Cloudy water, gasping fish
In my cichlid tank, the water has been cloudy all week...not much, just not clear. I'm thinking the chemical (CHEMIPURE) bags need to be changed.
But now, one of the fish is staying in the corner and gasping and today...looked like it threw up a red (bloody) piece of flesh... it looks like it is choking on a piece of substrate (crushed argonite). All the others seem fine and are eating.
PH - over 8.7
Ammonia - 0
Nitrate - haven't tested
