Fish Going Belly Up

7 Replies

Last night we lost 2 of our fish and on Saturday we lost 2 as well. Can any other acquarium owner suggest why this is happening? My boyfriend says it is because I have been feeding them too much...

Feeding too much can definetly kill them, could anything have gotten into the way for example fly spray as this will kill them also.

Have you painted the room (or near it) - we made this mistake a few years ago and lost all our fish within 3 days. Good luck!

Have you added any new species recently? I know of one species which produces a bacteria which kills other fish.

Can't think of the name off hand but it is a very flat variety, it begins with an 's'. Will try to find the name for you.

I have had someone sell me plants for my fishtank before- all my fish started dieing a couple of days after putting it in. Turned out the plant was poisonous to fish!

Were they proper acquarium plants?
