I have two Electric yellows that have been recently purchased in the last mounth that are showing some illness. One of these fish has died and the other one is not doing well. Here are some pics (pics are rather large)

First pic, now passed away.


Second pic, showing dark stripes.


Third pic, shows dark stripes next to another healthy yellow.


I am not sure what is causing the stripes on the Yellows, All water conditions seam ok appart from the Nitrate had a spike, have lowered the nitrate using prime and some stress Zyime

Current water conditions are as below.

PH: 8.0 - 8.2

GH: 180ppm

KH: 120ppm

Amonia: 0

Nitrite: 0

Nitrate: currently at about 20 - 40ppm (was over 80ppm even with water changes etc...)

Thanks in advance
