Lost another fish in QT!!
 
I am not happy. I just woke up to one of my Roseline Sharks dead!! My QT tank is dwindling down, man.

QT has been a month today ~

Thoughts??

I know what is it like losing fish in the QT.:-?

Have you tested the water? After the lose of a fish, the ammonia may be higher than normal, so it is hard to tell if the ammonia was caused before or after the fish passed.

Is the tank overstocked? That can cause problems in a QT, as anyone could a imagine.

Do you buy from a "reputable dealer"? Do you have good faith that your dealer takes good care of their fish? I know I keep getting sick fish from my LFS, and it messes everything up.

There is only 4 fish in QT ~ 20 gal tank. Params are all okay ~ so not checking them one.more.time.

As far as a "reputable dealer" I am beginning to wonder.

I think that there may be another Roseline Shark going down.:cry: The water is swimming him, he is not really swimming the water ~

If that makes any sense. I am not getting these fish anymore. I read numerous times they are very sensitive.

Did I listen?
