Ok so I lost both sharks and the catfish but not the large "algae eater"
The silver dollar still is swimming funny but the parrot fish seems a little better
Why would two small tetras make the tank so far off balance? This is a large tank with not many fish I only had 11 fish in the tank? Now down to 7
I have been doing about 20% water change each night but that doesn't seem to help
Got a nitrate kit and ph kit both check out within normal ranges although I am told now 6.5 ph is low for the parrott the ph testing was yellow in color and the Nitrate had three different test in one and it was light green can't remember the numbers.
Lost the largest of the tetras which is the same kind of fish I think red phatom tetra i had just bought two more of but the new ones look great & the other 2 small tetra seem wonderful swimming around like normal
Will ick kill? The tetra that died had a lot of little white/clear looking spots on it and also on the fins
I had been treating with ick medicine and also melafix too trying to help
Both the parrott and the silver dollar stay at the top of the tank but I have two dual air pumps two on "curtains" and two going to airstones, plus a waterfall filter that adds air Don't think that's the problem
I did try feeding them a peas last night because i had read something about swimmers bladder being the problem
i use flake food and some shrimp pellets plus some algae food Am I using the wrong food?
I do like to feed them so I could be overfeeding. I am cutting back.
Do you have any other suggestions?
Still alive but not well!
Thanks for the advise.
