Sunny Posted October 28, 2021 Share Posted October 28, 2021 *There are pictures of this at the end of this post, so don’t scroll if you don’t want to see it* Hi all… lots been going wrong over here lately. Just when I was thinking I was doing great, my two guppies don’t make it through quarantine, my seemingly healthy dwarf guarami just got dropsy, now my skirt tetras are… disintegrating? I have some skirt tetras from when I first set up the tank in December. They had ick when I got them but after the med trio have seemed healthy. They spawn every other week or so. About two or three months ago, I noticed that one of them looked like he’d been half eaten. Tail and fins ripped up, bloody gash on side… really gruesome. I thought the dwarf gourami had got him, or maybe he didn’t like the recent water change? I dosed the tank with maracyn just in case. Tonight, I noticed another skirt tetra like this! He seemed absolutely fine the past few days and even this afternoon when I checked the tank. Except this time, the guorami had been in a hospital tank the past few days with dropsy. Any ideas?! I’ve felt awful losing the other fish but it’ll really suck if this is the fate of the rest of them. Water parameters below. Other tank mates are cherry barbs (not in the tank when the first tetra died), 4 more skirt tetras, and two guppy fry in a floating Tupperware.
