    I had 6 guppys and 1 Catfish Dwarf suckers in my 350 liter tank, one of my guppys are dead, another Guppy is swimming on its back, but killed it because it was suffering, 3 of them are very fat, and only staying at one spot, do they have parasites?


    I did put some new plants in a week ago, could the plants have had something on them that make them sick?


    The 3 of them there is sick will not eat the peas im giving them, the one there is acting normal is eating it.


    I did a salt bath whit epsom salt yesterday and today they are not improve


    Also I have another guppy in my quarantine tank, it's acting totally normal and I have feedet as much as the others.


    Water:
    Kh : 18
    GH : 20
    Ph 8
    Ammonia : 0
    Nitrit : 0
    Nitrat : 12


    Temperature:

    When you buy them, do you look out for these diseases?
    When I see a guppy with disease living in the same tank as others or a dead fish in the shop tank, I just don’t buy the guppies. They might already have the disease when you buy them.

    Your temperature is too low for the guppy, it might be one of the cause that made them stress and sick. They might be able to handle as low as 22 Degree Celsius but not for a long period of time, remember Guppies are tropical fish.

    After giving it squash, The one guppy fish that was sick, is getting better and try to escape the Net, so I released it, I will keep feeding it squash, and see if it gets all well.
    I will set the temperture up to 25 c
