I seem to be having some problems with my fish. Last week I bought a female guppy from a pet store. I brought her into my community tank which had 1 adult female guppy, 3 6mth old male guppies and a 6 th old female guppy. When she got into the tank I noticed that she had some white spots on her, which i assumed to be ick. I treated them for 2 days and then my 6 month old guppy gave birth to 4 fry so I stopped the treatments. 2 days later, the one of my female guppys (not the new one or the new mother) died unexpectedly. I moved my fry into a 5 gallon tank to themselves and started treating the tank for ick again. I tested my water and my pH was a little high so I brought it down. All of my other levels were good. Then I had one of my males die also. So I started freaking out. Today, my mom called and said that I lost another male and the other male and my 6 mth old female were acting weird. She also noticed 2 more fry in the tank. Does anyone know why my fish are dropping like flies? My levels are good. Could it be the treatment from the ick? I was doing 25% water as it advised.
Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated !
