    Its a possibility... corydoras can actually swim to the water surface and take gulps of air to store and use (they hold the air in their stomachs and the oxygen dissipates through the thin lining), thats how they can survive in lower oxygen environments.

    If your 2 other rainbow fishes are gasping at the surface, then quickly run an air stone to improve oxygenation in the tank.

    I still do find it abit odd that just 2-3 rainbow fish would encounter oxygen issues in a large volume 4ft tank (if thats really the case, then your tank setup will really need some adjustments to ensure sufficient oxygenation, especially since you plan to add even more fishes in the future), maybe also check your tanks ammonia and nitrite levels again just to make sure its not due to spikes in those parameters.

    Btw, do you have any photos or video of the sump filtration and also the overflow section and the ouflow pipe? Just curious to see how how its setup and the possible tweaks that could be done.

    Re: Where to buy Dwarf Neon Rainbowfish

    Alright it's been a couple of hours but why is my neon dwarf rainbow still at the surface

    Also, I tested my ammonia and it's around 0-0.25ppm

    Re: Where to buy Dwarf Neon Rainbowfish

    Well looks like oxygen wasn't the issue...
    Another one died this morning and the one at the surface is still at the surface. THATS 5 DEAD OF THE 6 I BOUGHT

    Is it cuz of ammonia??? Is 0.25ppm too much for them??
    When I bought them from Arowana avenue, they still look rather lively and active. Why is it that they are only dying and swimming at the surface in my tank...

    Best to still run the air stone just in case. Btw, you can also run the air stone or air strip inside the sump tank too.

    Seems like it could just be weak fishes that couldn't survive the transition, sometimes that happens. I have bought tetras from one LFS which died within a short time and then bought tetras from another LFS which lived on for the next 2+ years (both in the same tank conditions), so it could also be a batch issue.

    As for your ammonia levels, you can do more frequent and larger water changes to help reduce it. Adding more fast growing plants or floating plants will also help to consume it too.

    Do also check if your tap water itself has ammonia content too, because some place may exhibit this effect (especially those buildings with older water pipes and water tanks).

    Re: Where to buy Dwarf Neon Rainbowfish

    Whoa amazing. I bought 5 neon rainbows today from Bishan Aquarium. They may not have the cleanest looking aquarium but their Neon dwarf rainbows were only $1 each!!! Let's hope they don't die this time
