Zebra danios dying
I had 4 zebra danios that cycled my tank. They are dying one by one. They stop eating till they are super skinny. Then they die.
I had 4 now i have 2 .
water parameters seem fine. Could it be that my Bolivian Ram is stressing them?
What size is this tank? If you certainly used them to cycle the tank, then they are bound not to last due to the permanent damage subjected to them from the presence of ammonia and nitrites. Sorry to hear that.
Sounds like it may be internal parasites...
I used the same group of zebra danios to cycle...four or five different tanks? I didn't lose a single fish, and the first tank I cycled with these exact danios was well before I really knew what I was doing so who knows how much ammonia and nitrite they were exposed to. If I had to guess, I would say there's something else going on, and internal parasites seem like a likely offender to me.
hmmm i think i would agree with the others too.
sorry for your losses.
Yeah . Their gills are getting a little red I think.
can you post the exact results please.
is there any amonia in the results. ?
I ran out of strip tests... I mailed ordered a 5 liquid test kit . But I do have a separate liquid test kit for ammonia and ph.
Right now it looks like its between .25 or .50 . I understand that this is unsafe for the fish right? So ive added some prime .
I just did a wc yesterday. Should I do another?
yes i would do another water change,adding dechlorinator too.
have you cleaned your filter at all ?and if you have how did you do it
would it be possible for you to fill a container(cup)with your tap water
and test that,then leave the water in the cup over night then test it again,and let us know
in a cycled tank you shouldn't have amonia,nitrites,
just a show of nitrAtes.
