Canada eh
100 ppm of nitrate is super high, you need to do wc , clean out your filtration, and if you can add pothos or some other plants that would help. Typically I don’t want nitrates to get over 40ppm for more than a few days. This high nitrates could be why the rays are not doing well to begin with, then it lowers their immune systems and leaves them open to other types of health issues.

you will need to get them eating right away.

Whitish poop could probably indicate towards an internal parasite? Or maybe a bacterial infection, but I don’t see any sign of it. My best guess would be internal parasites and high nitrate.

Gpdriftwood Gpdriftwood Matteus Matteus DB junkie DB junkie kno4te kno4te , they could probably help but Finding the cause can be quite difficult due to so many health issues out there. Hope no more of your rays suffer

I have already stated my opinion on what needs to happen as a baseline. Treating sickness means nothing if the original root issue isn’t first addressed.

Wow. That's awful man. I'm very sorry for your losses. That looks bacterial. Don't know for sure. I have suffered a few losses by rushing things myself. U live and u learn. I did anyway. Very sorry for your loss again. Sorry I couldn't be more help.
