Sadly Riot passed away :'(....We had school only till 11 today because of bad snow conditions ...i thought they would be fine for a couple hours, i mean they were just fine this morning, just doing the usual things. But i got home and looked in the tank...I couldnt figure out were Riot went... I found him finless in the fake plants i put in there for Athena. I started crying because i was prepared if Riot killed Athena but wasnt prepared for this.

Im going to miss him :'(

On top of that i think Ceasar (my other crown tail) has SBD or something. He isnt active and he just hangs out at the top of the water, and wen he dives he has to wedge himself between the plant and the tank to stay down. he also has been freaking out a lot. But he is still eating so thats good.

Awww, I'm so sorry about Riot! Sometimes males get killed too. It's just their nature. Is Caesar bloated at all? You could try fasting him for a day or two and see if that helps. RIP Riot. :(

Im so sorry about Riot! That sucks, thats what happen to one of my males when i first started a long time ago, my female jumped out of her hurricane globe and when i woke up the males fins were totally gone, he died some time later! As for your other male, i would try garlic guard by SeaChem as it is an additive for your food, and it will help clear out his system as well as prevent any internal and some external disease.

You can get that online or just about any lfs, you'll have to ask someone for it, it is probably in the saltwater section of your store, and another good thing to use is marine salt not just your aquarium salt but the marine salt have minerals and vitamins that heal fish much better than regular salt. Also if you want to be cheap about the garlic, go to the grocery store and buy a garlic clove (0.89 cents) and peel the outer layers off, then get a small pan and cut the garlic as small as you can cut it, or get like a hammer etc, and crush it, then add a bit of water to the pan and put the all the cloves into the pan and bring it to a boil, till it is nice and brown, then drain the liquid, and toss the chunks and keep the liquid and then you can let your food sit in the mixture, it works great against disease and the fish love it, but it smells so bad, like garlic everywhere. Hope this helps
