Unhappy Lost another one,My dear Morado :(

I had a feeling earlier today he wasnt gonna make it very long. And i was right. Looks like he died shortly after I left for work.

I cant take this anymore. I feel like I am the one killing my own fish. 3 within 2 weeks?! That cant be normal. I just....dont know.

I am super paranoid about all my others now. One of my corys dont look too good. So I dunno whats wrong with that one. Suppose I should isolate him/her. I dunno.

For now all my other bettas look fine. Acting fine. But so did Morado and Bella right before they died.

I am just,overwhelmed and confused.

Am i killing my fish?? Maybe I shouldnt have fish.

Sorry about Morado. If you are up on your water changes and always treat the water then it is not you. They may have changed something with your water from the tap.

A few years back I had a tank almost fully die off after running over 4 years with out a fish lost. It was after water was deemed safe to drink again after Hurricane Wilma, but there was something in it, even treated that my fish could not handle. I lost my double dark super veil tail angel fish that were 5 years old and as big as a softball around. They should have lived another 4-5. the only fish that lived through that were some pristella tetras.

Thanks guys. Good to hear its not me. But we always blame ourselves eh?

We have had alot of rain this past month. Way more than normal for us. I think out of all the days in June,we have not had a full day of sun. At least a bit rain every day,even if it was just a drizzle. I suppose that could affect our water? They havent flushed the lines since early May.

So thats the only other thing I can think of,if not the food. But on that same not,would it not affect all of my fish? Not just 3? For all I know my others are all sick too. I dunno.

Aww, that's sad. It's true, a lot of betta's have been passing lately, it sure makes you appreciate your fish more knowing something could happen.

Some of your fish may be more resistant to it like those pristella's were in my 55 planted.

Angel's, Cory's, zebra pleco, bristlenose pleco, zebra loaches, cardinal tetra's and a gourami were not so lucky.

Yeah. Well i just tested my water. The tap NOW is like 7.0. I tested Morados tank water (which I changed around same time as Bellas) and it was 7.8. I tested all my other tanks and they are in good ranges,as several are new and two just got moved. Fishy is at 7.8 as well. So, I think Bella was done in with ph shock,cause i changed her water the day before she stopped eating,then several days later she was dead.

With Morado, it may have compounded his problems maybe?? I dunno. Elvis? I dunno either.

just reading online now,the last days of his life,he had the exact symptoms of ph shock as well.
