Suspicious neon tetra UPDATE

After 3 days in QT, our neon tetra really looks and seems fine. I'm not sure what the problem was but there does not appear to be one now...

He/she is no longer bloated and is swimming normally so we returned him/her to our main tank with the other neons and otos.

We are going to start slowly increasing % of RO water in our water changes for this tank.

No time to make a video. But you could hazard a good guess to how it works. Water gets sucked into the intake through the sponge then out. Theres an airline, flow control and flow direction. Anyone used something like this? Would it make a
Good second filter or should i buy something else.

So first step will be to clean their old tank, then move them, then drain whats in the tank and scoop out the sand. Take it outside, hose it off, let it dry while I head to lowes for silicone!

I had a nightmare that all of my tanks were suddenly leaking... not cool.

Depends on whats gonna be in the tank. If its gonna be heavily planted then thats a good one to use. Looks pretty big

First steps of breaking down the cray tank are done! Crays are moved, tank was drained and cleaned, its now drying and in a little while I am off to get silicone. Gonna set up a fan in there to help dry the damp carpet in a bit.

Removed another dead rummy nose from my QT. That leaves three. Got the temp up to 86 F. The three remaining seem fine except for the ich spots. They are swimming and eating normally. I'm still hopeful I can save them.

My DT look awesome. Fiddled the the hoses and output on the new Fluval 206 canister I installed last night. May need to get another suction cup to hold the output in position. It seems the weight of the hose keeps moving it higher in the tank. Maybe with a little effort I can "train" it to stay where I want it.

It looks like a powerhead with a big prefilter. No harm as a second filter, but from what I can see its really a powerhead first and a filter second.

I did a large pwc on my 70 planted. Finally tally is 3 dead rasboras not too bad in the grand scheme of things. No other type of fish got sick. While I was at it I also trimmed and removed some plants.

Then had to euthanize a platy from my daughters tank. It seems to have injured/damaged its swim bladder. It was all twisted and floating barely alive. So I did another large pwc on her tank

Sorry for your losses, any idea what caused these issues?
