I lost 3 of my sorority girls a few days ago and it was all my fault. One of the dead is my beautiful red Mercedes pictured to the left
I had bought community fish at Petco before and they died so I should have learned my lesson then.
My next big mistake was thinking since I had cories from Petco survive before, then I could go ahead and add a new cory and all would be fine. NOT.
I just plopped him in the tank and he was dead in a day. STILL NOT THINKING I bought my baby double tail and put him in the same contaminated tank in a breeder box THE NEXT DAY
My stupidity shocks even myself.
Long story short 3 females dead, I did a 100% water change and so far everyone else seems fine, even the baby. Further crisis averted? I'm not convinced. I wake up every morning and examine the tank.
MORAL: QT new fish, simple as that. I'm thankful the carnage wasn't worse
