Shellyx - After thinking of your post from the 6th - if you have a bacterial infection the higher temps might be accelerating the infection. You mentioned the Boraras Briggitae when you got some having a few with no tails, perhaps it went away to a degree but came back now. It is possible you have the 2 issues, ich and bacterial infection.
All these sicknesses are are making me heart sick in thinking of it.
Came home from work to a smelly tank, it was cloudy this morning.
The 46G QT tank with the Anchor worm issue. Foul.
Decided to get a good cleaning done on it. Started with getting hte water level down, then vac'ing the decaying plant bits and misc muck. It is bare bottom but has some DW and plants and a couple larger stones.
Then found 3 fungus covered fish, two were Guppy girls and one was a bigger fish not too sure if it was the big huge Guppy I had it was pretty much a giant fuzz ball.
For some reason the way the filter circulates things, the bodies must have been hiding under the DW, because I looked for more dead ones yesterday and didn't see anything.
Rinsed out the AC
110 filter and in the bottom was one of the Super Red BN plecos.
In QT. Presently have 2 large Angels (previously from the 72G) saw 2 Plecos including the one from the filter, ~5, maybe 6 Guppy girls, 1 Clown Pleco, and the Bronze Cory.
Did a ~2/3rd pwc
- added the minerals to the water as I refilled. The fish seemed a wee bit stressed but at least now they aren't in toxic water. The lights have been off since the pwc
and am about to go back over and see how they are looking after an hour, need to add the last 2 buckets of water here soon. Trying to do the water change slowly since the bad and the clean water are so different.
I am tired.
The other tanks are looking okay.
Last night in the 12G, the Mexican Swords aka Xiphophorus helleri Rio Otapa were notably larger than the other tank mates and I am thinking they should get moved soon so they can have nice large open spaces. One is obviously a male, brightly colored and one is very large. Two are kinda small and more pale.
