Dun worry... wuzn't anything expensive!

A German Balloon Blue Ram
and a Balloon Irian Rainbowfish
humm... or could it be a nitrate spike that killed them? I really dunno, they were half eaten... cuz if it is the nitrate spike that killed them, i'm thinking any type of fish that isn't natural has a way weaker immune system!

Sorry to hear about your fish....

WC at un-planned times usually is a pain that we have to endure. I just had to change 50% of the water in my 155Gallon tank too... (luckily I didn't loose any fish)

Yup... i am about to fall dead asleep!
Now the 55gallon tank has had 5 water changes straight daily LOL!
I was changing the 60 gallon with the spike... and there i wuz... "humm.. might as well since they're side by side"! :rolleyes: Now i'm extremely tired!

Wow. No spike is a good spike. Hybrids do have a weaker immune system and more susceptible to disease etc.

Any plans for flagtails as replacements?
LOL!! Jobber, i hate you... you always read my mind!
I might move one of the flagtail from the 55gallon over to the 60gallon... how i miss them ruling the whole community tank! But then again.. the community tank is quite perfect at the moment! But i seriously do think they're much happier in a community tank rather than a species tank!
