NANFA-- Fish death
Wed, 24 Jul 2002 17:34:29 EDT

One of my favorite fish died today for no apparent reason. A white sucker
that I have had for over a year was belly up on the bottom this morning. He
was barely breathing and by this afternoon he was dead. He didn't show any
signs of stress and had been eating well up to the time of his death. I know
most people don't worry to much about dead fish but I do, especially when I
can't explain it at all. The water temp was about 78 degrees and the water
had a salinity of 1.002. I checked all my freshwater tanks and found they all
were around 1.002 except for one I had just set up. any one want to venture a
guess as to why he died? A hog sucker in the same tank is doing well.
