Sick apisto! Help!
#1
Guys - my cockatoo apisto - Jacob is lying on the bottom and gasping. He can try and swim upright but he defaults to lying gasping on the bottom soon after.

Ammonia is bright yellow.

Any ideas? I lost his wife about two weeks ago and his other wife a couple of days ago!

All other fish are fine....?!

I've had that with 2 of my sparklies and they, unfortunately, didn't make it out Sad is there good aeration? Nitrite? How old is he?

He’s pretty young - only had him a couple of months. Yeah - everything’s fine.

Oh no Ruth, thats not good. So very sorry to hear.

And all 3 the same species. Did you get them all at once? If so perhaps a bad batch. Might be worth an ask at the LFS you got them from?

Yeah - was wondering the same. He was really suffering Peter - he was just floating about (took him out of the tank) didn’t know what way was up, gasping. I couldn’t bear seeing him so obviously miserable, so I did what I think was the kindest thing for him.
