    Ok so I lost the bottom feeder last nite thought the shark did it they did not get along. This afternoon a silver tip is dead with what appears to be glitter on him and bumps. The other silver tips now have this glitter and bumps, along with the rainbow shark. The angels and dwarf gouramis appear fine i dont see anything on them.

    What is this and how do i fix it? I hate to have favorites but I dont want my angels to get sick and die.

    Does the glitter look like salt? Did you take a photo you could post?

    Here's how to Attach Pictures to my post

    I'm sorry about your fish. It kind of sounds like velvet to me also.
    I don't know enough about it to advise. I've heard that a black out is advised. You might want to search the forum. I know theres a thread or two about it.
    Here's some info:
    Freshwater Velvet
    Fish Velvet

    Good luck, I hope things improve.
