I bought a red swordtail today, male, and he died within four hours of me getting him home.
He went into the tank, swam to the bottom, hung out in the corner and by the second period of the hockey game he was belly up.
I'm new to the hobby. I have a community tank with one cory, two platies, and three guppies. Nothing has died until today. I change my water regularly, and test it regularly. Again, no other fish have died.
Did I buy a dying fish?
So sorry,Its horrible losing a fish. I too am new to this but that doesn't sound right. Take it back to the store with a sample of your tank water and get them to test it, it'll put your mind at rest one way or another, otherwise you're gonna worry about your others.
