Sharks take O2 directly from water surface, so dissolved oxygen shouldnt be issue, they died with some other reason.
Do you daily keep them at 30deg?
For more O2 use more surface agitation, top filter with dripping water helps.

Most of the aquarium stores selling methylene blue in Delhi after mixing water in the solution. So it is not so much effective. Join the meet on sunday I will bring some lab grade methylene blue.

I treat white spots by adding a heater to the tank.. The disease is caused by sudden decrease in water temperature.. this disease doesn't show up in larger cement {rearing} tanks.

Hi All,
I have a Diamond Angel fish which had White spots. I have done the treatment as given and now I can not see the White spots, however it has lost a bit of it's skin on both sides. It has not eaten since last few days. I have kept it in a different tank and do a regular water change.

Please advice what do I do?

Thanks and Regards,

Navin
