Hi,

I looked in my tank yesterday and one of my 3 Barra was dead.
The other two look sluggish and unwell. They seem to have some white spots/patches on them.

I tested the water and the ammonia was higher than normal at 0.50 ppm. Everything else was normal.

The white is on the top fin, a bit on the head and side near the gills.

I am reading around and think salt may be the best course of action???

yes - get some salt in there. If none in there at present you will need quite a bit.
And air bubbles.

You will need to save their life.
What is your water temperature?
Sometimes I think they do not like the cold.
In Broome it should be okay though.
Check nitrates?

Yeah, they are Barra, no joke.

Nitrates? right..

Quite frankly Kiara, or whoever you want to call yourself, you are a troll... Two forum accounts, having conversations with yourself, abusing people for not helping? If you can't be useful don't bother posting. I probably should have deleted both accounts a long time ago.
