I HAVE LOST TWO CLOWN LOACHES IN THE LAST 10 DAYS.
THE FIRST ONE I FOUND WAS STUCK TO THE INTAKE TO MY PUMP.
THE HE WAS PRETTY MUCH SUCK UP , SO I COULD NOT TELL IF HE WAS SICK.THEN MY TIGER BARBS STARTED GETTING BODY FUNGUS ON THERE TAILS.I THEN DID A 50 WATER CHANGE THEN TURN UP MY HEATER TO 84 DEGREES AND STARTED USING MELAFIX. I AM ON MY 7TH DAY OF THE TREATMENT (THE FINGUS WENT AWAY ON THE TIGER BARBS AFTER THE 4TH DAY) AND I JUST FOUND MY 2ND LOACH DEAD AND MY THRID AND LAST LOACH ON ITS SIDE GASPING.I DO NOT SEE ANY SIGN OF THE DISEASE THAT I AM FIMILAR WITH.THE LAST ONE I PUT IN MY EXTRA 10 GALLON TANK BUT HE DOESN'T LOOK GOOD.THE ONLY DIFFERENCE I SEE, IS THAT HE IS A LITTLE DARKER AROUND THE FACE.
IF ANYBODY HAS ANY INFO , PLESAE LET ME KNOW.
THANKS
