Morning,
So today I woke up and fed my fish as usual, however nobody moved to eat except for my goby. All my fish are stagnant in the tank. I don't know what's going on. I did a partial water change yesterday. I immediately checked my water parameters and they are as follows:
Amm - 0
Nitrite - 0
Nitrate - 15ppm
PH - 8.0
Phos - 0
Salinity- 1.023
Tank size 75g

Also I added new dryrock to tank last night. Don't know if that's a factor or not

I've researched and read that alot of people run high Temps in their tank to keep down diseases. So I've been doing that and running a air stone to make up for the lack of o2. Also I've been feeding twice a day and doing water changes 30% every week

Temp way too high as gradually your oxygen has been decreasing. That’s a lot of livestock in a short time
Are you using RODI water or tap water from faucet?
A lot of Zero readings. Are you by chance using API TEST KIT?

recommended:
Temperature 77-79
Salinity 1.024
Ph 8.0-8.3
Ammonia < .03
Nitrate < .04
Phosphate < .04
Add air stone if able to and increase oxygen

High temps cause issues too, the main fish diseases are not cured by high heat.

I'm using RO water. And I'm currently using an airstone. And my test kit is API

As mentioned api is a very unrealiable test kit I'd go off my intuition compared to using that. Do you have a grounding plug? Do you feel a tingle when u touch the tank water.

So what do you think about running carbon as a filter for your aquariums?
