Hi,

I have a 150G Cichild tank which I had for the last 10 + years.. I had recently put in fish into the tank - last Wednesday and all the fish were doing very well. Then since yesterday each of my older fish started dying on me.. I had almost 10+ fish crash on my almost within an hour.. I was able to get the pic of one of them here before it died.. I had tested the water and all of stats - nitrates, nitrites, pH and all are normal. After reading some forums, I have added aquarium salt 1tsp per 5G of water and increased the temp to be ~80 degrees. Anything pointers or any other suggestion?>

Without knowing more I'd say add 50% water changes every other day to your treatment. How many fish/sizes were in the tank and how many fish/sizes did you add? How long ago did you add the fish and how long before the sick ones started showing symptoms? Please describe the symptoms.

EDIT: replace any salt when you do water changes.
