Sci Posted November 15, 2021 Share Posted November 15, 2021 Hey guys. New here, but not new to keeping fish. Big time follower of aquarium Co-op. Got a cycled 36 gallon bowfront and got some new fish to put in with my existing fish. I do not have a quarantine tank as I just don't have the supplies and space. First time using the 3 med Trio and Out of the new fish I added almost all of them died in the first 24 hours of administering medication... I have never had this happen before! Added 2 blue rams, 4 ottos, and two hillstream loaches. 1 otto died, both loaches and 1 ram died. The other ram currently is gasping at the top of the tank. No fish was visibly sick but I know almost all of them have internal parasites as them come from tanks at the LFS. Figured the trio was a good idea as these are the fist new fish I have added in a long time. 0 ammonia 0 Nitrites 5 Nitrate. water turned cloudy and I am told this is normal. All of my fish that were already in the tank are acting normal and fine. So I am wondering if fish form the LFS are (to be expected) just generally unhealthy and the shock of a new tank and the meds done them in? Should I ride out the treatment or abandon it to prevent further deaths? I am a little disheartened here as I followed the directions exactly and have never had meds in which I had hope would help, In fact, kill most of my new fish...
