 Hi  to  start  off  :  Earlier  i  used  to  do  water  changes  with  normal  tap  water  and  all  used  to  be  fine  and  fishes  were  all  healthy  but  of  late  i  had  some  major  issues  and  deaths  every  morning  i  used  to  find  one  dead  fish  .....i  tried  with  to  ponder  over  various  options  and  notice  that  my  tap  water  is  no  more  crystal  clear  as  it  used  to  be  earlier  when  i  poured  the  eater  in  a  empty  glass  jar  it  was  all  white  for  first  15  -30  mins  then  slowly  it  cleared  up.
 
 what  you  guys  think  ,what  could  be  the  problem--Chlorine?
 
 Note  :  tank  has  been  up  for  almost  2  years  and  many  a  times  fish  done  breeding  and  fries  survived  to  adulthood.
 
 Please  suggest.

 Rocky,  
 if  its  chlorine  in  the  water  you  can  smell  it  when  you  take  the  water  in  your  palm.  It  is  better  to  age  the  water  by  aerating  the  water  in  a  large  drum  for  two  days  before  using  it  for  water  changes.  This  way  any  dissolved  chlorine  will  be  gone.  But  to  be  sure,  it  is  better  to  test  the  water  for  any  other  contaminants.

 Always  use  dechlorinator  if  you   are  using  water  from  municipal  sources.
 Chlorine  in  any  concentration  is  toxic  to  fish

 Unless  you  test  your  water,  you'll  never  know  what  went  wrong.  Get  a  good  test  kit  &  test  the  water  for  all  possible  parameters.  That's  the  only  way  to  be  sure,  and  to  make  amends  for  the  future.
