speaking honestly

it's not as hard as you think it is, I came in as a total noob about 8 months ago. the hardest part is just getting started with rock sand and picking your flow and light to what you want.

what issues are you having currently?

I had a 75 gallon tank with a scammer that hangs off hangs I had a 75 gallon tank with a skimmer that hangs off the back. Waited six weeks added fish they're all doing well for the first couple of months and then all the fish died I was checked in my water every week they told me all my waters were well within parameters. So I've decided to start all over I purchased 125 gallon tank with a sump filtration System hoping that will work better should start adding fish in another five weeks.

sometimes stuff like that just happens . did they have any white spots on them at any point before they died?

also what kind of fish were they?

I had to clown fish a hippo tang a yellow tang a queen angel and a fire angel. They did get white spots and I think the hippo tang had black spots also. With this new tank I also started up a quarantine tank which I did not have before. I was adding one fish a week I don't know if that was too soon or not

the white spots would indicate that they probably had Ich.

the quarantine tank is a good thing to have also meds for ich as well just in case you need them.

Definitely need a quarantine tank for tangs, especially hippos.
Did you add all the fish at once? It could have been too much bio load
 

Have you ever been accused of talking to much about your tank?
