    Sorry about the BRB's Kevin. That would be very frustrating to have the same thing happened more than once and not be able to put your finger on it.

    And sorry about the Cardinal Lee. Hopefully a one time occurrence.

    I just read something interesting about BRBs...

    It said that their diet almost consists completely of detritus and algae in the wild on a detritus ridden substrate. So, they should be fed algae/vegetable flakes, etc, and they're pretty much best kept with a dirty bottom.

    I've noticed that they do enjoy eating detritus and leaves of plants w/ algae, etc, but I never suspected that that was their primary diet.

    When in doubt, ask yourself... W.W.L.S (What would Lee Say)?

    wow Kevin, that is interesting. Does that follow that you could well be over cleaning your tank, for the BRB's taste...? Sorry to hear of your losses.

    Lee, I'm sorry to hear of your cardinal.

    Same thing with Rhombo Kev. They ate pellets but I noticed them eating algae too.

    One reason I have never used flake is to reduce the risk of lots of air intake. That's one thing that I have never do, fed flake.

    Sorry you lot another, they are good looking fish.
    Special thank you to mommy1, KevinVA and slaphppy7 for all the help, it has not been easy!

    Have they been doing this before you started on your ICH treatment or after?
    Increasing your biodiversity increases your stability.

    You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.

    This is true of a lot of tetra and barbs, Kev. Lower protein vegetable, algae, kelp based flake or pellets should be included in their diet. I think we've talked about this before?
    When in doubt, do a water change.

    Before and after. Honestly, it took a while for the first one to become afflicted with this. It was right before I added a second batch and I had them for several months, I believe, before adding the 2nd batch from TWS.

    Well, I've been feeding a broad range of foods in this tank... Every day, I switch it up, between a comprehensive flake, spirulina flakes, cichlid pellets/crisps, vegie pellets, algae tabs, regular bottom feeder pellets, etc. They get a well-rounded diet, but I'm thinking the spirulina flakes should be used almost every day, now.
