    Hi all, hoping somebody may have any ideas.  Over the last month I have lost 3 angelfish and 6 neon tetras in a fully planted, established tank. Substrate; gravel,  rocks and driftwood thoroughly sterilised, cleaned and cured before tank set up  There have been no additions to the tank, and no visible signs of disease or illness.  The tank was fully cycled and has been up and running for 6 months.  Water parameters are as close to perfect as I can get them.  I have just been losing fish one at a time over the last 4 weeks and I am at a loss to explain it.  Any ideas would be appreciated.
