Hey everyone,

So my male ram died mysteriously after heavy breathing and lethargy about 2 or 3 weeks ago. Now the female is having the same problem. She's sitting in the plastic plants. She responds to noise and stimuli, but also hasn't eaten last night. Thanks for any help!

Just about 80 degrees. She's been fine for about 3 months with the tank at this temp. I'm thinking our local ph may be too high (it's about 8 put the tap) so I have been thinking giving them some garlic every now and then.

Just finished the change, she's a tad more active. I'm going to be doing my angelfish juvie tank now, so I'll check back in half an hour. I did notice her gills seem a little red.

She's resting on the gravel now. I'm honestly clueless as to wait it could be, and if I loose another fish I'm just gonna give up and sell the stock.

Buying general cure and doseing the whole tank, I've come to the conclusion its an internal parasite of some sort. Hopefully she makes it throught he night, and just in case she needs more aggressive treatment I'm cycling a 5 gallon that i will be using soon with a already established sponge filter.
