    as a process of elimination i have removed the rocks as i seem to recall someone had suggested that they were not a great choice
    i also removed some fish too
    so over the next week i will monitor the situation to see if it has any affect on the ph

    your NO3 of 0 is interesting – there should be some NO3. What about ammonia? Have you tested for this?

    When did you set the tank up, how big is it (dimensions not volume) and what fish have you/did you have in there? When did you lose the last fish? Have you got any full tank shots, some times helps people spot something obvious!

    How do you clean the filter?

    All more questions I’m afraid mate but hopefully we can get some answers!

    no3 = 0
    no2 = 0
    nh3/nh4 = higher than 0 lower than .25
    ph = 8 !!!!!!!
    gh = 16
    kh = 3
    cl2 = 0

    only ph is different. it appears to be higher when the rocks taken out
    tank has been set up now for about 5 months

    dimensions of tank 31″x13″x18″ juwel rio 125

    2x fluval 303
    air pump feeding 2 stones
    temp 25 – 26
    water change once a week about 25-30%

    last fish to die was last week a danio

    i removed all remaining danio and 2 ancistrus

    fish in tank at minute

    not going to do the latin coz it really takes me a lot of time finding them

    3 dwarf neon gourami
    2 honey gourami
    10 black neon tetras
    6 emporor tetras
    2 clown loach
    2 A. panduro
    2 kribensis
    1 cupid cichlid
    6 corydoras sterbai
    2 corydoras aneas (albino)
    3 red eye tetras
    1 german ram balloon strain
    2 ancistrus
    2 black widow tetras

    all the fish are small the biggest is neon gourami at about 2 1/2″

    if ive missed out any info let me know

    ammonia is a little higher than normal but i did a filter clean last night
    i usually clean a filter every week as i have 2 externals i thought this was the best way to do it
    substrate is cleaned once a month

    thx for all your help

    Firstly what type of test are you using?

    Secondly, your tank is really overstocked and you should consider upgrading or getting rid of fish.
