I have been back and forward from Brisbane. Hurt my back so been to specialist, tank was yuck when got back which is why I did a large water change. and I have done them in the past before with no problems. so didn't think about it till after. But everything I have read on ghost fish is that they don't mind a ph of 7 - 7.5. but i have been searching the net for as much info as I can find and there really isn't much information about them (well that I can find). Been reading any website I can find. and I know my adult one which I raised from a baby is pretty tough. you can almost pat him and he doesn't mind, pretty quiet.
Ill check the ph and see what it reckons when it comes out of the tap.
thank you for the help

I will keep on top of the water changes now that im home again. and thankfully all the other fish are healthy and happy looking.
Thank you for all your help tho. I will look into the ph and check the temp of the water before putting it in. Be alot more carefull from now on..

Hi C.

Finally had a chance to read about your BGNF. Really sorry to hear about your loss, Black Ghosts are such cool fish and usually get really tame so it's hard not to get attached to them
It definitely sounds like a shock issue. I am assuming you de-chlor your water with Prime or something when you do your changes.
As everyone has said, try and stick with your smaller more frequent water changes but i understand the extenuating circumstances you had at the time.
I had a friend look after my L's while i went on hols last year and wrote him a list of instructions for feeding etc for each tank and ran him through everything before i went. I still couldn't help emailing him a couple of times to make sure all was well but had no problems at all
Hope your back is on the mend and good luck with everything.
