    Hi guys,

    I've got a 225litre fully cycled planted tank. Ammonia, Nitrates 0, Nitrites 20, PH 7.5. PPM 4.

    All my x-ray tetras (40) are all alive and well. I've also got 3 mountain shrimps and 20 RCS inside surviving + lots of pesky snails.

    My guppies though, they have been dying one by one without any apparent reason.

    Things I have tried:
    Adding crushed corals to my filter system to add hardness
    Added air pump to excite water surface
    Turned off my CO2 to see if CO2 was too high but still got deaths

    Anyone have similar problem? Guppies should be super hardy fishes but somehow I cant seem to get them to stay alive!

    Filtration is built in to top of aquarium, I've got foam and granules. Any help is super appreciated!

    some guppies dun like strong current flow... i see that you have a wave maker... could it be too strong for the guppies?

    Were the guppies previously quarantine before adding to the community? If got quarantine, then how long.

    Wave maker for this large tank should be fine? Almost 4 feet tank. 225 litre? Although it doesn't look like 4 feet tank, I must say.
