I have a 46 gallon bowfront that is well established and heavily planted in dirt with gravel cap. I have/had 10 neon tetras, 4 black neons, 5 otocats, 2 albino Cory's, 2 angels, 5 shrimp and lots of snails.
My problem is that I am having a bacterial bloom that seems to be pretty bad and I seem to have lost 3 neons, and 1 black neon. I found the skeleton of one of the fish but not any of the others due to the large amount of plants.
I'm also not sure what went wrong first although I'm pretty sure the bloom was before the fish loss.
I tested the water and everything is good, nitrites, nitrates, ammonia, and ph are all where they need to be and the remaining fish seem to be ok.
Being that I'm not able to remove the remaining dead fish because I can't locate them, is that going to cause more problems or will the shrimp (I'm assuming the shrimp or snails are what left the skeleton of the one I found) take care of the clean up?
