When a fish is weak, the other fish pick up on it and go after him. Can you isolate him in a breeing net, or do you have a hospital tank? What he probably needs after recovering from ich, is some extremely clean water, and rest without worrying about being attacked.

Hi Gunnie

Thank you for your help, but unfortunately when i got up this morning the poorly head and tail light tetra had died...

I don't have a hospital tank ive got my old goldfish tank which is plastic would it be possible to set that up as a hospital tank? not sure what i need for an isolation tank, but i am going to get a breeding net just in case it happens again.

I have also noticed tonight that one of my h&t lights is being the bully in the tank and picking on the other h&t lights do u think it would be a good idea to isolate the bully till the other h&t lights get a bit bigger i bought them all at the same time but the four i have left are different. 2 are long and slim and 2 are more rounded with a shorter tail not sure why?

any help will be much appreciated thanks sue
