"I bought two silver tipped cat-sharks a few days ago. They were acting quite erratically, swimming side to side in the tank bouncing off of the glass. When I left my house this afternoon both fish were doing fine and ate with my other fish as usual. When I returned home a few hours later, they were both upside down at the top of the tank. One of them was clearly dead, and the other was laying there twitching quite a bit (kind of looked like a seizure). So I removed them from the tank and looked closer. The one fish looked pretty much normal aside from looking like it had a loose piece of skin here and there, and a small hole on the top of its head, nothing that looked really violent like an attack from another fish. Then I looked at the second one, it had a beige-ish looking semi see through substance on it, also there was a hole on the top of its head between its eyes like the other fish but it was ragged looking with the weird substance on it. Their nostrils looked a little beaten up from hitting the glass also. I tested the PH, Nitrite, Nitrate, and Ammonia levels: all were normal except the PH and Ammonia. I checked the PH this morning and it was 7.5 ppm, then it jumped to 8 ppm. and the ammonia was at 4 ppm. I have no idea what happened here and I know its a lot of information, but any help would be greatly appreciated."
