"Hi, it’s me again, back to the shubunkin scenario of appearing to be sleeping lots lately. On my last discussion I fail to mention about the minnows. I had about a 15 white clouds and 12 rosy red minnows for a while and removed the remaining 6 two weeks later because the shubunkin was eating them. A few days later the two oldest shubunkins seem to be sleeping a lot lately and they’re not eating all their food. Occasionally they would sleep with their heads in the back corner not moving. They appeared to be ill and I did several water changes to possibly help to the situation. One of the water changes was 80% but I made certain the water temperature was the same and kept the filters unchanged to maintain the bacterial. Sadly to say but my 7' shunbunkin died yesterday along with 1 comet and 3 cories. The remaining one 6' shubunkin, 2 at 3' and 4 cory cats were transferred to a 20-gallon quarantine tank and will be staying there until I know they get better. What can I put in the 20-gal. to help recover their illness? I’ll be cleaning the 80-gal. tank and all its components before reactivating. Is it possible one or two of the minnows were deceased when the 7 incher ate it? Is it possible one of the other fish were ill and infested others? Is it possible the cories became ill and infected others? Go ahead give heck, I can take it and if ya don’t have an answer that’s ok too."
