 Hi  Friends,  
 
 Its  been  two  months  now  ..  that  i  have  these  two  fishes  in  my  quarantine  tank.  
 I  am  talking  about  a  Rummy  nose  &  a  Cherry  Barb.  No  sooner  did  they  show  signs  of  sickness  i  moved  them  in  another  tank.  
 Both  seemed  likely  to  give  up  any  moment  then..  but  now  its  two  months  neither  fish   is  willing  to  give  or  to  survive  better.  I  mean  no  signs  of  improvement   Mad   
 1.  This  Rummy  nose  ..  was  on  the  verge  of  death  when  i  moved  him  in  a  quarantine  tank.  Like  how  most  fishes  give  up  gasping  for  air.  His  body  shape  arched  ..  wasnt  swimming  properly..  kept  rolling  ..  so  i  thot  its  a  matter  of  day  or  two.  But  then  this  has  streched  till  two  months..  with  a  slight  improvement  in  swimming  below  the  water  level  now  but  the  body  is  still  arched.  The  water  is  constantly  highly  aerated  ...  i  often  do  20%  water  changes  &  dose  it  with  Mr.  Blue  liquid.  
 
 2.  Cherry  Barb  :  Within  a  couple  of  week's  time  this  one  cherry  barb  started  to  float  on  the  water  surface.  So  i  put  him  in  the  same  tank  as  the  rummy  nose.  within  days  i  observed  that  it  couldnt  shut  its  mouth  like  others  ..  so  again  i  thought  ..  Its  his  time  now.  i  waited  ..  waited  ..  waited  ..  and  i  am  still   Sad   
 
 For  less  Stress  for  the  'Survivors'  the  tank  is  in  a  dark  area.  Both  of  them  are  well  fed  ..  I  have  no  clue  even  if  they  are  eating  or  not.  I  cant  risk  to  leave  them  back  to  the  main  tank  cause  there's  this  Monster  RAM  always  on  the  hunt  of  weak  fishes.  
 
 Any  inputs  guys  ???  Because  I  am  soo  loosing  patience.  Planing  for  setting  up  a  Fire  Newt  Tank.

 This  is  amazing.   Rummy  nose  tetras  are  such  flimsy  fishes  that  making  them  survive  in  a  normal  tank  itself  is  a  great  deal.   And  you're  saying  that  you  have  a  sick  rummy  nose  tetra  and  it  has  been  holding  like  that  for  almost  2  months?!
 
 May  be  the  fish  has  some  deformity  and  that's  why  its  body  is  arched?   
 
 I  have  not  heard  of  any  fish  disease  prolonging  for  more  than  2  months.   The  result  is  known  within  a  few  days  to  weeks  -  one  way  or  the  other.   
 
 Question  to  you:  Do  you  have  a  larger  school  of  rummy  nose  tetras  in  your  main  tank?   Are  they  doing  good?   If  so,  I'll  suggest  that  you  leave  this  poor  fish  along  with  its  friends.
 
 And  I'll  suggest  the  same  for  the  cherry  barb  as  well.
 
 I  think  your  answer  to  the  question  will  provide  clues  to  whatsoever  has  happened  to  your  fish.

 Hi  Shankar,  
 
 thank  you  for  your  feedback  ..  
 here's  my  reply  to  your  questions  ..
 
 ->  May  be  the  fish  has  some  deformity  and  that's  why  its  body  is  arched?
               "It  was  all  well  while  it  was  with  its  group  ...  the  moment  it  started  to  gasp  for  air  &  i  quarantined  it  ..  the  deformation  started"
 
 ->  Do  you  have  a  larger  school  of  rummy  nose  tetras  in  your  main  tank?   Are  they  doing  good?   If  so,  I'll  suggest  that  you  leave  this  poor  fish  along  with  its  friends.  
             "  Yes  ..  all  of  'em  doing  good.  I  cant  leave  this  deformed  fish  ..  as  there's  this  RAM  pair  which  has  breed  in  my  main  tank  which  pokes  all  others  while  defending  eggs  ...  &  i  dont  want  to  be  guilty  of  killing  this  tetra  after  bringing  him  back  from  heaven  ..  lol"
 
 
 ->  And  I'll  suggest  the  same  for  the  cherry  barb  as  well
            "  Again  ..  same  reason  i  cant  transfer  him  back  ..  HOw  do  i  treat  it  open  mouth  ?  It  wont  Shut  like  others  ?"

 Rummy  nose  tetras  are  tight  schooling  fishes.   One  fish  being  alone  in  a  quarantine  tank  (which  I  suppose  is  bare  bottom  with  no  places  to  hide  etc.)  itself  is  a  cause  of  stress  to  these  fishes.
 
 Same  is  the  case  with  cherry  barbs  as  well  (though  they  don't  school  so  much).      
 
 As  said  earlier,  no  disease  prolongs  for  more  than  2  months  in  fishes.   So  as  soon  as  you  get  a  chance,  bring  those  fishes  to  their  groups.
 
 IMO,  the  fishes,  if  kept  alone,  with  all  this  stress,  may  die  sooner  or  later.
 
 (apart  from  the  arched  bodies,  look  for  any  other  signs  of  disease  -  torn/  rotting  fins,  white  spots  (ich),  bloated  bodies,  flared  gills  etc.   If  your  fishes  do  not  show  any  of  these  signs,  just  give  them  peace  by  moving  them  to  their  group.__

 I  have  observed  this  in  bigger  tetras  like  Congo.   Their  jaw  bone  doesn't  close  shut  and  it  appears  that  the  fish  is  always  keeping  its  mouth  open.   I  have  seen  that  it  gets  alright  a  few  days  later,  sometimes  a  lot  of  days  later.
 
 As  said,  check  if  both  the  fishes  are  alright  otherwise.   If  you  don't  sense  any  other  disease,  leave  them  in  the  main  tank.     Perhaps,  they'll  become  better  when  they're  among  their  friends.

 Hey  Shankar,  
 
 i  got  news  !  ..  One  Bad  ..  One  Good
 As  per  your  suggestion  ..  i  let  the  patients  in  the  main  tank  along  with  their  troops  ..
 
 The  Barb  couldnt  make  it  a  day  more  ..
 
 But  to  my  surprise  ..  the  Deformed  Rummy  nose  is  doing  pretty  well.  Even  though  he  fails  to  keep  up  with  the  rest  ..  he  tries  his  best.  
 Whats  most  amazing  is  that  he's  now  eating  .  as  in  coming  right  to  the  top  to  pick  his  share.  
 
 Thanks  a  lot  Buddy  !
 
 
 Prax

 Glad  to  know  Prax.   And  sorry  to  hear  about  your  barb  (actually  wouldn't  be  surprised  that  if  it  had  happened  the  other  way  around).
 
 And  I  picked  up  most  of  my  stuff  from  IAH  forums.   So  continue  to  stay  tuned!
