I am sorry to hear about the trouble you are having. I am thinking that possibly you have something either bacterial or parasitic going on caused from the dead fry. Depending on how long the fry that you fed to the fish had been dead, there could have been alot of decomp already taking place. Are any of the remaining fish showing any symptoms? Maybe someone else will have more ideas of what is going on. Also do you know what caused the death of the fry that you fed to the others?

Yeah. I would think that the fry were starting to decompose and they are dealing with that process now inside them. Also adding the dead fry would quickly start to increase your ammonia levels. I would remove any dead fry that are left and test your water parametres and post those.

yea some of the dead fry were pretty white i have no idea what killed the fry i think the large water change did it? whats been happening is my angels will start swimming really weirdly upside down in circles look very disoriented and a hour later stop breathing i been syphoning the tank every day cleaning the gravel as much as possible the parameters are perfect and so is the temp, i fed them the peas , i got MELIFIX just not sure if that will harm them or how i should use it.

I'm so sorry to hear about your fish losses :( I hope you don't lose them all. Keep up posted.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Maybe you should hold off feeding them for a few days? Good luck I hope you can save them. : (

Kindest Regards,

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!
