| || | Fish Dead On Arrival
I just bought 2 harlequin rasboras to add to my tank, and I noticed they were very small and lacked any red colouring. I'm guessing it's age related.
So, I drove from the pet shop (3minute drive), then walked to the entrance (1-2 minutes), outside temperature is about 8-10°C and the bag with the fish was not isolated. I put the bag which contained fish in the tank to acclimate it. 5 minutes later both fish died.
Have I stressed them with the temperature? The fish were not moved from the water they came in, which was same water they lived in and there was no contact with my tank water other then temperature.
Now should I try my luck again or what?
