Unexpected Green Neon Tetra Death


Recommended Posts

The death happened in the morning, when I woke up all seem to do fine except for the one tetra who has a hard time swimming. An hour later I check on the tank, and one of the tetras is dead. It was not the tetra that had a hard time swimming up right. That had surprised me. I checked the ammonia, and there was 0 ppm as I took the fish out probably a few minutes after it had died. The gills area looks all red and on the side of it. Does anyone know the cause of this?

Looks like it's hemorrhaging it could have injured it's self is there anything in in the tank that it could have got trapped behind or swim  into

The only things in the tank are pleco tubes and a small sponge filter, I do not know how it could have been hurt by these objects.
