  1. I changed the water and put jaffa back in the tank. I know you said to test the water first but after her death I thought it be best. The other fish seem fine at the moment I'll keep an eye on them and the water chemistry.
  2. Yes. I will see if I can find a colander that works in the morning. Right now I don't want to do anything that could stress her even more and send her over the edge. I'm kicking myself for not doing the flukes treatment earlier. Am I doing the right thing by just leaving the rank in the dark and leaving the room? I don't think there's much else I can do? And I don't want to switch on the light and stress her. I removed jaffa, the fish who upset her from the rank he's currently in a strategy container. Black y is still left in the tank. He was staying by her side and even supported her when she was floating on her side. I've never seen something so gentle from a fish. He was hovering underneath her. She was lying on top of him.
  3. Sorry but what do you mean with its my call? The colander? She's two and a half years old. I'll send the video and the test kit results. Video probably in the morning. Test kit in the afternoon. Do you think she has a chance. Can fish survive this. It seems like shock?!
  4. I don;t want to stress her out even more. So the lighst are switched off now. And I'm praying she survives it. But I don't have a lot of hope, She has never done this. She's been the healthiest fish I have ever had. She was never sick or anything. This is completely out of the blue. If she is still alive tomorrow I'll send a film. Is that okay?
  5. Hi. Thank you so much for getting back to me. No the other two were behaving absolutely normal until I added the Prazi. But they always act up a bit - shaking, sudden jolts and clamping when I do a flukes treatment. They seem to get flukes pretty bad.

  7. Good evening guys. It's been a long time. For months everything has been fine in my tank. I came back from work and my boyfriend pointed out that one of my fish has been swimming on the same spot (near the surface) since lunch time. she was fine this morning. So I gave them a 80% water change. I also noticed that she was gasping a lot, so started a flukes treatment. She perked up. Still seemed a bit week but was swimming around. Then one of my other fish attacked her. He always does this after a water change (he is a young male and I always think that it's mating behaviour). Well I had to get him out because he was really stressing her out. After a kefafel trying to catch him, she was thoroughly stress and floating on her side at the top of the tank. I dimed the light, added anti-stress and some ph regulating liquid. After a while she perked up again and started swimming about. Then all of a sudden she was on her side again. This time at the bottom of the tank. She has remained there, drifting, on her side, breathing but not swimming. I have switched off the lights and left the room. Sitting in bed in tears right now. Not sure she will make it through the night. There is nothing physically wrong with her apart from her behaviour. I have stupidly run out of my testing kit. Will buy one on amazon tomorrow. But by then it might be too late.
  8. Oh. That looks horrible. I do hope someone can figure out how to help the little guy. he's very cute
  9. Do you have anyone who could hold him while you use tweezers to get it out? Not sure. Just a suggestions until a mid cones to help.
  10. Yikes. Hope it is algae and if so easy to remove. Scary. Good luck to you two
