Yes, I lost just over a grands worth, of high end imported goldfish doing  water changes. Nearly lost all the cichlids and tropicals as well( catfish, got knocked hard ) , but seeing what happened to the goldfish ( stone cold dead, in under ten minutes ), I changed tactics. I drip fed all the tanks, and doubled up on the prime. Observing behavior, during the whole process. Dripped the water from a height, breaking the surface tension and letting some of the gas off. Also, many fish got eye damage. I feel ya, I'm not impressed.

@johnbettathis might be a silly question but have you tested for pH, ammonia, nitrite and nitrate, hardness of the tap water before doing a water change to see what you are dealing with?

 

 

yes mate i did test every thing and it came up all great numbers for every thing and it isnt silly at all that was the first thing i all ways do before any water changes but thank u

Hey @johnbetta

I am sorry to hear about your challenges. I think you should have a chat with these guys https://www.seqwater.com.au/contact-us

If the water quality is bad, they might be able to investigate and get to the bottom of it. Good luck with it !

 

 

thanks i will get right onto that mate thanks again mate that should help me

I don't think you will be waiting to  long for it till rain, you guys Always get rain down your way   in the SE corner:), just a nothing thing, do you add any salt to your tanks when doing water changes? I know there guppies,  but I used to add salt to my guppies when I was on Gladstone town water.
