The normally healthy fish in my fish tank stopped eating one day and died. It was a strange occurrence, and I couldn’t figure out what was wrong. I thought maybe something had been wrong with the food I fed it, and checked for a recall. There wasn’t a recall, and there hadn’t been any reported cases of fish suddenly dying from the food. My next guess was that something is probably wrong with the water. I bought a kit from the Internet and tested the salt and chlorine levels. The test showed that the water was fine, which left me even more confused.
I could have gotten the fish tested, but that would have cost me a lot of money, and wouldn’t have brought the fish back anyway. At this point, I was running out of ideas. There was only one other thing that I could think of that would have killed my fish, and that was some kind of infection by bacteria or fungi. I looked on every part of the fish tank, from the glass to the gravel. On the gravel, I saw some strange coloring that wasn’t normal. Fungi had been growing under the gravel and slowly affecting the fish until it couldn’t take it anymore.
I’m going to go to the pet store next week and get a new fish. I’ve been thinking about getting an angel fish or maybe a betta fish. I’ll be sure to get some kind of anti fungal treatment for the fish tank in order to avoid another disaster like what happened to the last fish. I like fish because they’re easy pets to maintain, but when it comes to figuring out what is wrong with a fish, you might have a hard time. Other pets can be simply taken to a vet.
