Lost 4 Oscars - Need Help Urgent

Unread postby Ansh681 » Fri Oct 21, 2011 12:10 pm

Hi

I got 2 tiger and 2 albinos from one of the LFS, later I added 2 more tigers and 2 parrots in my tank. One of the albinos were showing some signs of floating on the surface of the water, later it used to just flow with flow from the filter. Slowly and gradually others also started showing same signs. Today morning I checked out that 2 tigers and 2 albinos are dead. I did all that what I should have done before starting a new tank. Water cycle, anti-chlorine, meth, salt, water and filter medium from the other tank, ran it for more than 2 weeks. Transfer of fish was done the same as every hobbyist would have done it. They used to stay close to the filter, sucked up towards its outer grill. I'm worried now that one of the parrots are also showing the same sign.

Please help !

Regards
Himanshu

Himanshu, I am not a expert in fish Diseases,but Please post more information about your tank like size,how may fishes in the tank, feed, water change. I think it will help the experts.

Please clear following:
1. What is the temperature of the tank?
2. Is there Any external parasite is appearing on the body of fishes.
3. Are the fishes rubbing there body to glass/rocks/woods etc?
4. Are the taking food or not?

Temperature - 30C
They are not rubbing against anything
They (Remaining Oscars) are either staying in one corner of the tank or one of them goes close to filter and stays sucked on the outer grill of filter.
When I give them food they don;t simply jump for it..... When I leave the room and come back food is gone, Now this can also be coz of other fish like parrots.

One of the parrots is staying on the top of the filter. When I leave the room it comes down and hides under stones.
I've already lost 4 Oscars , don't want to leave any more.

That sounds like a case of internal parasites. lack of appetite. loss energy. constantly looking stressed.

epson salt bath is required.
Just cos it happened to you is no means for you to claim that it will happen to me. Exceptions aren't the rule.

I think your fishes are affected by Ichthyosporidium diseases. The fish may loose balance, hollow bellies. This disease affect the liver and kidneys. Go to the medical store and brought the tablet of metrogyl 400mg and mix in the aquarium day. Next day change 40% water and dose another tablet. Repeat the process for 10 days.

The tablet will not create any type of problem for other fishes.
