Thread: Dieing Tiger?

  1. Default Dieing Tiger?

    I've one tiger barb that's in a corner and not swimming. Seems to be gasping. I'm in the middle of a 50% water change to see if that helps. No spots or anything that would indicate sickness. Hopefully a few water changes over the next few days and monitoring levels will save the fish.

    I have two acting weird. I hope there wasn't something odd on the decor or my hands as I was adding to the tank today. :(

    1. Change more water every day in case you contaminated the tank with anything nasty. Change more than 50% if you can, or do more than one 50% change.
    2. Test your water for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate - what are your readings? Do you have a pH test kit? If so, what is it?
    3. What are the most recent things you did to the tank?
    4. What size is the tank and filtration?
    5. Is the temperature stable? What temperature do you have it set to?
