Neon still sick?
My school of glofish tetras got sick last month.

I put them in a quarantine and diagnosed them with fungus and I bought liquid fungus cure by API.

I misdiagnosed them but only realized afterwards they had a bacterial infection... columnaris I believe it's called.

I managed to nurse 1 back to the health, the other 5 died :(
His lips are still black ish but everything else about him seems to be okay, is he still sick or not? He is eating.

On another note, I left for a week for a school field trip and my 3 rams died in my dad's care. He's had fish for over 10 years, saltwater and freshwater and we have a 7 year old marine fish downstairs, he might actually be older. I find it strange since I had these 3 rams for over a month and they were completely fine and I leave for one week and they die. The other fish in my tank seem to be fine but my older molly died (had it for a couple of months). They def did not die of old age since they were only a month or so old. I am convinced that they missed me or something and died, sounds really stupid but they always were excited to see me, even if to be fed >.<

The only thing I can think of is I added some furcata rainbows before leaving and maybe they were too hyperactive or something? they don't bother any of my other fish they just swim frantically on the surface.

how many rainbows did you add
did you test your water

6, but one died so I have 5.

I did not test my water since 2 weeks ago at the store where everything was fine.
