not wasting anyone's time it's their choice to contribute their thoughts..whenever...i didn't say "I AM IN NEED OF HELP ASAP!" and I just came back from camping.take a sample into a lfs. you have not answered many of the questions that will help us clarify for you.....dont waste peoples time by not responding.
glad they r doing better. its just these r basic points that start the process of elimination and you will find when fish r in distress people tend to want to help quickly as even 1 day can make a difference between life and death of a fish.
you have replied twice and still didn't answer re cycling time. any way fish r doing better. sorry you lost your albino.
I have two Plecos about 4in. , 1 jewel cichlid 3-4 in and the other one is just 1 in', 5 red empress all 1.5 inches, 2 angelfish about 2in lenght, 3zebra cichlid 2", 1 parrot fish 2 in".plants shouldnt make a difference to the fish. my guess is it is still cycling. if you used the filter from the 10g there may not be enough good bacteria established to support a 30 g.
usually it takes a month to cycle. could be an ammonia or nitrite spike. you really need a sample tested. how many fish and what size. did you move substrate over as well? when did you add the fish and did you add anything to the water
if you can. i would post lf established filter media or squeezings .....also you have a mix of south american and african cichlids. africans like the water hard and alkiline, the others softer and more neutral to acidic. did yo buy your fish from members on here? you may ask them what perameters they kept thiers at. did you take down the 10g altogether/?
