    Hello Passion. Sorry to hear about your fish. I'm sorry but I'm not familiar with the 1001 bacteria that you speak of. Are your readings for ammonia, nitrite, nitrate and pH where they should be? Keeping up with your regular water changes?

    On a more happy note: Happy Birthday!:;balloons
    I'm sure you'll get some more responses as people over here start waking up. Best of luck! I hope you find the missing fish.

    Sometimes if you ammonia and/or nitrites are high for a while the fish won't show symtoms/die until after you think you have the water parameters under control. It seems that sometimes it takes a little while for the damage done by poor water conditions to show.

    Hang in there and good luck. Oh yeah, and Happy 21st!
