Re: ???Aus. "orange"???
Two thing pop immediately to mind: water quality and food quality.
How often are you changing water? I personally do weekly 50-75% changes in
all of my tanks. If you haven't been changing the water regularly you need
to start. Food. Are you feeding live food? Egg production requires a lot
of high-quality food. Probably the easiest live food to get is baby brine
shrimp. They get really expensive for the people with huge setups and
thousands of fish, but for your little arrangement, they are quite
satisfactory I think.
Also, I presume you have already been looking for signs of disease.
Is your temperature in the low to mid 70's? Do you add a bit of kosher salt
to the water?
I hope some of this helps. Let us know.
