as you all may know, i had a pregnant rosie barb. i put her in another tank with the male and waited for her to lay her eggs. she didn't lay any eggs and looked to be very stressed, being away from the other fish. she also looked quite pale. in the end i decided to transfer them both back into the main tank with all the others and see how she got on from there. i checked on her around three hours later to see how she was doing and to see if she was gaining any colour back. unfortunately i found her dead. so i didn't get any fry from her and lost her also :'( :'( :'( :'(

Hi Nicola, I am also sorry about your fish. If two of your tanks, between which you have transferred the fish, have quite different pH (or even slightly different pH), and if you have not acclimatized the fish to the new tank, this might have been the cause of death. The fish might have been overwhelmed by the change of environment (and most notably, the pH) to such a degree that its body couldn't handle it and -as a result - it died. Did you acclimatize the fish to the tank to which you transferred it?

yes i did. i tansfered the water they were already in into the other tank so that the water wasn't different. i made sure the temperature was also correct before putting her in to make sure it was right. i think she may have been showing signs of distress before doing this. so i don't really know what the problem was.
