Lennie Posted February 22 Share Posted February 22 (edited) Hey guys, Sadly I have lost my first fish after maybe years of not losing any new fish. It has been active and eating. It has not shown any sign of disease or bloating, and I am pretty much shocked tbh. Today, when I woke up, I saw one of the red lizards was sucked in on its side on the HOB prefilter sponge. I don't know which one, they are all similar. I found it weird as normally they were grazing on it, thought maybe the sucking power was too strong somehow, which I don't think so ( it is an Aquaclear50). Anyway, at least there was a fine sponge, and when I saved the fish, it was moving pretty okay, so I didn't think of any problems. It didn't seem to have any body deformity. After around 6-7 hours, the guy randomly died. He has been active and moving around nonstop. I'm still shocked. When I checked his body, he seemed to have something like a small bubble inside its belly. Could it be caused of being sucked in the sponge, or some sort of disease? I am not good with diseases. I test the water everyday whenever I add new fish. Nitrate lower than 10, Ammonia and Nitrite always 0, gh is around 8, kh 19, ph. 8.0-8.2. Thanks for the help in advance, Here are the pics of the fish: Before someone else tags you, @Colu, @Odd Duck :') Edited February 22 by Lennie Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
