So I've been having nothing but dying fish over the past week. I'm stopping with breeding for the next month or so. I'm no longer planning any lines other than my whites. I'm getting some blue and pastel halfmoons and I'll import long finned whites later but for now just the white and B1 line. I'm also pulling the fish room down next week, jarring everyone in cups and sanitizing.

Oh, no! Are you losing babies, adults, or all ages?

I hope you get everything back in order soon.

Just adults. The fish I breed never get sick (well other than typical lethargy or ick). The whites are some of the healthier ones (thank God). Sanitizing everything and buying antibiotics. Also talking to top IBC breeder to help me. Going to the store for more cups and ice cream salt (same as AQ salt but a LOT cheaper).

Cool

Sorry to hear your bad luck MrV. Hope you can recoup!

Perhaps some heavy metal in the water that conditioner did not remove? Metals tend to be additive over time and not an immedately noticable thing. But can be fatal. Perhaps have your water tested, and a good idea to switch to bottled water for drinking for a time being until you get results? Like the canary in the coal mine, these little creatures can detect lower levels of toxins than we can....

A good time to re-organize a new fish room!

Best of luck!
Jeff.

Hexamita according to an IBC disease expert. Bleaching everything and adding salt to my water again (haven't for a few years). No more snails or live plants either. I'm done with disease.

This is also a good reminder that I need to be more sanitary in the fish room. sanitizer for the nets.... and so on. It just takes one bug to wipe out a lot of work.

I'm so sorry DOM. I know how much you wanted to expand and do other lines and spawns.
