The only things i've added to the tank lately is some melafix yesterday and once a day i put in flora gro 24, 6 drops, whichs helps plants. I'm going away for a week tomorrow, so i really need to find out what it is so i can get some meds in the morning and get my sister to treat while i'm away.

These are my water stats anyway, nothing unusual
Edit: Would it be worth adding salt. It says in the link you sent it would help. And if so, how much should i put in???

Can only add salt if you have no scaless fish.
The problem with septicemia is that the bacteria can enter the fish tank from the fish that is ill, thats why is best to issolate the sick fish and treat.
Its very hard to say if the fish will make it to be honest.

Wilder - do you think its possible it might just be a wound that got infected?
But other fish in tank dying creates suspicion of general problems i guess.
Am i right in thinking bacterial infections can generally kill fish quicker than most parasites and fungus?
Sam - if it were me, with those water stats, i would not do any water changes 24-48hrs before and after adding the meds doses in case your water conditioner interferes with the active ingredients of meds

Will i need to raise the temperature in the tank while i am medicating.
I don't think my water quality is bad as i do my weekly water changes, usually change between 25-50% of the water. Also got a rena xp 2 and a tetratec ex 1200 so good filtration there.
Edit: Won't be doing any water changes. I'm of away, so i'm going to have to leave my sis with a strict regime of what to do. Also, i'll be phoning her every day to make sure.

A bad strain of bacteria can kill fast just like parasites.
Signs of bacterial infections without any symtoms are being pale or darker in colour, being listless and lethagic, and not eating.
Seen green on fish before it not a desease it usually clear up on its own.

Any ideas or suggestions would be great.

If the septicemia was advanced hard to cure even with antibiotics as it's blood poisoning.
A fish with septicemia the bacteria from the fish can enter the tank.
I would preform some daily water changes and keep adding the correct of med back to water removed.

Bless them R.I.P.
Keep doing water changes on the tank and add the med back to the water removed.
