Rapidly Dead Fish
I just got back from a business trip to find out 13 of my tropical fish had died. The pet sitter said they were fine and active during her morning visit, but by the time she got there at 6pm they were all dead.
She's a vet tech and thought it might be ich, so she isolated the 5x remaining fish from the tank and left some ich medication for me. The dead fish were removed from the tank.
Last weekend I added a 7 new tetras to the tank, so I believe they probably brought something with them. (Tank is 30 gallon and water tests good.)
Not having seen the fish before they died I'm not sure if they had parasites, a disease, or what because there was no one to observe their behavior prior to them dying. (And they died within 12 hours!)
Any ideas what might have happened to make them all go so quickly?
