My aquarium recently went crazy and i'm losing all my fish...5 tetras with fin rot, banana barb with mouth rot, albino Tiger Barb with fungus growing around his right lung...I tried and tried to treat them but did't know what to treat first!!! I got a lot of good advice...but a little too late i'm afraid. Should I just restart over again???
Sorry to hear about your fish, unfortunately this happens at times. You should start again, but check your water conditions fungus is often a sign of poor water quality, unless you recently added fish that were infected.
NONO they are not all dead...YET!!! I still have 5 tetras, 3banana barbs that seem to be maybe ok (can't tell) and 1 banana barb with half a mouth!!!, and 2 albino tiger barbs, 1 with balance probs. and 1 that's breathing heavily and rapidly! I took out my Dwarf Blue Guarami and Dwarf Chocolate Guarami...they are in a bowl!!! (I think between this and nursing school i'm stressed to the max!!!)
OHOHOH, I found somebody to come out and look at my aquarium, but they can't come till monday...What i'm going to do (i think) is wait till the last minute then take out the fish and then disinfect my tank (that's what the man said to do) and then when he comes over he can look at my fish and then maybe i'll know something. I know a week is a long time, but they have been doing semi-ok for 3 weeks so far...I hate to euthanize my fish if they are not too sick...HEY they still swim to the top whenever I come in the room to eat and they eat!!!!! Except the one with half a mouth...I wanna cry!!!!!!
I checked my water and there are no nitrites at all. perfect 0! I also tested the Ph out of curiosity and it was sky high at 7.8 (as high as my tester can go)...So it makes no sence that my tank ph is at 6.6 still...the water changes should have made it go up...is there a reason for this???
