Welcome to the addiction.



the shark might have gotten stuck, they do burrow or atleast rummage thru, maybe chased food in there? what other fish are in there?

rtbs get good sized and get a temper usually as they get older.

ammonia the fish would be panting at the surface for air.


give us a run-down of the tank,equipment as in filters,heaters ect and water parameters, all of em not just Ph and ammonia. It will help us help you much better.

he was stuck beneath the air stone but could that have killed it. i have a aqua clear 50 filter and a 200 watt neptune heater. all of my fish that i have in their are listed in my signature. i have heard they are aggressive but it seems to get along with all of them pretty well. the most aggressive are the skirted tetras. the shop guy told me that if the amonia is good then everything else should be good.
