    Last night b4 lights out, i noticed something wrong wit my yellow tail, his lips where white, then abt 10min later he was pale, almost silver, and was on the gravel, So i picked him up tried to help him swim but he couldn't. Few min later he died:'(. Then i noticed my royaly dottyback had some white bubble like spots on his fins and body. This mornin i looked at him and there's nothin.

    Could this possibly be ick in my tank floatin around?

    No, doesn't sound like Ich.

    What are your Ammonia levels ?

    How do you introduce the fish into the tank ?

    All my readings are as they should be.

    Wen i got the Fish they were in a lil neglected state.
    Let the guys float and dripped my tank water wit thin air pump tubin for abt 45min drop half the water then drip 4 15min wit lil more water flowin in the bag.

    Do you have any pics Kavir?

    And it seems that your acclimatization was OK. I hope you did NOT let the water from the bag go into your tank?

    Definately not ich. From the sounds of it, it looks like you bought a sick fish. Try and post a pic so we can look at other signs of what could have gone wrong
