    Neon Tetra Disease
    [HR][/HR]I just picked up 14 Neon Tetras 24 hours ago.

    This morning I woke up to 3 neon tetras stuck to my filter and 1 upside down.
    My LFS had a lot of dead fish yesterday...I shouldn't have bought them.
    Even the bag of water smelled unusually fishy.

    They say it's a PH problem because my PH is tap 7.6. The same guy that says all his fish are from florida and the PH is high so just keep it stable. I could tell he's lying, but enough of my rant.

    Below are the details of my tank

    20 gallon tall
    0, 0, 7.6ph (parameters)
    temperature in the 80's

    2 electric blue rams
    few brichardi fry

    Why do I suspect NTD? - third of the fish's body turned white
    some of the fish had fin rot on caudal fin

    The rest of the neons are in the freezer currently.

    I am just worried about the Rams and the brichardi fry.
    I'm pretty sure I saw one of my rams pick at one of the infected...

    I know Angelfish and other tetras are susceptible to this disease.
    Would my rams and brichardi fry be ok????


    Also i have a 45 gallon community tank... Do i need to get new equipment such as net, bucket, syphon to keep the disease from spreading to my other tank?

    Hmmm.... Did you notice any lumps on dead fish, or odd spine curvature? If not, you likely have something completely different. Sorry about your fishies. I believe rams are not immune, but I think you are dealing with something else.
