Emergency! Dying algae eaters! Help?
Hi so i recently posted about my new farlowella. I have him with 3 honey sunset gouramis and 1 rubber lip pleco in a 29 gallon aquarium. Last night i found my pleco under the new mopani wood i bought(i boiled it for 3 days) dead. The gourami's and farlowella were perfectly fine. This morning i found my farlowella upside down on the gravel. He righted himself, and is breathing, but is staying in the same spot. I Dont know whats wrong. ammonia and nitrite are 0 ppm and nitrate is 15 ppm. Just incase though, i put in a reccomended dose of amquel +. I did a water change 2 days ago, about 15% and i dont know if thats the problem. I've been placing hikari algae wafers in constantly for my pleco and farlowella and theres alot of algae on the walls so i dont see how they are starving. filtration is an aquaclear 40. Help? Should i set up a new tank for the farlowella?. The gourmais are perfectly fine.
