after holding them for years in my planted tank - i start loosing them one by one. help me to find the problem -
temp 27
amonia - 0
nitrite - 0
nitrate - 30
kh 4
ph 6.8-7
gh 10
nothing has been changed lately. after i loosed all my stock i entered another 5 - they died within 24hours too! - so its not some kind of deficiency. no predators!
in this tank i have very gentle fish like hatchet fish, gold tetra, emperor tetra, nannostomus, otocinclus ,etc. - btw - before a few months ago - i saw a few baby shrimps in the same tank.

How long have you had your nitrates up too 30ppm :?: Maybe that can be your problem the new fish you introduce might be stressing.Did you acclimate you new fish also.I have been told 10-20ppm of nitrates are good enough.Other than that i cant see any thing wrong with your setup.
