help me name me angelfish disease
I have a 110litre tank that has been up and running for nearly a year, regular water checks and water changes are done and i have had no problems. I had 7 angel fish in my tank and bought another 2 about 3weeks ago. 4 days later 2 of my fish suddenly died, so straight away i started all the usual water checks (all fine),treatment etc but with no signs of illness in the fish i couldn`t understand what was wrong. over the next week the fish had fin rot, red veins and red eyes. i lost 7 fish altogether but its now been over 7 days since the last death so i think the remaining 2 are going to make it! but this is my question, these 2 fish never had red eye when the sickness took over the tank they developed red eye and now the red eye is away.What is this???????
Today i went to the shop i bought the fish from and all the fish in the tank have red eye? the manager tried to tell me this was normal in angelfish and that he`d had no deaths in the tank although whilst i was there i saw one of the fish die and pointed out that many of the fish had fin rot which wasn`t present when i purchased mine. please help me
hey hun, thanks for your help and i understand what you are saying, and your are right. but i should have explained better. the angelfish were all babies. they were bought to go in my new tank which is approx 300litres (birthday present by the way, not too much money on me hands lol) but were being housed in the smaller tank whilst i cycled the new one because this had been up and running previously. none of them were bigger than a 20p.and the levels were and are; Ammonia: 0 Nitrite:0 Nitrate:0 pH, KH and GH: ph 6.5 think the last 2 defo brought the disease with them!and i have seen angels with red eye too but this was something else. as i say the 2 that survived didn`t have the red eye before the illness only during and now its away again. the eyes seemed to go completely red. thats why i asked hun, i`ve never seen it before ever and i`ve had fish for over 10 years. maybe its just a side effect of the red fin with them still being small? again thank you for responding though. much appreciated.
