Now I'm afraid that they spread a disease. The fish didn't look sick that I noticed. I would just find them dead in the tank. I have 10 serpae tetras, 2 Platies are left, 4 zebra danios, 2 Otos (I'm going to get more. I bought 4 and one was DOA and I lost the other one when I redid my tank), 3 amano shrimp, and 5 leopard cories (I just realized I'm kind of attached to those) so now I'm scared all of my fish are going to start dying. Is there a medicine I can use to dose the tank that will kill whatever disease is in there?
My tank is 55 gallons, and the water parameters are normal.
ETA: I'm pretty sure one of my serpae tetras is in the process of dying right now. Its mouth is wide open and it looks like its stomach is slightly swollen.
Do the standard stuff, test the water, look for parasites, and signs of illness.
something is killing them
