I recently had a male S. zonatus pass away. He was in a tank with another male and a female of the same species, as well as a group of L. goodei. The two males would occasionally have aggresive accounters but never anything serious and would always end immediately. Water conditions have been stable with no changes. Food is mostly frozen brine shrimp. Again no changes. The other day I looked in and he was dead with no torn fins or any indication of why he passed away. The day before he was perfectly health, displaying to the female and acting completely normal. I was going to just consider this an unfortunate mysterious death and leave it at that but then thought someone on this list may have had a similar experience. I'm mostly concerned that it may be a sign of trouble to come. The remaining fish are acting completely healthy, showing no signs of trouble and still breeding. Any advise would be appreciated.
On a different subject, I'm emailing this from work using the most recent version of Outlook. When I send messages to the list they are coming in a format that the list doesn't like and I quess many people cann't read on their computers. I have the option of going into Tools/Options/mail format and changing the settings to either HTML, Microsoft Outlook Rich Text, Plain Text, and Microsoft Word. Not being a computer wiz I don't know which of these I should change to or if any will make a difference. My IT department isn't any help and wouldn't look to kindly on this non business related use of email so I'm on my own. Any advise on this from anyone? Thanks for the help.
