    Not sure if it's considered a crash but I went from 20-30+ guppies to 3. My colony has been destroyed. Anyways, here's an update on the symptoms.

    Symptoms of the most recent deaths have changed a little from the start. They start with a white patch on top of their head. Then their pectoral fins narrow. Their mouths are stuck open and "wiggle" in place.

    When i find them dead, the white patch turns into a little fluffy patch of fuzz, happened on 6, and their mouths are wide open.

    I have no information. But I'm so sorry - that is a substantial loss. :(

    It seems to only affect juveniles and adults as my fry that are in the same tank are still alive. I've only seen 2 or 3 dead

    What are your water parameters? I think that this could be columnaris or some sort of fungus. Do you have any pictures? Keep in mind that I am not an expert in diseases, so you may want to wait until someone more knowledgeable comes along.

    On another thread, columnaris and tetrahymena were assumed. I've treated for the diseases as best i could over the last few weeks.

    Here's one that just died. She doesn't have a fungus but has some red in her, maybe it's just organs. b9cf3e16e6d100d9e4d00562a61bc105.jpg here are my last three. I predict the top one will be gone tomorrow(she has her mouth ajar and a sunken belly). The other two look perfect, the male is large and the female is fat 5d61b78a7e053be422b7f07c0376a05c.jpg
    I've never been able to count all of my guppies until now :/

    Sorry to hear that:(
    You should probably separate the remaining healthy guppies if you can.
