Noob here. Recently took out my boyu tank and bought 2 small ranchu. I remember years back it's only 3 dollars and now each cost 9dollars!!! Anyway put inside the tank and hola. Both die within 8 hours.

Its the water, highly likely.

Did u let the water sit in the tank for a few days before putting in the fishes?

Sound like you never add water conditioner and cycle your tank

how big is your tank?
it takes about 30L for each ranchu in order to strive.

What kind of logic is this?They are pet fishes,not feeders.My objective is not to throw them away but to give them to people who have genuine love for pet fish and so they can continue to thrive.

It will turn green after a while.

That's common.

Some people put snails or sucker fish to counter that. I don't like those coz I don't like to see it sticking on the front glass. It's kinda ugly. I'd rather clean the glass.

Get a glass scraper from the shop that will make cleaning the glass easier.
