i let the tank run for a day, then added five guppies. had them for about two weeks, then lost a male, he had a white spot on his tail and had it when we got him. then about two days later a female got really fuzzy looking and found out i had ich. at first i say fuzzy, but after i read they look like they are sprinkled with salt, that's what it looked like. so i medicated for ich for a week and everyone cleared up. now three weeks later my other male isn't looking so good. all three females are doing fine, doing normal guppy business. my temp is about 82 F and after the ich break out i started doing 25% water changes twice a week. girls haven't been bothering him, but i never saw him chase them either. i dont have a test kit right now, we are pretty tight on money.
I guess i should mention one of the females we got has a bent spine. if i had known at the store, i wouldn't have brought her home. (hubby got the fish) i figure she's just deformed, but not sure now. could it be related?
