Hi
My fish have suddenly started dying. Healthy in the morning, dying by night. They seem to have weird scales, as if they are peeling off. I have attached a few photos. Is this dropsy?? I've never in years had any issues like this.

Kind of hard to tell from the pictures. Are the scales sticking out kind of like a pine cone? If so, it is bloat (dropsy).

Scales are not sticking out. It's almost as if they are peeling off, sort of loose. Giving a shiny silvery appearance. On closer look I also noticed some fungal on his eyes and around his gills. Could fungal take down a fish in 12 hours??

Can you post your water test results plus any additives you may be using in the tank?

What other species are in this tank? Just curious if there may be some aggressive behavior going on.

Any new fish added in the last couple weeks?
