"Hello, I just purchased 3 black ghost knife fish and 2 silver tipped sharks for my 45 gallon aquarium. I purchased the fish at PetSmart and was told to add water conditioner to the tank. I did so following the exact directions on the bottle and acclimated my fish to the tank leaving them in the bag and putting the bags in the tank for approximately 40 minutes for the temps to adjust. About 30 minutes after I introduced them to the tank they started dying off. The temperature of the tank is 82-84 degrees Farenheit, and the pH level is 7.6 which according to this site is the appropriate level and temps for both kinds of fish. I now have one silver tip shark surviving. Could someone please tell me or give me any suggestions as to how or why these fish could have died so quickly? I think it may just have been the fish from PetSmart, but I've purchased other fish from there that have lasted years. There were no other fish in the tank when I introduced these new guys to the aquarium and the water was fresh with everything rinsed off in warm water. The filter had been running for over 12 hours to make sure everything was clean and ready for these new fish. I just don't understand so any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you, Kim from Glen Burnie, MD"
