Scales Missing on bloodfin tetra's
Hello everyone. I have a 55 gallon tank. With 6 kuhli loaches, 1 cory (lone survivor of ammonia Spike a year ago.) and a rainbow shark, along with 5 bloodfin tetra's I did have 6 tetra's one died about 2 weeks ago. and i been noticing that 2 of my bloodfins are Losing scales, and aren't really eating. All my other fish seem fine, I do weekly water changes, and the water perimeters have been stable Nothing has changed. I do notice my Rainbow shark chases my bloodfins, but never for long and normally the shark goes back to doing his own thing. I have been trying to get rid of the shark. due to the aggression, and i don't have an extra tank to house him in.
Could it be that the Shark is the cause of the loss of scales and (death of 1 bloodfin) or is it a Disease? also i notice my tetra's aren't swimming about like they use to. they tend to stay in one spot. but they aren't schooling like they would if they were stressed.
I asked a friend of mine who said it could be the shark, but i want to get other opinions.
Thanks for any help or advise you can give.
