    Most of the fish in my big tank are looking pretty ill and I have no idea what the problem is.

    They’re clamped and bits of their fins look like they’re “eroding” – white stumps on the end of little tears/splits.

    Any ideas?

    Regular 10 day water changes as always.. if anything it seems to have come about AFTER doing a water change?

    I’ve hoyed some Myxazin in – it looks like a bacterial infection and I’m getting really worried.

    Have already lost both the female steindachneri and my last Panda.. the male Stein is on his last legs as is one of your old Satanopercoids (the runtish one).

    I think the Satanopercoid will recover but not looking too good for the Stein :/

    Aye and tbh I usually sit down and make sure they’ve eaten all their food anyway – now that I’m in the house they’re not on the auto feeder.

    I use a dechlorinator as standard and that claims to break up heavy metals.. dunno how true that is though.

    Hmm, ok mate. Try to grab some pics when you have time. Good luck with them in the meantime.

    It’s taken a nasty death toll.. two cories, tetra, two female steindachneri (looking like the male will die shortly too tbh). :'(

    The bigger fish are mostly fine, thankfully.

    It would make sense that the smaller fish would be affected first mate. Fingers crossed for the others.

    Not much else to show. Lots dead.. bigger fish are either seemingly fine or clamped with little white tufts in “fin rips” etc. One daemon has some white over the top of his eye.

    Mmm, it reminds me of ammonia burn. As I mentioned earlier mate, I think the water board may have added something odd to the supply that day you did your last water changes. They sometimes do this to help sanitise the pipes. I’d suggest a 30-50% water change today and again tomorrow. Good luck!

    Well apart from the aforementioned death toll they seem ok.

    They’ve unclamped now.. daemon still has a little bit of white on one eye but I think that’ll go fairly soon.

    Remaining lot: two cories, two of your satanopercoids, three daemon.

    Heavy losses

    Yeah, he’s tough as hell that one. Basically all of the smaller fishes died and the bigger ones made it through.. excluding the supernaturally tough cories
