    Sudden Nerite Die Off

    Hey guys and gals - need you help with a mystery. Came home last night to at least 10 of my 20 + nerites in the big tank lying dead on the open sand. I can only assume there are others in the plants.

    Ammonia and nitrites all at zero, nitrate totally acceptable, CO2 is normal, fish seem unaffected, pH was 6.8 which is normal for the end of the day... I am stumped!

    The only change I can think of is that I decided to try dry dosing my ferts instead of making a solution... maybe I overdosed by accident? Too much copper in the Micro’s or something?

    Any ideas?

    I am an old dog trying to learn some new tricks...
