Her tank has been up and running for quite some time now.
She does bi-weekly water changes (sometimes she lacks), and she's currently without access to test kits.
When visually inspecting the fish, their fins are completely extended and looking healthy so we assume it might not be a water quality issue.
Next is fish.
All but a few of her fish had been living in this setup for the entire duration. Many grew to their adult size in the tank, living a healthy life.
She had 3 adult kissing fish, 2 small plecos, adult red tail, adult barb, gouramis, and i think thats about it.
We introduced 3 healthy copper tetras to the tank, and that was most likely the start of the issue. A few days after introduction, we lost one of the tetras, and a few days later, a second leaving a very healthy and active third lone tetra. Everything else seemed fine, so we chalked it up as a loss on some newer fish. It happens.
Few weeks pass and she didnt experience any more issues. She introduced a bolivian ram to the tank, a fish she's been eyeing for some time now. Very shy and timid, never really came out from his area to be seen.
It was a short period after of which she noticed one of her plecos had started to form a white slime coating. 2 days later and the pleco had passed away.
Shortly after, she started losing her adult kissing fish, her copper tetra, and then her newly added ram.
It seems as though she gained some kind of parasite or sickness from some of her newly introduced fish. We're hoping you guys could give her some kind of clue or lead on what to do here. There's so many different types of meds for tanks, that we're not wanting to experiment without some kind of direction to follow.
