Unhappy never mind, she died

My husband just called to tell me that I had a dead fish in my tank.

Oh, honey! I'm so sorry. . .

I wish I had seen this thread yesterday, but she went so fast, there probably wasn't anything you could have done to help her. . . still sorry you had to face it alone.

If she was in a community with other fish, I would recommend doing a water change, and keep a close eye on the others for any signs of the same issue with them. Hopefully this was a random one-time thing, but if not, we have an area of the forum dedicated to helping with illness. If you see ANY signs of this 'white spot' on your other fish, please fill in the Diagnosis form you will find there, and post for help.

*hugs* I'm sad for your loss. . .

"White spot" can be any number of things, and we all kind of think of different things when we see those words. If it all possible, it's always best to post a picture of it. Like Chesh said, do a water change and keep an eye on the other fish.

Do you have a quarantine tank? It is really an important thing to have, and use.

Jaysee is right, QT tanks are very important to use when introducing new fish into an established tank, or to have on-hand should you need to pull a sick/injured fish out for observation/medicating. I like using my 10g as a QT for smaller fish. Its a large enough size for me to easily maintain water quality, and if medications are required, most dosages are easy to measure to a tank this size. . .
