HI everybody
recently my tank has gotten a really bad disease
I had 19 small fish (6 neon tetras, 4 penguin tetras, 2 plain mollys, 2 lyretail mollys, 1 marble molly, 1 goldfish, 1 small angelfish and a common pleco) and a golden apple snail
all of my neon tetras started to hide and began to disappear one by one
I only have one left now
I believe that after they died the pleco came along and cleaned them up
next I noticed my lyretail molly start to slow down and one night I found two of my mollys floating around at the top totally mutilated
they were all fuzzy and bloated, their eyes were black and they had black spots on them
this morning I checked my tank again and one of my penguin tetras is gone and another one is floating around, just barely alive
it's tail is ripped up and it's body is a little warped
the tank is 35 gallons with 6 live plants and a bio-filter and I clean the filter cartridges once a week
the ph level is 8.4
please help!!!
thankyou

Welcome to FishLore!!

I'm sorry your having problems with your fish.

If you could fill in your aquarium information properly, it will help the members without having to ask a bunch of questions.
It's found under My Settings on the blue bar at the top left.

The info should not include your e-mail for safety and security reasons.
We'd hate to see you get spammed.

Good luck

Good morning Luke and Welcome to Fish Lore!

I have moved your thread to the Freshwater Fish Disease section of the forum.

Hopefully it will help you to receive more responses.

Best wishes for your fish!

Welcome to FishLore!


I'm so sorry about your fish

It could be that the angelfish has suddenly become aggressive and is killing everything else. Goldfish could easily eat Neons and Penguin Tetras.

What are your water parameters? Ammonia, nitrite, nitrate.

What size tank do you have?

Goldfish are temperate fish and usually shouldn't be kept with tropical fish like the rest of your stock.

thanks for the replies guys
I'm drawing the conclusion that it's the goldfish who is attacking the fish and that the angelfish is helping to kill the wounded fish
I appreciate the help!
