Okay so you may remember I posted a video of my fish tank about a week ago. It had just reached near perfection! Then disaster struck. I introduced 6 neon tetra purchased from Maidenhead Aquatics in Wembley. Within 12 hours two neons had died. Wthin 1 day 3 neons and 1 platy had died. Day 2 - and 2 black neons to add to the list - day 4 the rest of the neon tetra introduced 4 black neons and 1 penguin tetra have now died. This was undoubtedly a disease introduced by the recent additions (one of them appeared ill in the bag). My tank is now a disaster zone plants upturned and theming displaced from corpse recovery and the tank is now like a ghost town.
All this could have been avoided if I had invested in a quarantine tank. I've learnt my lesson the hard way.
I have no idea what this illness was. Definatly something that was a very quick lethal killer. All I can do now is daily water changes and go to maidenhead aquatics and moan till my mouth is dry.
