    dude! come on! we've helped you with a ich thread due to adding 3 tangs in a barely cycled tank! You know what the problem is! We helped you on the other thread! Sorry to be a little harsh, but you're still dealing with the ramifications of adding WAY TOO MANY FISH, way too soon!

    What died now? what are your params, what did you take back?

    I know, remember we resolved this on your other thread! you need to be feeding what you have left with garlic and selcon! you need to get every fish out of their that doesn't belong! Sorry for the tough love, but things like this don't just go away! It takes time! ALOT of time! You need to get your tank down to 1 or 2 fish and let everything calm down for a month or so!

    i have to agree with cosmo with this one.

    when its a new tank at max add one new fish a month if it is a school of fish that must be added to gather wait 2 and do more frequent water changes

    some people might think that is to long but nothing good happens fast!

    agreed. i'm a first timer, and my lfs is giving me "insight", which has proven to be detrimental to my tank
