This angelfish I was treating for fungus(?) died after an ammonia spike.

  • pH 7.5

  • Nitrite 0

  • KH/Buffer 40
  • Water Temperature 79F
  • After the white fuzz mostly disappeared from his head this morning, I noticed a deep pink gash where the fuzz used to be above his left eye. This was the second time I tried treating this fish with Maracyn Oxy. It appeared to have treated the infection the first time I quarantined him, this second time is when I saw the gash, though I'm pretty sure the ammonia spike is what did him in.
