    Adding 3 fish at once in a 30gal could cause quite a shock to the system. How much is the surface agitation on the water? Is the tank covered by chance?

    the tank is covered and I have been running copper for over 6 months. What other parameters do you need to see? Everything else is fine besides pH a little high

    what do you mean by surface agitation? Sorry but I am new to the forums. I have been running this tank for about 1.5 years but have never used the forums before.

    How much is the water moving at the surface. It's important to have enough agitation at the surface so the carbon dioxide/oxygen gas exchange can take place.
