PLEASE HELP! Chinese Algae Eaters acting very strange
First my 2 inch golden c.a.e. started looking weird. It was bloated and had blood spots on various places right under the scales, and breathing fast. I separated into my sick tank but after a few days was looking better again so I put it back in my large aquarium. Now, my 4 inch normal c.a.e. is really sick too, he is very bloated and laying on his side, he has the same symptoms as the golden one just much more severe. He can hardly move. The bloodspots are the most severe near around his fins on the sides and his anal opening. What do they have and is it curable? Please please help!

well.....it is highly recommended that you change some water weekly...i change 25% of the water from my 20 gallon. when you change your water i would used a dechlorinator like PRIME. 3 months is plenty of time for something to be decayin beneath your gravel....how long has the tank been set up and how long have u had the CAE??
