Happy New Year Everyone and health & happiness in 2004 for us all !!
I am hoping you can help me. I am a new poster and found your site very helpful.
We have a 20 gallon community tank. We have had gourami's, tetra's, danio's, etc in there for about 3 1/2 years. We had the two most wonderful clown loaches ever and they were thriving.
My partner went out last week and bought 5 rummy nosed tetras and some little blue danios and a giant danio and added them to the tank and since then we have had all 5 rummy nose tetra's die and my fav clown loachie. I am soo upset. Do you think the stress of the giant danio could have killed him?
Any advice much appreciated.
Thanks so much.
Tracy
