Fungal infections are usually signs of other diseases or bad water quality.

Apparently the fungus didn't appear until after he had died because my dad said he didn't notice anything and it was pretty obvious when I found him :/ one of my skirt tetras recently had fungus on it also but it was just one little spot above his eye that I was able to take care of with Pimafix. Zeus, however was almost completely covered by the time I got home.

the fungus came after the fish had died.....so was not the result of bad water quality or other diseases...

Correction: Fungus is a sign of an unhealthy fish. Kirries fish was extremely unhealthy after it died.

I am so sorry you lost Zeus. Yeah I think that it would be good to just concentrate on the one tank for now.

I had him for 2 years and he was healthy and now that I have another tank in my room, he dies. I honestly did not know that he had a fungal infection because, like I said, I didn't see anything and I was even watching all of my fish closely because of my one tetra that did have a fungal infection. It must have gotten bad really quickly in that one week that I wasn't the one checking on him everyday. I have definitely learned from this, but there are still a lot of things I have to learn obviously. Now I'm just waiting for the things I need to test my water. I want to make sure the other tank isn't just a week behind Zeus. This is really hard with the only money I have coming from babysitting :/

Yep. Losing fish is hard especially when you are a kid. You don't need to go defensive kirrie. It wasn't your fault. I simply said that the fish was very unhealthy after it died.

I didn't hear a defensive tone in Kirries reply. I heard an intelligent person trying to analyze a tough situation, in order to learn from it...losing a fishy friend is hard, and that is so if you are a kid or half a century old.

Ya I know People on here are really nice, which is why I like being able to ask questions here rather than look all over the internet. I appreciate the advice that I get from everyone. It's also nice being able to talk to people that understand how much I enjoy fish. Most of my friends think it's kind of strange that I enjoy taking care of fish and I can't really talk about it with them because they don't have fish themselves. I'm glad I found this site.

I like this site for the same reasons. It seems like a person is either a big aquarium enthusiast, or they just don't get it. People who can easily empathize with a cute, furry little mammal are often suprised when they meet someone who is passionate about fish! There are plenty of people on this site who are a bit passionate about fish, myself included!

I have all sorts of furry animals as well as my fish. I have 8 guinea hens, 2 rabbits, 2 dogs, and 2 cats. (Not all in one house of course) And ever since someone decided they didnt want their goldfish at the fair, Ive become more and more obsessed with them. The Aquarium club at school might have helped too. My physics teacher has set up a ton of aquariums throughout the school and wherever people ask him to. I believe there is about 5 different 300+ gallon tanks throughout the school. They're all saltwater tanks though. And we are currently trying to breed clownfish and I think PJ Cardinals (not sure if thats the right name). We are also setting up one really big tank, I think it's 600 gallons or bigger. Not sure what we are putting in it though. I haven't been to the meetings in a while because of homework :/

What a great teacher! I have a few fuzzy faces in my home, too. Currently down to just 2 pups and a bird, but have had various others, incl. cat, guinea pig, button quail, squirrels, even had an otter in my home when I worked at a wildlife rehabilitation sanctuary! I have always had a connection to critters!

I once had a squirrel. I was only 7 or 8 though. I found two baby squirrels outside and we gave one to the neighbors and we raised the other. I named him Squeakers (my creativity strikes again). We kept him in a big fish tank and would let him out when we were watching him. Kept him until he started climbing up the curtains and shredding them. Even after we let him go he would come back and sit on my paps arm and eat from his hand. I've always been and animal lover and Im really glad I live out in the country where I get to experience all kinds of wildlife
