I'm starting to think a sorority is just not for me. Out of the 11 females I had in the tank, only 5 remain alive. One doesn't look so good. I took the aggressive one out and there has been no more fighting but the sick one has buggy eyes and can hardly swim right. She wont eat. I feel like a failure. I lost one of my favorite girls this morning. Idk what to do next. Thinking of just rehoming the rest of the healthy girls and going with another type of fish for my 29 gal. I'm so depressed.
Was the tank cycled? did you clean plants/ornaments with something? anything new like conditioner? New live plants? don't give up yet! How new are all the girls? if fairly new, quarantine all for 2 weeks.
Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.
You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.
The tank is being cycled, fish-in. I lost one girl to dropsy and the other has fin rot. She is in a QT while the last two are in the 29 gal. I know its not good to keep only 2 females but I dont have a choice. I guess I could try one more time to restock the females it's just hard when they start dying like they were. The females are all very new except for the problem child, Shredder who no longer lives in the 29 gal due to her aggression.
