Danios slowly dying?

For some reason my danios are slowly dying. First when I came home from a friends I noticed that my Glofish had died. Now another one of my. Danios are looking really weird and isn't very active. What is happening? Any ideas?

What are your water parameters? Tank size? Temp?

How old is the tank? Any signs of diseases?

I have noticed the he has been getting slimmer over the days. I turned down the current and allowed him some more attention, but it still isn't helping.

82 is a bit warm for goldfish. Not sure about danios, but it sounds a bit warm. Try lowering heat down a bit. They do well from 70-82 I think so try lowering temp to like 76-78??? Hope it works. Good luck.

The warmer the water, the less oxygen. I would keep them at 76f. But lower temp gradually.

I have air stones so oxygen is not a problem. And the temp ranges from 78-82

Have you used strong household cleaners? Could those in the atomosphere of the house have hurt the tank?

No everything is fine. My water parameters. My temperature. I'm kind of freaked out because another two died in the past week. Help me please. Am I not feeding them enough?

I agree with the temperature. I would try to keep it around 76 and see if that helps. How old are the danios? I lost a whole school and it turned out that my angel fish was chasing them to death. By the time I figured out what was wrong, it was too late.

The way to help them recover from stress enduced "waisting" is a lower temperature.

I'm sure you're feeding them enough - danios generally have NO problem eating...

I'm not sure what is going on in your case BUT lower that temp and see if it helps. When their immune system becomes weakened by *whatever* sometimes they just can't recover. .

I would try frozen food. We always fed that when fish were shipped in.

GLOfish, not goldfish
Glofish = Danio

Best temp 72-78 deg
