It's maybe a long-shot, but perhaps someone put their hands in the tank with soap or lotion on them?


Sorry if I repeat any "obvious" info you already know, but I like to cover all the bases, just in case.

You may never know what happened. I have a suspicion that something killed my boy Fish. (I mean how does a fish go from perfectly happy and healthy to dead in 10 minutes?!?!?). But I've never found anything and his neighbor, Blue Jeans, has remained healthy.

I'm so sorry, this happened to me too a few months ago with my 30g community tank and it was really devastating. One day, I noticed one of my black mollies had died, so I removed him, did some tank maintenance and that was that. Then another fish died, so I became worried..I did the same thing. Then the next day, all of my fish except a Giant Danio and a red Swordtail were dead..It was really depressing because there was absolutely nothing outwardly wrong with them, and I didn't know what was wrong or how to treat it.

I just wanted to give up, but I didn't...These things can happen and unfortunately the only thing we can do is take extra care and watch closely to make sure we can catch something going wrong before the worst happens. :)

Thanks everyone! I know there are a million possibilities as to what really killed them! This weekend i'll take the tank down bleach and vinegar everything, and start again... cause I guess that's all I really can do... Some of those girls were really wonderful though... It's so heartbreaking...

So sorry :( :(


Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
