krib wobbling and breathing fast
Hi all, my kribs laid eggs and the female stays in the coconut and when she comes out, she is breathing heavy and wobbles. Could this be from the loss of the eggs or is it a disease.

okay now i have neon tetras floating, gupies breathing from the surface, all my kribs breathing fast, cories dashing every where, and in general fish are breathing extra fast

Test your water. Need to know parameters.

Don't worry it happened to me when I first got my africans. Turns out there wasn't enough surface vibration so the fish were not getting enough oxygen. All I did was point the output to my canisters toward the surface and problem solved. Now in all my tanks I make sure there is enough surface vibration. The eggs might still be there. If they are not I am sure the kribs will spawn again.

they are still guarding the coconut, and the female is almost always in there so I think it's okay
