Hello all. This morning upon viewing my tank I found one of my male Sunburst Platys dead on the gravel. I scooped him out immediately and took care of the matter properly. He had no signs of a fungus or anything. Looks perfectly normal. My tank is 50 US Gallons, and my tank has been cycled for 2 months now. Immediately checked my water parameters and they were:
Everything seemed alright so I let it go thinking maybe there was something wrong with him. I have had them for 10 days now and all my fish are properly acclimated before being released into the tank. Fast forward to tonight after work and I see another male Sunburst staying near the gravel in a corner. I just did my weekly water change of 10%. My Nitrates have never been over 20 so I don't do more.
My current stock is:
8 Sunburst Platys 2 males now and 6 females.
10 long finned Black Skirt(Widow) Tetras
10 Zebra Danios
4 Neon Tetras. ( I know 4 isn't a lot but they were taken from a friend who couldn't care for them any longer.)
Feeding schedule is Omega One Tropical Flakes as their staple diet 1 small pinch in the morning 1 at night. San Francisco Bay frozen bloodworms once or twice a week (using tweezers to drop them in after being thawed in tank water) with one day a week without food. They are all little piggies especially my black skirts :)
I have a Marineland HOT Magnum canister filter. Rated up to 55 gallons.
Heater is set to 76 degrees. No real plants. Everything is artificial. I will link to a video I took of him swimming. mostly to show how he looks and what his behavior is at the moment. If anyone could recommend a course of action I'll gladly listen to any and all advice. (Of course he wants to swim in the video seeing as how hes camera shy ><)
(Wife is talking about our Hedgehogs day outside ignore that)
I tried to include everything I could think of seeing as how 90% of help me posts give almost no info at all.
