so i just bought a new 20 gal tank
added sand let it cycle for a week, and i put my existing driftwood in my old tank to let the beneficial bacteria bloom


today i changed the of the 20 gal water albeit abit roughly since i has washed the sand the week before.

sand cloud appeared but i thought it was just sand cloud
so i added my fishes inside.

3 cardinal tetras started swimming strangely, so i moved all my fishes back to the original tank

all 3 died within hours today, red gills, bleeding internal?

- what went wrong? ammonia spike up from undisturbed sand below ?
- my german blue ram mostly dwelled at the bottom of the new tank seemingly ok and active. he’s still active and ok now
- my guppies were mostly swimming on top at the new tank

- what can i do to my 20 gal tank now? when can i move new fishes inside


Hi, Aquatics enthusiast here, been keeping fish for over a year now. I have 135/50/20/10 gallon tanks all freshwater.

I am sure you heard this before but 1 week is not enough to cycle a new tank.

If you had a tank already established, and moved a sponge filter/wiid/ornaments into the new tank, 1 week would be fine.

Next time, buy cheap Zebra danios, like 10 for a 20 gallon, let them cycle it for you, thats like 10 bucks worth of fish, if they die, so be it, not a loss, and you will cycle the tank in the process


start over, dont quit

You said you changed water? How much of the tank did you change? 25% water change is normally good done weekly.

just tested the water

0 ammonia
10 mg / L Nitrate or 10 ppm


oh fuck i got the order wrong
should have bought nitrite tester too


i guess water change should be able to reduce the nitrate level and then i could add fish yeah?

also bought easy starter.
can i mix them both now?

I would do as sobble said and grab some zebra danios, its a pretty reliable technique with minimal cost.
