I have no carbon, I am using melafix at the minute so there is only biological and mechanical filtration at the minute

The tank consists of

mixed gravel
one ship wreck
one artificial plastic stone looking thing
and a piece of drift wood


What on earth is happening?!

If i post some water test results up would that point anyone in the right direction?

There's not always test kit's for the thing that's causing the problem , It's one of three thing's imo , water , poisoning or some form of lergy (bacterial etc ) ,

With only three fish left I would be thinking a strip down and re-start ?

You're other option is to sit with the three fish and see how they go ?

You need to find the cause of the problem first really ? :tu:

I've come home tonight and the one I thought I had lost yesterday, was behind the tower unit (pump/heater) going beserk and now is really still!

It's has just swam out and is staying with the other neon and seems pretty normal now? I'm a very confused man.

And I have also just read on the net that they sit at the bottom of the tank if they are stressed and about to die ... F*xk :\
