hi everyone, I have some turquoise rainbows in my 54g . I fed the L264 a new tablet , and of course , everyone goes for them, even in the dark. I did this one time, next day one of my turquoise rainbows was swimming tail down. I fed everyone de-shelled peas for 2 days. He was still in trouble . I took him out , put him in the q-tank . More peas for him. Did not eat , had trouble swimming then died same day.

Thought it was bloat or swim bladder disease but not sure and also what caused this ? I do daily 10% to 15% wc's .

2 Aqua Clear 70 HOB filters and one hydra-sponge filter.

I have had the rainbows for about 10 months and all fine till this. Any ideas what he died of and why ? thanks,

Hi Georgie, I've been away for a bit so sorry I'm late onto this one.

Was there any marks on the fish at all, mature fish or juvie?
