And another one bites the dust
RIP wallflower

I think the next one to go is gonna be ferb and/or Mr Magic Mushrooms
Mr shrooms is getting pretty old - about 2ish years so his issue may be unrelated to whatever else is killing my fish. I bough 5 gallons of poland spring water to test out sakura's theory that it is the water itself that is the problem. My mother mentioned something about the water here is causing one of her friends mother's to become very ill and that there have been some alrets about using tap water recently.

RIP

Could it be that there is something in the water that is toxic to the fish, but that you can't test/don't have a test for?

That's what Sakura suggested. I am testing that theory out now with Ferb by slowly switching out tank water for bottled water.This is kinda hard to do since he is in a cup that is floating in a 10G. I changed the tank water 2 days ago and added jungle parasite clear in case he has gill flukes. I dont waht him to be in 100% bottled water but I dont want him in too much tank water if that is the issue...dont want to shock him if the chemistry is different.

If i set him free into the tank they he will either fall into the sand or he wont be able to swim to the surface. I think the next one to go is either gonna be him or Mr Shrooms. He has bubbles comming out his gills

Hopefully you can at least work out whether it is your water or not causing the issues.

It sucks losing fish and not getting any answers.
