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.
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.
