Sick guppies #1
Hi i have a 80L tank with 9 guppies and a small pleco{ temporary} abot four mounths ago one of the big guppys started to bloat and 2 days later one of the other smaller guppies passed.

Im really asking for any help and suggestions.. Tank info: 700L/H external filter temp 26 water para:0,0,5 W every week 25% theres a small driftwood and natural quartz

Re: Sick guppies #2
Is the water hard or soft? Soft water can cause this in guppies. Otherwise it may be just their general genetic weakness.
