  1. Stunted silver sharks

    Try some cooked pumpkin . they are omnivorous , so they most likely eat insects , do they feed from the top at all if so some good quality flake might work .
  2. Stunted silver sharks

    these fish are ammonia sensitive , can get injuries to digestive track if fed bloodworms , and sensitive to low oxygen slow flowing water . from what you have said , none of these appears to be the issue . have any of the fish in the tank had sores on them ?
  3. Stunted silver sharks

    next question , are they eating the food , please watch carefully to make sure . that red rainbow has me worried because it is across different species and one that would normally get very fat on what is being fed . and apologies to jase it is not a flagtail but nor is it a barb .

    Are you sure - you don't seem to know what it is . Semaprochilodus insignis (Flagtail Prochilodus) look at the shape of the scales , the position of the pectoral fins - under the gill covers , not behind , the shape of the head . just the pectorals indicate that it is not a barb .

    Top right corner second photo , what is it then

    This is not looking good , the flagtail looks to be "pinched in " around the head as well . there is not enough detail in the pictures to tell further , but it looks like a pathogen , Most likely bacterial , but possibly viral . Both the Flagtail and the Sharks are neutral to slightly acid water fish , so extremes of hard alkaline water would weaken them , but I would think that that would kill you neons so I do not think that is the issue .
