Fish dead, Nitrates through the roof....

Fighter with bloat and will not build bubble nest for aparant young(eg.eggs)
Sand covered with poop so when I siphon the junk I lose sand too.
Kuhli loach white instead of browish black.
Filters clogged.

Agreed small freq water changes.. 10% everyday. Makes sure temp is stable. Clean sand as best as you can, take filter apart and clean. Possibly even new media for the filter. Remove all dead plant matter and dead fish. Make feeding light. Keep lights on 12hours a day. Good luck.
