 My Information
Comments:

I cant believe that all three died on me within the space of 2 days. I couldnt work out what was the problem as one day one fish would go and then the next. All my other fish are fine, I was told that these fish are very susceptible to water conditions. I regularly changed the water and monitored it.

Seem to keep themselves to themselves, just swim around picking at plants and bits of food.

I would say that these fish come from Jamaica as they are pretty chilled out and laid back :-)

Reasons for getting rid: Didnt get rid of these, they just passed away. All within 3 days of each other. I still dont know the reasons but I think it could have been Dropsy.
