I had 2 keyholes up until 4 weeks ago when one popped her clogs. She had been undereating for a couple of days, then started to baloon up (which I thought was just eggs initially) over the period of a week - then she developed raised scales and balooned as seen with bloat.
My male is still eating but has started to deveop some raised scales and I am understandably nervous. He is the real character of the tank - Losing his mate was bad enough - I really dont want to lose him as well.
Water is fine - only difference being in the last 2 months I have been using RO water to bring the hardness down to 10 from 18. I achieved this in stages so there shouldnt have been any shock caused. They responded well to the change actually - they perked up and swam in the open more.
I treated the tank with Octozin when the female was quaranteened as it appeared similar to bloat and the two fishies do sport a few dimples in their heads. I wanted to catch anything in the main tank nice and early.
Do you recommend I treat the tank with something like myxazin to give any nasty bacteria the heave-ho. Or should I wait and hope.
