Guys I just got the worst news in the world!!...Im Heartbroken...!!

Ok so yesterday I left for a 4 day vacation with my bf. Before I left I checked the fish and I noticed that one of my females had passed on... It was one of my lovely red HMs from Betta_Affinity. I didn't see anything obviously wrong with her, no bloating, fungus, etc. and she had been fine the day before. So I removed her, did a water change and checked on everyone else. Everyone looked fine, perky, no one looked sick or even stressed.

Well I just got a call from my mom... She said when she went to feed the girls... All but one of them were dead... even the 4 cories are dead... Nothing on them... no signs of illness... Just dead... 9 females and 4 cories What happened!?!?!? This totally killed my vacation... I am so upset right now!!!

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

Mom moved the last girl into a critter keeper, it's my maroon cambodian veiltail... I hope she makes it... I don't know what happened... All I can think of is that the tank somehow got contaminated with something... but I dont know what, thats the only thing I can think of that would kill so fast and not show any signs.. but i dont know... anyone else have any ideas?

Oh my gosh, that's terrible. I'm so sorry!! I hope you're last girl makes it. I can't think of anything that could've killed all of those fish without showing any signs.

*hugs* I'm so sorry Zenandra!!

The only thing I can think that would kill all the fish so suddenly would be something in the water itself and not an illness per se. Do you know what your test readings were on the day the fish died? Also what about the temperature of the tank? Is it possible the heater malfunctioned?

I'm sorry it happened.. and on your vacation too I hope you figure it all out soon and don't lose any more fish.

I'm sorry for the losses!! It could simply be something was sprayed in the air and accidentally drifted into the tank... It could be more... It's devastating how something so simple could effect something so much... Here's to hoping the last little girl pulls through! RIP, girlies and cories. Hope you find out what it was so you can fix it up again.
