Fish Tank: June 2003 Archives

Darned fish >:(

Lost another two Danios this week, so I'm down to one left :( The one that's left is actually Queen Z, the big female that patrols the top of the tank. She is considerably smaller than she was a week or so ago, I'm thinking she probably laid a bunch of eggs. Either that or she's dying along with the rest of the danios :(

I'm also missing one neon tetra and one of the Siamesis. I think they may have died and been eaten also (the two danios I pulled out had been eaten down to their bones, and the Angels are looking rather plump). Maybe I'm just not feeding the angels enough and they're picking on the other fish? Who knows..

Lost another two danios today. Well actually one isn't dead, but she doesn't look very happy so I pulled her out to let her rest in peace (the angels were picking at her fins in the main tank). But then I could only see three remaining, I couldn't find the other one. I just found it, floating upside down amongst some plants :(

So now I only have three Danios left, and I suspect they will start dying off soon too :(

Danios are supposed to be hardy fish, able to cope with less-than-ideal water quality. And yet they're the only casualties I've had since I setup my tanks.

Not happy Jan!
