My Albino Cory Grew Dots?
Last Wed. I went to Petco and bought the last albino catfish and 5 neon tetras.
2 Neons died while I was floating the bag. The catfish looked fine. I had a betta in the aquarium at the time.
The day after, I awoke to a dead tetra. I decided I would go to Petsmart to get 2 more corys and more tetras. So i proceeded.
On Friday, I knew my betta has mouth fungus. He started to act weird
Saturday, my betta went to the big pond in the sky.
Anyways, last night, I treated my tetras and corys to Fungus Clear, if they were infected. I put the correct dose in a 1/2 tank.
That is the background history of the last week and couple days.
Anyway, today I left for church 9 o clock, came back 1-ish. I notcied that underneath one of my albino's eyes was to blue-colored dots. They were symetrical and was the color of my gravel....Should I have nay concerns?
Never mind about it. They 'dots' went away. I gues it just happened from digging in the gravel.
Sounds like there's a problem with your tank, too many fish are dying.
who keeps a fish tank at 6.0 ph isnt that way to acidic for most fish
Alot of people keep certain fish at a Ph lower than 6.0..............Most of your South American chacarins prefer and do much better at a very low PH...........These fish in their natural habitat are living in water that can be as low as 4.0, so an aquarium with a Ph of 6.0 is optimal for most tetras.........My 55 gallon tetra tank is at 6.2 last time i tested it and i would love to get it lower still...........My tetras have thrived and have shown better color than other people tanks who have the same fish..............Getting your water to a lower Ph is not that difficult to achieve with the use of peat in your filter and a little bit of rainwater............
So what are we to do? Instantly dump the fish into the tank?
Sorry for posting a bit off-topic. I just got surprised by what I read.
