BenA Posted March 20, 2022 Share Posted March 20, 2022 Hello all. I hope that one of you might be able to help. 2 – 2.5 months ago I bought 2 pairs of Melanotaenia Parkinsoni, 3 weeks ago the 2 males died with few days in between them, no external signs could be detected. I took it as bad luck, talked with the shop and bought another 3. Within 4 days one of them started showing signs of ‘something is not right’, it was at the top of the tank with its gill covers wide open, no other signs. I took it back to the shop, they suspected gill flukes and treated it, yet the fish died 3 days latter. They have examened the gills but the gills looked ok. I have consulted the shop and it was suggested to treat my tank for flukes, which I did. During this time (started 4 days ago) another Parkinsoni started to keep itself to itself and today we found it dead, so now I am left with 2 males and 2 females. I have many other Rainbows in the tank and none of them display any issues, also all the Parkinsoni I bought are old stock that the LFS have since December. Today I tested the water and have carried a 50% water change. The parameters are: NH3 – 0; N02 – 0; PH – 8; KH – 8/9; GH – 17; NO3 – 25; PO3/4 – 5; Temp – 25C/77F. The tank is 400Ltr/106Gl and the fish are fed with frozen and dry food including Repashy Green. Thank you. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
