go buy a 125 gallon tank. The melafix isnt a bad idea, as it my keep disease from occurring, but until you clean up their environment, you are on the road to disaster.

Good luck.

I realized I had high ammonia and NO levels in my over crowded, 8 month old ( 35 dollar sized angles) , 30 gallon tank. While making the water changes I bean noticing a red rash on the nose of the silver angles, then redness around the base of pectoral fins. This simptome is not seen on all. just 7 + fish.
Need some experienced help. I'm new to breeding. It'll be on year in February I started.

Started dosing this tank with a product from API Melafix active ingredient is Melaleuca. My dosing is less often than written. Every third day.
Fish are eating, active, (Crowded)
