I was just wondering if anybody could let me know if my Rainbow Shark is a problem. A few weeks ago, I added a Pictus Cat to my community tank. Immediately, I noticed that my Rainbow Shark really followed him around, and chased him quite often. I wasn't sure if it was playful or not, but after about 2-3 days, I noticed that the Pictus had a case of the ick. I immediately took him out and put him into my quarantine tank, and then noticed that many of my other fish now had it too. Instead of taking EVERYTHING out and putting them into the quarantine tank, I decided to treat the whole tank. Unfortunately, I lost the Pictus, and also all of my black neon tetras, and glowlight tetras. Everything else however were saved.
Now, Im wondering if the Rainbow Shark caused the ick outbreak, because of the constant chasing he was doing to the Pictus, was he stressing him out too much? Now, I noticed the Rainbow Shark seems to be chasing my Pleco once in a while, and Im afraid it might happen again.
The Rainbow was never like that before. Before the Pictus, he would just stay around the bottom, hide in caves and not bother anybody. Thanks in advance for anybody who has any ideas.
