Default Re: Cycling not going as expected?

no idea - it was suggested that it could have been tetras disease but there were no signs till a couple lost their tail fins then over 2 days rest died. Water quality was fine, no changes except introducing 3 pearl gourami. No signs or evidence of any tail nipping. All the rest in the tank are fine and have been for 3 weeks but doing more frequent water changes in case.
