When it rains it pours! - Heartbroken!!

I just lost ALL of the fish in my 30 gallon (except for 1) in the last 3 days. All levels in the tank check out, no problems there, the fish were fine one day, then became lethargic and passed away in 12-24 hours of becoming lethargic. I have no idea what it could have been as they showed no outward signs of illness. I lost 3 platies, 3 cory cats and 8 female bettas (including my 2 marbled veiltail females from Thailand) I am absolutely heartbroken!!











One hand reaches out and pulls a lost soul from harm. While a thousand more go unspoken for, they say what good have you done? By saving just this one... It's like whispering a prayer in the fury of a storm. And I hear them saying... You'll never change things...

That's awful! You must be devastated. Something must have been very wrong (I'm thinking temperature, toxins, or something really bad with the water.). No disease an come on that fast and on so many species. Sip fishies.

Oh my goodness, I am so sorry! I really hope that you can figure out what the problem was, but if not at least you know it wasn't something you could control, and that they went quickly and didn't have to suffer. Again I'm so sorry for your losses.

Kindness and respect should be shown to all animals, no matter if they are furry, scaly, big, or small. Be a hero to the animals and GO VEGAN!
