loaches dying again!!
It's happening again! One week after I lost two clown loaches immediately after a water change I'm losing three more. They're still alive, lying on their sides, breathing normally. One is making periodic dashes to the surface, but the other two aren't moving.
I am 100% sure I remembered prime this time.
I am 100% sure I matched the temperature well this time.
No signs of distress at all from the danios or the pleco or, for that matter, the other three loaches.
I have changed 4 other tanks this week without incident so there is nothing wrong with my source water.
I don't understand it! My poor fish...300 gallon mega tank: build in progress
75 gallon community tank: tetras, danios, corys, platies, otos, pearl gouramis, bristlenose pleco, assassin snails, red cherry shrimp, bamboo shrimp
70 gallon growout tank: clown loaches, sailfin pleco
60 gallon goldfish tank: fancy goldfish
29 gallon frog tank / 10 gallon tadpole tank: 1 leopard frog, 1 tadpole
10 gallon and 5.5 gallon betta tanks: 1 male betta each, sometimes snails
