No Longer A 'red' Cap

Recommended Posts

Guest Nemosmom

40gl, Eclipse 3, all water tests come back normal.

About 3 weeks ago after I came home from an overnight stay at my parents, I found my algae eater dead and my Red Cap Oranda stark white. She seems healthy now still with no color. She has been in a sick tank and I have treated her for internal parasites, external parasites with antibiotics but now she is on a break after the ammonia burns caused from the water conditioner a pet store recommended (Aqua Tetra something) She eats, but she's a tad skiddish.

But where did her color go and will it come back??????

What exactly are your water parameters (ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, pH)?

Fish sometimes lose their color when they are stressed or otherwise unwell.

What are you treating your fish for? All those meds will take a toll on your fish.
