matt check inside your heater, filter, lego house, if you cant find it it is probably dead due to overcrowding and probably dissolved and got "returned to nature" sorry about that.

If we can diagnose why the platy died, we can help make it not happen again, what are the water params and what was the platy like before it died

I am sorry for you loss englandbloke, If you could give us some more information on your tank such as size, occupants, and water params we maybe able to help out a little more. To make sure you do not lose any more of your fish.


I apologize for the disturbance in your thread.

do you know your ammonia, nitrite and nitrate levels?

im not too good with dimensions, can you tell us how many liter/gallons. From what i see i think the tank is too overcrowded which caused an ammonia spike and killed your fish, but then again im surprised it was the platy that died even though the platy is strongest fish in your tank

like i said here what are the was the platy like before it died, did it have any spots on it? bloated tummy?

well by over crowding i meant by waste production, the fish you have in there seem to get quite big and will produce a lot of waste. Have you cycled your tank yet?
