Damsels

My two three stripped damsels were swimming around just fine yesterday. But now they hide behind rock and since they hide they Dont get food. I need some help....wait now one is dead!

I got 1 about a month ago havent ever seen it eat. He hides 100% of the time and he pushes himself as close to a rock as he can to hide hurting himself. He still alive though so i am in the same boat as you with this weird damsel.

Water paras?

I had 2 striped damsels and I couldn't kill them even tho I tried. Took all equipment off and the damsels survived over 5 months of no water changes or nothing so I decided just to give them away. They wouldn't die and if yours did there's something seriously wrong with your tank! I think the only thing that saved my damsels was the DSB

Sorry, but that is a horrible way to attempt euthenasia on a fish. I hope you found new methods of humane euthenasia.
