anewbie Posted December 11, 2022 Share Posted December 11, 2022 Is api general good for gill flukes or is there a better medicine? Also will it kill plants? I was looking at one of my fishes with a magnifying glass and i believe it has something a bit odd around the gill area; in this specific aquarium there has been premature deaths that don't occur in my other 5 aquariums but they have been scattered on a time line which makes me suspicious. The time between deaths have been approx every 6 to 8 weeks of individual fishes but until today i never saw anything i could explain for them - the tank has approx 30 fishes: 12 ember tetra (no effected) 6 eques cory 2 died about 12 weeks ago some guppies over a period of the past 2 months 6 died - maybe 12 left but only older ones died none of the young ones have died 1 borelli apisto died (the 2nd one has weird marks around the gills which make me suspect flukes) 2 sparking gourami died - 2 left one grumpy old female swordtail is in the tank; she has a bit of age maybe 3 years. I've never seen any out right aggression and no markings on the dead fishes. - The deaths have been scattered as i said over time not clumped and i suspect it was latent bacteria issue but now i'm thinking a parasite.
