    Hi,
    I am Ujwal from India. This is the first time Inhave kept an aquarium of 29 gallons. I have 20 fishes in it. They are as follows:

    1. 6 Parrot fish
    2. 4 Tinfoil barb
    3. 4 cichlids
    4. 2 Short body Flowerhorn
    5. 2 Rainbow Shark
    6. 2 Silver Dollar fish.

    I got the same about two days back and today in the morning I found eyes missing of my 2 Tinfoil barb fishes and they died. I can’t seem to understand as to why the same has happened.

    Welcome to ac.

    Sorry to here about your loss's.
    Unfortunatly the best advice at this stage would be to Ideally rehome the fish all of them and restart the system i am afraid to say.
    At lot in the list are incompatible and or require tanks way bigger.

    Those tin foils grow fast have 3 myself and grew 5 inches in 4 months. That flowerhorn is a cross breed and has a normal mouth won't be long before he starts killing all the tank mates.

    Take Macs advice!

    Welcome to the forum, you have some great advice. Sorry for your losses but a 29 is just too small for these fish.
    Two 5.5g- Shrimp tanks; 1st with 4 chilis, green endlers & Bloody Mary shrimp and 2nd with blue star endlers and Blue Dream shrimp
    Four-27 gallon tubs, 1st with my 2 BN plecos with their 2 generations of fry and 12 dwarf corys; 2nd has gouramis, rainbow fish, and female endlers; 3rd has (killer) albino corys, 1 pepper cory and 6 panda corys; 4th is 90% plants and one Diva-the pea puffer.


    75g-now the TUB tanks:
    Nat's 20L Tanks

    All the advise from above is spot on. Re-homing and starting over is going to be the least difficult option for you. Once you have re-homed the current animals, we can help you come up with a new stocking list of compatible animals.
