Hi All -
I purchased a Lemonpeel (or Heraldis) Angelfish 2 weeks ago. He was QT'ed in my friends LFS
for 1 month - eating fine.
I brought him home, drip acclimated and he was doing swimmingly (excuse the pun). Eating mysis and sprinula and grazing on my LR
Left for work this morning and it was swimming normally, moving in and out of the LR
tunnels and generally looking happy.
Arrive home today, and he's no-where to be seen. I then saw a mass of hermits crowding around in a deep section of LR
- I moved around to the side and was devastated. They'd already started eating...
Pulled him out, and ran some tests (liquid of course):
- 20-40 (a little high so I'm about to do a PWC
pH - 8.2
- 1.024 (refractometer)
- 0 (running phoszorb)
I'm clutching at straws here - Any ideas as to what caused this? These results don't tell me what could have happened.
He was full size 4".
All other tank mates are acting as per usual.
