    Was my guppy fish suffering from disease?

    Unknown Red Blotch

    I noticed yesterday a bright blood red blotch directly on top of my female Tiger Teddies head. I don’t know what this can be. Any ideas? I have a few ideas but want to be sure before I start medicating. Don’t want to loose this pair as they are more rare to find.

    3 Guppies dead, is this a disease?

    So two nights ago I realized that one of my guppies had died. I didn’t see anything wrong and I figured that it was just of old age or something since he was an old fish. Then another one died and another! I have recently added two new lamp-eye tetras (in addition to my one already in the tank)...
