    Hi, i have an aurtus in 150L tank alone with filteration and WC 30% once a week. water P are 0,0,10

    2 days ago he stopped eating. there wasent any change made in the tank and the only other symptoms im aeeing is that he is breathing fast and "puffing" his gills more the usual while breating. I didnt see him flashing or gasping for air.

    What do you think is this? what do you reccomend doing?

    thank you

    Could be something in the water. Are you certain of the parameters?
    Do you use any chemicals/ fertilisers at all? Or maybe something in the room like paint or cleaning product?
    Do a large water change with dechlorinated water for now.

    I agree with the large water change. Can we get a pic?
