So Bummed Out

Recommended Posts

Out of the thousands of fry I had last year, two were truly outstanding. They are really great - truly great - examples of Broadtail Ryukin. I have been thrilled, watching those two outgrow all their spawnmates, deepening in the body and growing massive muscle - evey at 2 inches in size they are impressive.

Yesterday morning they were both fine and eating heartily. Last night, one was on his side on the bottom. I can find nothing wrong - no parasites, no water parameters off, nothing...........

:cry1

Oh no I hate when that happens. All it can mean is something we can't see or treat. A bad heart or bad liver ect...

So sorry your going threw this.

O how sad. :cry Keep hoping, bouncing back is not unheard of! I'll be thinking about the little guys.

Upside down, or on their side? I only ask because the fish the you gave my sister is upside down (the smaller one, the big one died). But I don't even know if they are from the same hatch. But I thought maybe I would mention it. Maybe it's a coincidence, but maybe it tells you something.....?

Either way I will be hoping for the best for all of them. :hug

Wow, that is a real bummer. All that hard work and potential now laying on its side. Somtimes even with perfect care, things can go totally wrong in an instant. I hope you little guy pulls through and this bad day is just a memory.

OH, Sarah! I am sorry...... :cry1

The little one is on it's side on the bottom. They have been very stable in the water - a problem at times with the really deep bodied ones.... but in 12 hours or less, it is a downer. I am fasting (not the easiest with little ones) and will see what I can do. But it does not bode well.

Here is a shot -with my usual photographic quality (non-existant)..... the matching mate is the larger one in the back. He is much better than his other spawn mates in the front....about 1.5 inches in body both length and height with a nice tail...... The other has not decolored quite as much, yet... but is nearly a match.

Oh Daryl, I am so sad to hear that!

I don't like the mysteries there. Obviously your water is good and don't have nitrate problems like some of us! I wish there was something I could do or say! Fins crossed! :heart

Don't get me wrong, I'm so, so sorry for your fishies' troubles!, but as I've been struggling with problems that have no discernable cause myself, I'm just glad to see that someone much, much more knowledgeable than I has troubles too. Anyway, such beauties to have this happen.... I wish you all the best my dear!
