After losing all my Trophs to Bloat, I've decided to go back to Malawis/Mbunas.
I treated my tank with Metro trying to save them but apparently it was too late so it didn't help.

After losing them all, I stripped my tank bare (no substrate or rocks) and did a 90% water change. I will continue with large water changes over the next 2-4 weeks as we're in lockdown anyway so I won't add any fish.

But I have the following questions:

  • 1. How contagious is Bloat? Does it continue to survive in the tank even though the tank has only water?
    2. Do I also have to clean out my two external canister filters?
