    Default What happened to my CRS?

    I found one of my CRS died on last 3 days...and yesterday i found another dead body in my tank again... I do water changes and parameter checking and get the following parameter:

    pH6.8
    GH: 7
    KH: 1
    NH3/NH4: 0
    Temp: 25-27C

    My parameter should be no problem right? but how come recently CRS died so frequently?
    and last 2 days, i found one of the CRS pregnant... those dead CRS are adult, and the CRS babies all seem like ok and normal... I wonder what happen to my CRS? thanks for you guys helps....

    P/S: i added in bamboo charcoal into my CRS tank last week, is it the main reason that caused to my CRS died?

    bro, how about your no2 n no3?
    i dont think bamboo charcoal will cause the death of your crs.

    I did not check the no2 and no3..
    Ok, i will try to measure on it...

    My tank is 12 inch and around 25L, inside got around 15-18 CRS... is this also a reason that caused my CRS died?
