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: sailfin pleco, clown loaches, silver dollars, roseline sharks, congo tetras, new world cichlids
125 gallon office tank: Africian cichlids, synodontis catfih
75 gallon community tank: bolivian rams, black skirt tetras, dwarf neon rainbowfish, corys, harlequin rasboras, otos, bristlenose and bulldog plecos, assassin snails, various shrimp
60 gallon goldfish tank: fancy goldfish
