    UnhappyWhat's this : Red Anal Area

    I have no clue what this is, it happen so sudden. I just defeated fin rot, fungus and ich! Tank wuz absolutely healthy with everyfish spotless! And this suddenly pops out! Two fish death out of absolutely NO WHERE! I am clueless!

    I wuz just feeding them this evening.. they were all lively and eating, and i seriously dunno why it's red around the anal area and it's kinda bulging out! And then the stomach area is quite red!

    Sorry, sister just broke my digital camera in miami, i'm left with an iphone camera for the moment!

    It appears to be hemorrhagic septicemia... I assume viral if its more than one...

    Umm... doesn't look like that? Sorry about the horrible picture!
    It's just the anal area that looks bloated outwards! The stomach isn't as red as the picture shows, but all scales and flesh seem to be fine!
    Just stomach area is pinkish red, and the anal area is bloated out

    I absolutely have no clue what happened! It just died out of no where!

    Sera Staple Diet + Color Enhancer
    Sera Discus Color Enhancer Blue + Red (Mainly this mix with frozen blood worms)
    Hikari Dried Krills
    Hikari Dried Brine Shrimp
    Hikari Dried Plankton
    Frozen Blood Worms (Mainly this)
    Frozen Brine Shrimp
    Frozen Tropical Diet
    Frozen Market Shrimp (not often)
    Frozen Market Fillet (not often)
    Zuccini (not often)

    But I do have to say, lately, I've been feeding frozen blood worms more than everything else, sometimes, just frozen blood worms!

    Would feeding too much frozen bloo worms take an effect?
    Cuz I have the same thing on my mind after doing a bit of research? could it be because I'm not giving it a good mix diet? Because lately I've seriously cut down on mixing everything, usually I can dump 4 blocks of blood worms in and call it a day! (Sorry, been extremely busy at work and having 4 dogs around me)

    probably got bloat..... i think you should stop feeding for a couple days. i think epson salt helps you should read about that.

    Thanks for the advice kookus!

    Too much blood worms ==> Bloat
    Too much staple food ==> Swim bladder problem

    Dang!
    I'll leave them off without food for a few days! And my tank wuz already dosed with half a teaspoon of epsom salt when I did my water change 2 days ago! They're absolutely lively now!

    BUt i guess you just explained it... they were eating like crazy earlier.. i guess it can explain the bloat and just died!

    Thanks for helping out! But it's just the blurry picture that made it look like it! Everyone else is doing great so far, so I'm pretty sure it's bloat.. did some research, and it definitely looks like it.. and with me continuously feeding blood worms.. i'm an idiot sigh...
