3 out of 4 of my fishes died. my husband told me to get over it, but I think my fishes deserved the cry I gave them. The first two were my first pets ever

The 2 survivors lived in a cup for about 2 weeks until I got the new tank ready. The key is to keep the water clean too many nitrates from fish waste is what kills them. I add fresh water whenever the level gets low and I clean the gravel once a month. What size is your tank?
