Default WC Kasanga Group

Also try covering the aquarium with a sheet (eg. old bed linen) for 24 hours. If you are treating them with Metro, you may wish to do 30-50% water changes daily.

I too brought in a group of WC Kasanga RRs a week ago and kept them in total darkness for 48 hours and they were fine. They came all the way from Florida to Toronto Canada. Good Luck!

Did the seller send you some food that the Trophs were eating?

gehandylan- thanks aren't the rr's great? I will try the blanket over the tank. They got freaked out when I was putting it over the tank the first time.

I picked these up locally (about a two hour drive). The seller was feeding them ken's tropheus lovers flake which is what I have at the house also.

I stopped metro after the tenth day. Im gonna dose Kanaplex one more round for the fish that arent eating. Its seems like a few have perked up since yesterday. Also bringing the temp back down from 80-81 to around 77.

Should I continue Epsom salt? I haven't added aquarium salt either but have heard that this helps with stress.

I'd keep the temp where you have it. In my experience both trophs and petros have done better in the low 80's. I'd also keep adding the epsom salt. Have you tested your water hardness?

Tested the water hardness with test kit originally and test strips daily for convenience. I have hard water. Gh is above 200 ppm. My kh seems a little low though at around 40-50 ppm. Ph of 8.0 or slightly above. All readings are consistent. Ammonia, chlorine, and Nitrite all at zero. Nitrates are about 10 ppm.

*update*

Well, unfortunately I lost one last week that had the worst symptoms(female).

I found it sucked up against the intake barely holding on.Took some pictures I can post if needed. It was not bloated or emaciated looking from what I can tell. It's fins were beat up pretty bad but I think this was done while it was struggling.

I still have 3 for sure, maybe four that are not eating, wobbling, shimmying, clamped fin etc. Not sure what else to try, but I image I will see them pass in the coming weeks also.

The other 25 or so fish are doing great and attacking food.

The three hovering with their heads tilted down slightly are the sick/stressed/unadjusted ones.

Took with lights on so you can see em without the glare.

I guess at this point all you can do is wait and see. With 25 others healthy, it still sucks to lose a few. Great looking fish and tank though!
