    i woke up today to my angelfish being dead.I been having a few problems with my tank since the Red minors killed 4 of my Harlequins 2 more died since then but they where chewed up pretty good with missing tails n fins.But my angel started hiding yesterday which was strange he hasn`t done that since i 1st got him so i tried everything to get him to eat but he wouldn`t but by the end of the day he came out of hideing n would eat some for me so i thought he was going to be fine but then woke up this morning to him dead on bottom of my tank.my Ammonia is 0,Nirites 0 and Nirates are 0 my tank has been perfectly normal with no spikes ether.Could there be somthing in my tank? should i start treating it just to be safe?

    So it sounds like the red minors rule the tank? It appears to me a problem of bullying rather than an illness...unless someone else here thinks differently.

    I assume you have 0 nitrates because you have a heavily planted tank? Our of curiosity, how long has this tank been up and running?

    i didn`t think it was that heavly planted but i do have alot of plants lol its um 1 Gaint full grown Amazon Sword,12-14 Italian Vals,1 little amazon sword,i have 4-5 baby amazon swords because the full grown is giving them off like crazy n it finally grew enough to take one of the veins of babies off,i also have 1 batch of HairGrass and lots of java ferns and java moss with this ammount my Nitrates used to be sky high in cycling but went down to 0 after it finished n never came back up.
    it finished Cycling on the 9th so over 3 weeks snice complete cycling and the cycling toke about 2 weeks so 5 weeks total so a bit over a month.

    on the red minors i removed(returned to store) all 10 of them after they killed the 4 harlequins after removeing them 2 Harlequins died snice then but like i said they were chewed on. But the Angel Fish was perfectly healthy nothing wrong with him as far as i could tell.

    What temp do you keep your tank at?

    This fish was acting normally all along until it started hiding?

    BTW, what are those numbers you have in your signature after listing each fish?

    Sometimes there's just no way to tell why a fish dies - if it's not being bullied, shows no signs of illness, eats normally...it happens.

    Do you have a way to quarantine new fish? It can be helpful to allow new fish to adjust to your home by placing them in a smaller tank for a few weeks to keep an eye on them, make sure they eat, de-stress them from being moved to your home, etc.
