RIP: SAEs, cherry barbs, neon tetras & kribensis
Within 1 month, I have lost quite a number of fishes in multiple tanks as if death is visiting my apartment.
Outdoor 55 gallon tank: A SAE I adopted from a friend last month jumped out of the tank. By the time I found the body, it's already dried up.
Indoor 55 gallon tank: A SAE jumped out of the tank. I found the dried up body early this morning. A day before, I found a badly injured male Kribensis. Could be injured due to a fight with other male Kribs. It died within a few minutes after I removed it from the tank.
Under quarantine: I lost the entire batch of fishes (4-5 cherry barbs and 2 black neon tetras) I adopted from a friend after an aquascaping contest as he decided to sell his tank. They died for unknown reason after being quarantined for 3 weeks - they were healthy. The sudden death could be due to chemical poisoning or water parameter issue. It remains a mystery.
I hope nothing dies in the next few weeks.
