"I have had bala's for about 3 years now and the old timer, is about 7" now. For the last 2 weeks I have been having trouble keeping the others alive. I have replaced 2 and now another one is doing the back stroke. But it isn't the oldest or the newst one. They are fine one minute and the next they are belly up and struggling around the tank upside down. The old man scurries away from them and within 12 hours they are dead. No sores, or clamp fin,or ick, they just go. I have tried adding fresh water and am using melafix as well as water treatment. They are in a 50 gallon tank with Fluval tank filter and a water heater set at 76. I have a plecastema and a needle fish in the same tank, so there isn't any fighting. Anyone else having this problem? "
