    Default fish died-what happened?


    0 Not allowed!
    i just did a large water change. everything was normal after until about 5-10 minutes later my fish (red rainbow) began to swim erratically back and forth in the tank swimming directely into the glass.

    then she hit the glass particularly hard and then it seamed like she couldnt stay upright and then she was dead

    all together it lasted about 1 minute before it died... any ideas of what it could be? i looked it up and goulonly find something on the swim bladder but like i said it lasted only 1 minute

    please help im deeply saddened by the loss of my beautiful fish

    Have you checked the parameters of your tank? Did you remember to add dechlorinator to the water? Was the temperature of the added water close to the temperature of the tank?
    When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    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.
    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
    Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

    I was thinking that you didn't add dechlorinator as I read over the post, unfortunately I was right.

    Terribly sorry about the loss /: Don't let it get you down
