i got a 30 litre fish tank in march and added 2 fish 2 weeks after having the tank, water was tested and levels were fine. About 2 month after having the 2 fish 1 started floating and generally not looking very well and then it died and then about 1 month late the other did the same. I then did a water change and was told levels were fine (i went to a different aquarium) and purchased 2 new fish. 1 has now died and the second is on its way out... what am i doin wrong!! please help!! thanx
After 2 weeks your tank wouldn't have been ready for fish. Unfortunately you can't trust what most shops tell you
A fishless cycle can take up to 6 weeks and it's best to get your own test kit because a lot of shops will just tell you it's 'fine' without telling you any details. Water quality is very very important to your fish's health. Have a read of this and it will tell you more- http://www.fishkeeping.co.uk/articles ... hless-cycling-article.htm
What sort of fish do you want to keep? 30 litres isn't big enough to keep fish tbh, your fish would be much easier to look after in a larger tank. If you want some smallish tropical fish (easier and cheaper than keeping goldfish if you plan properly) then you could have a 60 litre tank. If you want to get more goldfish then they will need a very large tank long term as they grow quite big.
It's worth starting a new thread about this, you will get loads more replies that way

Hi I have two leopard danios and one pearl danio in a 35 litre tank. There have been no problems so far 😊 I just check on my fish and my pearl danio has a small cut on its left hand side. I don't know how this has happened and will it be ok ? Thanks for the help.
