    A couple nights ago, Grumpy(my huge bronze cory)and one of my female platies passed away from natural causes [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] . One of Grumpy's best buddies, Buddy, another bronze cory, is still in there somewhere in that huge 29 gallon, so I bought him another bronze cory as a buddy, since bronze cories only school with other bronze cories. I also got two other female platies. One is deep red towards the tail end of her body and orange towards the head end of her body and half her tail is black. The other one is bright, orange juice orange with half black body and half black tail and her body is black speckled. They're all so cute, which comforts me in my grieving. Also, just tonight, one of my two jumbo danios, Jailbird, in the same tank, died presumably from bloat. The other danio, which is a longfin golden danio, seems to miss him, too. But I won't risk getting another danio, because these two were the only really humble danios, which never went after the angelfishs' fins, while once I got another batch of danios, which permanently tore one of my angelfish's fins out of whack, and I got rid of those danios by bringing them back to the petshop. Yet the two jumbos never touched the angelfish, even with the aggressive ones around. ***sighs sadly*** Well, anyways, me is sad.

    Rest in peace, Grumpy, No-name(platy), and Jailbird. :'(

    Hi Flytrapgurl,

    Sorry to hear about your loss [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] . You know, if you want a zippy fish like a danio in your tank but one that is nice all the time try Scissortail Rasboras -- like 5 of them.

    Are you sure that the fish were lost from "natural causes"? It seems very odd that you would loose 2 fish in one night! Especially long lived fish like Corys. Did you check your water chemistry? How are your nitrates? I would also check for amonia and nitrite! And if you dont find anything there start looking at other factors

    I'm so sorry to hear that flytrapgurl... your 'jumbo' danios were probably giant danios, a different species than just regular danios, and giant danios never nip fins [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    PH: 7.0. Ammonia: 0.0. Temperature: a constant 78* F.

    And both of them were quite old. The cory was over an inch long and was slowing down a bit with age, and the platy was large and old, too.

    EDIT: Thanks for all the comfort, guys.

    Did you check for Nitrates? Nitrites?

    Cool

    I don't have a test for those. But it can't be that, because ALL of my other fish in there are doing perfect; no sicknesses at all.

    BTW, thanks for the comfort, lil_flytrap_boy [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
