View Full Version : Sick Danio

One of my Giant Danios that I've had since the cycle 6 months ago is sick. He is laying on the bottom breathing rapidly. He's in my quarantine tank now, no pop-eye, no signs of external parasites, he seems to have lost some scales easily when i caught him, help please??

Sorry your danio is ill. Hope he will spring back soon for you. Since you see nothing, it could be internal parasites but who's to say. Some times fish just die for no apparent reason.

he's still kickin, it's lookin like fin&tail rot. I just guessed on what to give him yesterday, and tetracycline seems to be the stuff for it, so i guessed right. We'll just see now if he survives the treatment.

I don't have much experience in diagnosing fish and treating them, which is why i want to learn on the cheaper fish in case i ever spend more money on a better fish.
