Does anybody know what it was. He was one of my favorite fishes.
That happened to me with the first one, it took ages to die and we felt awful cause we thought we had done somet wrong. When I wint back to the LFS I noticed all the others had it aswell. When I asked they said the entire batch came in with it and gave me a load of bogwood as compensation.
I asked if it was velvet and LFS said they didn't know what it was and they were trying everything. The batch they got after that was infected aswell.
I was lucky enough to find mine at a different place and didn't have to think twice about buying him, am now on the lookout for a friend for him either another adult or two young.
