As many of you may remember I was heat treating this tank for ich when I went on vacation and I turned the ac
off.Lost four fish while I was gone and had to assume the tank got too hot.Still think thats the case.
But...I repopulated the tank with more tigerbarbs,a few cherry barbs and another algea eater.I did break a rule of thumb though and bought these new fish on delivery day...something I never do....so I knew that I may lose some of these fish for whatever reason.
So when I lost the tigerbarb I didn't give it much thought.Then one of the cherry barbs was dead the next day (yesterday).Now today another cherry barb is dead...not sure if either was the origanal one or new one....at least one of the two had to be new as there only one in the tank before the new poplation was added.
What really worries me is the kissing fish that died today as well.This was not a new purchase and was in the tank before the vacation and survived the heat up while I was gone.
I don't have a clue as to whats going on.The 3 rosies and rainbow are part of the first fish added and look to be doing really well.The water tests pefectly.As far as the fish that have died I could see nothing as far as symptoms....just either found em dead in the morning,or found em checking out.
One thing I have seen that may be a clue is on occasion I do see a fish swimming in one place,but pointing straight down.Not sure if these are the ones that died or not and I havn't seen it often but I thought I'd mention it.
Is there some medication I should add?Something that cures lots of different stuff? any thoughts are appreciated because I don't know what to think about this...I missing something,but i don't know what...
