Not sure whats wrong - Sepae tetra color off

Hey everyone,

I have a serpae tetra who when purchased was not as "pink" as the others, but now he has lost color and remains solitary in a cave and when he finally came out he had a large patch of discoloration.

It did not appear to be ich, because it was too large of a spot and only one.

Any ideas?

Unfortunately I can't get a picture of it because he won't come out.

Also what precautionary measures should I take because I dont want to lose all of my fish...


FYI: Tank is still mid cycle, and there are bigger fish who could be harassing it

Maybe you could go and put him in a quartine tank and see how it goes.

See if he will pull through or not.

Thanks Aston

What are your readings? You indicate the tank is not cycled.....

Some fish are not as hardy as others and don't survive the cycling process.
