| || | Sorry to gatecrash!! :O)
I am new to Forums and i a cannot find where to start a new thread so my only option was to gatecrash someone elses which I am terribly sorry about doing!!!!, but am having problems finding out what to do about my sick? flame gourami. I am in Australia, have a 130 Liter community tank containing two flame dwarf gouramis, 6 black phantom tetras, 6 neon tetras, 2 bristlenose pleco, 5 asstd Guppies and recently (2 days ago) 1 knife fish.
A few weeks ago I had ammonia problems which when resolved then became a case of white spot (also since dealt with) all fish were doing fine after a small treatment of methylene blue (which i actually decided to discontinue and treat with salt and increased temp and did the trick) I introduced the knife fish 2 days ago and kept a close eye on everyone to make sure the transition was smooth.
then this afternoon one of my Gouramis was resting on a leaf of a plant, i fed everyone and he still didnt appear interested. He then kept sitting slightly laying on one side on the bottom of the tank, didnt want food and very inactive, I moved him to hospital tank where he has become very still just gasping and leaning to one side, looks fairly normal, water levels are all good, all other fish seem to be doing well. I dont know what to do and dont want to just watch him die without doing anything at all..... PLEASE HELP!! also do I need to put my other gourami in hospital tank just in case it is DGD? ANY help on tbus would be greatly appreciated!!!
