All fish have died within 1 week period

What does this look like?

This is the last fish in my tank and he isnt looking good.

Large white spots, black bars are faiding to see through, gills very swollen and tail looks like its paralised. Fish can only swim up and down.

Water is good, 75g tank. There was never an ammonia spike

Temp 76
sg 1.025

I lost two other fish over the weekend, this guy looked good until last night when he started to ghasp for air!

What a great way to start my morning,

Woke up and the last fish in the tank was no where to be found and my skimmer wasnt skimming anymore! Only one thing could of happened, the fish got sucked up into the skimmer.

Before work I removed the HOB from the tank, took it all apard to find the little guy stuck inside the actual pump all chewed up!


Removed the corps! Put the skimmer back together, filled it with water to perm test run and guess what. SKIMMER isnt working, the pump was getting really hot to the touch. Looks like have the guy sucked into the skimmer burnt out the motor. I will let it sit all day and see if the skimmer pump turns on when I get home.

what a great way to start my day

Awww sorry to hear about your fish. What a morning. I always do head counts first thing when I get up and always get worried when i can't find one.

Now you can make sure your tank is in order and try again.

Again, sorry about the fish :-(

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
