sad story :(
one of my angelfish was acting slow and lazy for the past week and yesterday i saw my two silver dollars attacking it! they jumped out of the water and got dove back in and attacked it! also they took off its tail an eye and half of its body :( nasty right!? well i only saw when the silver dollars were staring at it and they nipped it a couple times but i thot that was nothing.but then my mom told me that she saw them attacking it.she wasnt gonna save it cause it was gonna die anyway it wasnt breathing right and its fins were falling apart. tell me what u think of this blahh!!

oh and it died duhh lol

sorry for your loss.....never fun losing a fish...

biokid101 04-13-2010 07:27 PM

i know. i might be losing some of my guppies :( they r all staying vertical instead of horizontal and the fry r staying still too. i just changed the tank u think they need to adjust more?

what are you water parameters? when you say changed your tank around....what all did you move around? if you changed out all your gravel, you might have caused a mini-cycle.....

so, what did you change exactly and what are the parameters?

i changed around all the plants and stuff and i did a 75 percent water change cause the water was filthy and i havent did the w/c in a while cause ive been very busy.but they r all acting wierd even my fry! i didnt change the gravel just the plants and i added something new.i added a breeders net to put the small fry in which r about 10 and the rest r in the tank which r about 16 but i might just release all of them cause the adults dont seem to mind now.

Hmm something is off I'd say...

I have a planted tank, do WC's when I can (between every 1-3 weeks) and I never gravel vac- My tanks never been "filthy". Do you mean algae or detritus (poop)

+1 about the water results.
you've stirred it all up,and the fish are reacting to it.
how sad about the poor angel fish.

it was algea and i just lost my pregnant guppy :( so now i have 1 female and 3 male and im gonna leave it like that cause after they all die im gonna get platies or something. is 4 platies ok for this tank?

redchigh 04-16-2010 05:12 PM

double post.

redchigh 04-16-2010 05:13 PM

how big is the tank?
And you can keep platies and guppies together you know...

You mean the 5G?
well you know you're only supposed to have 1 male for every three females... right?
The males are "sexing" the females to death.
