 HELP  HELP  HELP   Shocked   Shocked   Shocked  
 
 I  have  6  pairs  of  Cardinals  in  a  community  tank,  with  various  other  tetras  n  loaches,  one  big  happy  family.  However,  more  than  3  months  back  one  of  the  Cardinal  was  with  a  black  color  on  the  top  of  its  body  and  there  were  white  boils.
 
 I  quickly  removed  it  and  put  it  in  a  different  tank  and  put  Redoil  for  white  spots  and  sea  salt,  it  took  a  lot  of  time  for  the  white  spots  to  go,  however,  the  black  long  mark  remained  on  the  body.  After  a  while,  I  put  the  Cardinal  back  in  the  tank  and  the  next  day  it  was  lying  twisted  to  one  of  the  side  and  lost  the  blue  color  too.  I  removed  it  and  put  in  the  other  empty  tank  and  have  kept  it  medicated,  but  no  use.  It  doesnt  move  nor  eats.  I  dont  know  what  to  do.  Sad  
 
 My  other  problem  is  that  my  other  Cardinals  have  also  started  to  show  small  white  spots  and  one  of  them  have  developed  a  black  mark  too.  I'm  worried  about  these  ones  and  dont  want  them  to  suffer  the  same.  Crying or Very sad  
 
 Please  help  and  advice  me  on  what  can  really  help  and  save  my  Cardinals.....  
 
 Thanks  n  regards
 Jiten

 also  mention  the  temperature  of  your  tank.  in  order  to  treat  for  white  spots,  move  your  fishes  to  a  separate  tank  and  keep  temperature  at  29/30

 Sorry  mate  your  report  doesn't  sound  too  good.
 
 The  symptoms  of  your  tetras  losing  body  colour  and  the  body  getting  twisted,  dangerously  sounds  like  the  dreaded  Neon  Tetra  Disease!
 The  white  spots  sound  like  the  cysts  that  occur  in  this  disease.  The  fish's  body  is  twisted  because  the  spine  gets  twisted  in  the  late  stages  of  NTD.  The  black  marks  may  be  some  sort  of  a  secondary  bacterial  infection  which  can  also  occur  in  NTD.  
 
 Unfortunately  there  is  no  known  cure  for  this  disease.  Sad  
 
 Remove  your  infected  fishes  to  another  tank  ASAP.  Most  websites  recommend  euthanizing  them.  Confirm  that  the  remaining  fish  don't  have  any  signs  of  infection.  
 Find  out  if  there  is  a  dead  fish  lying  in  your  tank  somewhere  as  fish  often  get  infected  by  eating  the  flesh  of  infected  dead  fish.  Don't  feed  your  fish  live  food  as  this  may  also  carry  the  parasites.  
 Do  repeated  water  changes  to  reduce  the  parasite  load  and  ensure  pristine  water  quality.
 
 Do  post  some  pics  if  possible.  It'll  help  in  the  diagnosis.
 You  can  read  more  about  the  neon  tetra  Disease  at:
 http://freshaquarium.about.com/cs/disease/p/neondisease.htm
 http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/disease/neon.php
 http://www.fishdeals.com/fish_diseases/neon_tetra_disease/
 
 Hope  you  can  save  your  other  fishes.  Cheer Up  
 
 regards

 he  mentioned  cardinal  tetras  but  the  symptoms  are  like  NTD.  did  someone  sell  you  neons  in  place  of  cardinals.
 
 post  the  pic  of  the  fish  to  get  a  more  correct  advice  as  if  it  is  neon  tetra  and  not  cardinal  tetra  then  nothing  can  be  done.  they  are  doomed.

 Yes  I  agree  that  may  be  possible.  Also,  I  had  read  somewhere  that  other  members  of  the  tetra  family,  in  fact  even  some  Cichlids  like  Angels  can  contract  this  disease.  
 For  Jiten's  sake,  I  hope  I'm  wrong.
    
 Jiten,  my  friend...  My  heart  goes  out  to  you  and  your  fish.  But  bad  things  do  happen  sometimes.  Dont  let  this  get  you  down...
 Regards
