Neon rainbows killing one fish in tank
Has this happened to anyone? I have had 5 neon dwarf rainbows, (for a few months now). Always thought I had one male, and 4 "females", and possibly one of the females was a "male". The other day woke up to find one dead. It was the fish that now I think was a male. There is no evidence it died of any disease, and I'm guessing the other male in the tank killed it. I rarely if ever saw any drama or fighting, I think I've seen the male twice flash his white stripe on his head, and that is it, never any fighting, and than . . bam, one is dead. Not much to do about it now, just was so sudden. No warning, and I'm just wondering if anyone has any ideas on this.
How did you come to the fact that they had killed it? Couldnt possibly killed it without any damage, incision, or anything protruding. possibility is endless. cant jump to conclusions yet.
Maybe the cause of death was SUNDS. it happens to alot of adults, usually in poor rural areas and especially the hmong vetrans of the vietnam war. The eyeballs were taken out because of the shrimps and so is the belly. I usually leave my dead fish until the carcase is left. its a treat for my shrimps.
SUNDS is Sudden Unexplained Nocturnal Death Syndrome - its actually a real life syndrome in humans btw XD maybe fish can have it too
