  1. Default More fish deaths...puzzled


    0 Not allowed!
    Well I am sorry to report two more losses this morning. One was the injured fish that I posted in another thread. That death was from the injury and the other fish pecking at it. There was another that was in the overflow this morning. Overall the fish was intact and appeared normal. There are no signs of ich in the school at all.

    I tested the water this morning and the params are normal-

    Ammonia - 0 ppm
    Nitrite - 0 ppm
    Nitrates - 5 ppm
    pH - 8.0

    The fish are all schooling together for the most part and are actively swimming in all areas of the tank. None are gasping for air at the surface so I can't imagine there being not enough oxygen in the water column. I am at a loss here as to why the deaths are occurring only at night. Any help as to what I should check for is always appreciated.

    Is this the 55 in your signature? Are you running co2 and do you have an air stone you can use at night?
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Mike,
    I don't have an answer for you, but I had a strange thing happen about 2 weeks ago. One morning I woke up and my drawf gourami i was dead. Couldn't figure out why...all other fish were swimming fine, and the two other gouramis I had were just fine, and all 3 gouramis had been together in my 75gal for about 6-8 months. Then, 2 days later, I wake up to fine one of my female guppies dead. Again, this fish had been in my tank for about a year. She was a good size female. No other fish soing any signs of illnes or distress. The next morning my other female guppy was dead. I did a water check with my API kit and all params were fine. Since that time, no other fish have died. But for the life of me, I can't figure out what killed those 3 fish. Their bodies were not picked at, and no visible signs of illness or injuries could be seen.

    I just wanted you to know, you're not alone in this mystery. Wishing you no more deaths.

    Sometimes fish either die or disappear inexplicably - it's upsetting but there could be something internally wrong that we can't see and don't see symptoms of - it has happened to me too.
    46 gal fw tank with black skirt tetras, neon tetras, spotted corys, green corys, 1 guppy, cherry barbs, otoclinus, snails & 4 amano shrimp - plastic & live plants
    5 gal QT with green corys & 2 guppies

    I am keeping a close eye on the params throughout the day. I figured I would lose a few but I am now at 7 and that is the concerning part.
