Cleaning Water Softener Tank

cleaning water softener tank
I have one gallon fresh water tank of 60 years and my fish become more viscous and die?

I recently bought two Tiger Guam barbs 8 and 1 red tailed shark I also had a sucker fish are all dead except guam's. When others are dead, I noticed they were covered with mud clear. They do not all die at the same time it's been over two weeks. I added water softener to protect their ladders and cleaned the filter. I also replaced 25% of the water. I do not want my two fish still die, but I'm afraid to do something for the water, afraid I'll kill them. Does anyone have ideas on what this might be and how I can fix it. PS I bought the fish from Petco and they told me to add water to mine when I transferred fish. I've never had these problems before. I'll get water tested today. I also want to spend my tank this witch would mean emptying but I know that may shock the fish ideas on how to do it.

Did you cycle your water before adding fish? Have you tested your water? 95% of all the problems with the fish, disease and death are the result of poor water quality. Fish and do not just die. We kill them with our negligence and ignorance. While buying sick fish is always an option, especially when it is bought in chain stores, which should never do is usually a higher probability that there are reservoirs of water "quality the house that killed them. Changing the water rights now would be the best thing you can do and you have to do a water change of 50% immediately. You should test your water every day while biking and make changes 20-30% water, most likely, every day, to keep your settings water in a safer play until the water cycle. But the problem is, you are in a very difficult place. Your fish are sick because of bad water and you need to get rid of the bad water, but you must also treat your fish. Medicating your fish stop tank cycling, because it kills all bacteria good with evil, but you must take medication first. Once you heal, you will then begin your cycle. Slime your fish diseases. Different types of parasites as Costia (Ichtybodo) Cyclochaeta (Trichodina), and Chilodonella can cause these symptoms, but they are treated the same way. Once the disease has spread to the gills, it is at its most lethal, and could be fatal to fish concerned. You need to take medication with a product containing formaldehyde. I think doing research and reading on the nitrogen cycle, how although the cycle of a tank, how to make changes to clean water and how to clean a tank, filtration and proper techniques appropriate power. Do not buy any more fish until you get your water stabilized and that it is safe. There is a saying, "Taking care of water and the fish take care of them." It is true. Do not move your tank at this time. Get the treated fish and return to good health and have fully recycled water, or, unfortunately, wait until they die, before moving tank. Save as much of the old, the water cycled in buckets and put all your plants, gravel, filter and decorations in the water saved, and your fish. Keeping the water old and all these things keep moist beneficial bacteria lives that you do not need to recycle. Move the tank, put everything back, and you have a tank fully recycled and ready to go with very little stress fish.

Will remove all soap residue from my resisted I use to clean my aquarium?

When you change the water in my aquarium I use a bucket to transfer water. I accidentally cleaned with soap today. I know that even small traces of soap can be lethal to fish, so I put the bucket in the dishwasher and had performed twice (no soap of course) to try to flush. Is it good or should I just buy another bucket?

fine. lol just try not to do it again. but again it depends on the sensitivity your fish are in the water and there surroundings. Tho I think your fine. ~ Ashley
