We had two very large goldfish (Skullcrusher and Trout) that had been sickly for awhile and we were dealing with water quality issues. They had a bacterial infection which we treated. We finally got everything sorted around January 1st, they were fine and happy, no issues.

Then over the last 24 hours there was a huge spike in ammonia and PH (like jumped from 7 to 8 and ammonia went from like 2 to 8) and one of the fish developed a similar looking lesion to the bacterial infection. So we dosed the tank with treatment, hit it with PH down and ammonia lock. In the next two hours, the fish went from nothing to spasming, covered in a light white fuzz and died. Anyone have any ideas what caused their deaths and the initial ammonia spike?

Edit: they were in a 40 gallon tank. The water issues went away when we got a 90 gallon filter.

Thanks.
