It sounds like your aquarium has a water quality problem 

How to be sure

Your fish are unwell or may have even died suddenly with no obvious reason. Invisible nasties in the water are often the cause and can only be discovered by testing your water.

Step 1 – Treat your aquarium

  • You need to test your aquarium water for excessive ammonia, nitrite, nitrate or pH imbalance.
  • Treat any unhealthy results to rebalance your water quality and give your fish the best chance of getting fighting fit again.
  • Check all your equipment is working properly – especially filters and heaters (check your aquarium temperature with your thermometer).  Carry out any maintenance needed, or replace faulty or broken parts.

Step 2 – Support your fish

  • Use Aquilibrium First Aid Salt – to help your fish feel well, while your water quality improves.
  • If your fish are gasping at the surface, increase oxygen levels by adding an air pump.
