Very Sad day for me today, We had a power cut for 2 hrs in the early hrs of the morning, So due to that and Stress i have lost most of my fish, I am left now with 2 cardinal tetra and 1 lonely Platy.
We have done everything possible now to help these little guys survive, So far so good, Thanks to Wolfie (My Son) who was a big help out,
I am in half a mind now not to get any more fish, As I am relatively new to fish keeping (only since Feb) of this year,
Has anyone else gone trough this? (
i lost 25 adult african cichlids i was gutted but i didn't give up even though i was like you and felt the same.
If i were you i give it another go and hopefully this won't happen again for a long time.
Something fishie going on here
Dont give up!!! Its not nice when it happens, but we all learn from mistakes and from the issues that crop up from time to time!!!!
Keep at it.
A few additional water changes might do no harm too, test water weekly and if somethings not right... then do daily checks till everything comes back into place
"The only thing that burns in Hell is the part of you that won't let go of your life; your memories, your attachments. They burn them all away. But they're not punishing you.They're freeing your soul."
there are a few other factors, the fish already had advanced white spot which I had treated the day before including increasing the temperature and a recent issue with filtration didnt helo, however all is now in hand and the tank is being run on organic aqua for the next while
