GhostLincoln Posted July 27, 2021 Share Posted July 27, 2021 Hi there, I picked up a few assorted platies a few weeks ago. Seemed fine (I even had a fry - that promptly got eaten I think), however, two died within the last couple of days and the remaining seem to have red gills. My other stock - some pygmy corys, beckford pencilfish, and amano shrimp all seem to be fine. Ammonia seems like its the main cause of red gills on the internet, however, I have 0 ppm ammonia according to my API test kit (see below). So I am wondering if this is a disease? Apologies for the quality of the images I will try to get clearer ones. Any help is greatly appreciated. Water Parameters: pH - 7.3-7.5 Nitrates - 40 ppm (moderately planted) Hardness - ~8 degrees Nitrite - 0 ppm Ammonia - 0 ppm KH/Buffer - ~5 degrees Water Temperature - ~79 degrees Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
