 Dear  experts,
 
 I  have  a  wierd  problem  with  my  tetras..
 
 I  have  a  4  x  2  x  2  planted  tank  running  on  two  2217s.   I  just  have  anubias  and  crypts.  The  tank  is  at  least  6  months  old.
 
 Last  week  I  add  presurized  CO2  with  1  bps  through  a  dymax  reactor.  Water  temp  in  the  tank  is  25+  when  lights  are  off  and  26  when  lights  are  on.
 
 Since  last  week,  I  have  been  losing  one  cardinal  every  day.  I  have  also  lost  a  few  rummynose  tetras.     There  is  one  loss  every  day.   Actually,  I  started  losing  the  tetras  2  days  before  I  started  the  CO2  (so  do  not  know  if  co2  is  the  problem)
 
 Until  now,  I  have  lost  a  dozen  fishes.   The  remaining  tetras  in  ther  batch  seem  to  be  doing  fine,  schooling  and  very  active.  The  other  fishes  in  the  tank  are  angels,  barbs,  and  other  tetras...
 
 now,  I  have  10  cardinals  and  5  rummynose  left...
 
 What  should  I  do  to  save  the  rest.  Please  help  me  ....
 
 I  change  50%  water  once  a  week.
 
 I  also  have  the  air  pump  running.
 
 Looking  forward  for  your  help...
 
 TIA
 
 Uma  Shankar

 Hi  Umashankar,
 
 I  dont  see  any  association  with  the  new  CO2  and  the  deaths.  It  should  be  coincidental.  Because  your  air  pump  running  (  I  presume,  they  run  only  at  night?)  would  not  allow  any  increase  in  the  dissolved  CO2.
 
 As  Vireesh  said,  check  for  some  possible  signs  of  disease.

 Hi  Vireesh  and  Anand,
 
 I  dont  see  any  signs  of  disease...the  tetras  are  schooling  around  very  actively..they  also  have  good  coloration.  They  seem  to  be  healthy.
 
 Can  I  separate  and  cardinals  and  rummynose  to  aother  tank  and  keep  them  under  observation?
 
 The  last  batch  added  to  the  tank  was  a  few  rosy  barbs  (tiny  ones)...did  they  bring  in  any  disease?
 
 Thanks  for  your  time  and  help...
 
 Regards
 
 Uma  Shankar

 Guys,
 
 Today  morning  one  cardinal  was  gone.   I  took  a  closer  look  at  it,  it  did  not  have  any  signs  of  injury,  patches...nothing  abnormal...
 
 What  could  be  the  problem..

 Like  you  mentioned  earlier,  I  think  its  time  you  move  all  the  cardinals  and  rummy  nose  into  a  separate  tank  for  a  while.  Whats  the  temperature  range?

 All  the  water  parameters  including  temperature  are  right.  Some  queries:
 *  What  type  of  water  are  you  using  in  the  aquarium?  It  is  from  water  supply,  please  check  the  contents  of  chlorine.
 *  Also  check  the  sign  of  any  disease  or  infection.
 *  Poisonous  contents  in  food?
 *  If  you  are  offering  any  live  food,  please  check?

 Even  I  have  faced  the  same  problem  and  still  haven't  found  out  the  reason.  It  happened  with  cardinals,  neons,  harlequins  and  emperors.  I  was  wondering  if  it  was  due  to  the  fertilizers  we  add  in  the  planted  aquarium.  In  dry  dosing  I  have  noticed  fish  run  towards  the  crystals  when  you  add  the  powder  form.  I  have  since  been  dissolving  in  water  from  the  aquarium  and  adding  to  tank  water.  However,  though  the  dead  fish  were  free  from  injury  or  any  sign  of  disease,  on  a  few  occasions  the  belly  was  bloated..bloat  disease?  am  not  sure...

 I  have  2  sets  of  cardinals,  one  set  is  at  least  a  year  old  and  the  other  set  is  at  least  4  months  old.
 Mostly,  I  have  been  losing  the  second  set  of  tetras...

 by  logical  reasoning  it  looks  like  your  newest  fish,  the  rosy  barbs,  must  have  carried  an  infection  with  them  that  they  were  immune  to.  am  guessing  its  an  internal  parasite.  
 
 here  is  what  i  do  for  internal  parasites:
 
 What  you  need:
 
 Fish  Food
 Garlic
 A  Mixie  (Grinder)
 
 take  the  amount  of  food  i  would  normally  feed  my  fish.  take  a  single  pod  of  garlic,  clean  and  rinse.  chop  the  garlic  well.  you  need  to  mix  1:10  ratio  Garlic  to  Fish  Food.  Add  1:20  parts  of  water  to  this  and  grind  well  into  a  paste.  let  this  sit  in  the  fridge  for  a  while  and  feed  pieces  of  this  to  your  fish.
