This shows a lot of the melamine-tainted recalled pet foods and the reason why they've been listed again is because they have not accounted for all of the units of the products.  This is why they call the recall "ongoing".  The dog and cat food ones listed are not new recalls; we have some for which this is the first time I've seen the recall listed for other animal feeds.

Hi Menusux,

Thank you for posting this, it alarmed me when I saw it on the FDA site, too.  Oh, not because of the pet food, but because of the fish food.

Folks, our family has begun to lose its community fish.  The fish are all over a year and a half old, have been with each other for this long, have never been sick and new fish have not been added. 

The first fish that died began to show signs of sickness a couple weeks ago and swam in a manner unbecoming of a fish - vertically!  Not only did we find this weird and unheard of, but its subsequent "shivering" and "shaking" was something we had NEVER witnessed in ANY community tank we have had (and we are seasoned fish caretakers). 

Thinking the tank might be showing the beginnings of infection, sea salt was added.  When this did not stop the fish's erratic behavior, an elevated nitrite count was suspected, so a partial water change was effected.  Unfortunately, the new water did not eradicate the strange swimming behavior of the fish, and a few days later, the fish died. 

By the end of the week, another fish became sick with the same erratic swimming pattern.  This time, it happened to be the nicest fish in the tank - pink and navy blue in color - a real beauty!  The nitrite level in the water was again suspected, so a complete water change was effected to see if this would stop the problem.  It didn't, and the fish died a couple days later.

We are keeping a close eye on the remaining fish, whose numbers are dwindling, but cannot account for the strange behavior and demise.  I do know, however, I purchased the last new canister of fish food in September and that is the only food that was fed to these fish.  Was it contaminated?  I certainly do not know, but I would sure like to know what is killing the fish in this tank.

If anyone has any thoughts, I would certainly appreciate input. 

Sincerely,
Donna

I believe there were fish foods recalled that would be used for fish in home tanks.  Leftover pet food ingredient made into fish food I think.  Not positive.  I don't know the brands.  Maybe do a search with the brand of food you use and/or check their website.

Here is one right here.

I was going to post the same thing JustMe just posted.  I have a Beta fish & recently I had to purchase more food......I remember seeing that pet fish food had been recalled & I bet not all of it was pulled.  I watched my fish closely for several days & he's fine, thankfully. 

This is all pretty scary but my guess is it's the food......I'd think I'd try a different kind or brand if I were you.

Just a guess...... Huh

JustMe and JanC,

Thanks so much for your assistance, it is appreciated! 

I checked the sites, and then did a search on the brand of fish flakes used, no recalls, nor any problems reported.  Sargeants, the recalled food, was not the brand of flakes given to the fish.

We are keeping a careful watch on them and the nitrite level, though cannot account for any increase in nitrite.  I am going to pick up a wonderful aquatic enzyme product I have not used in years - Biozyme.  Biozyme will convert the ammonia and nitrite into nitrate and then the nitrate to nitrogen, thereby "creating" a natural environment for the fish.  It will also hasten the production of the healthy organisms for proper decomposition of waste into proteins and other organisms for fish consumption. It always amazes me to see how ecologically sound tanks are - humankind just might want to take a lesson from ocean dwellers!

Beta's are so elegant with their flowing tresses, and make a wonderful display fish.  Imagine having a whole community tank of them, if it were possible -  fins and tails fireworking in unison as each proudly exhibits their beauty!  Oh, the splendor of that dance!  Too bad, only one per tank, but that is the nature of that beast.

Again, thanks you two!

Sincerely,
Donna

Donna- and other fish parents,my neighbor got home & found a helpful new web site about fish problems. I will get the site & book name from her & post it this afternoon. The pond place she went to told her to get a larger airater & consider making the pond bigger. Apparently there are some human foods you can also feed them.

Donna:  I would love to have another Beta (not sure if it's Beta or Betta.....seen it both ways) but the males will kill each other, as you obviously know.  The females are not as pretty & I don't want a tank full of babies.......I thought of a split tank but Benny seems to be happy in his little tank.  I've had him nearly three years. 

I was worried when I heard about all the recalls of fish food.  A friend of mine bought her Beta the same day as I got mine but we got them in different places.  She lost hers several months ago.....I have since wondered about the food but I don't know for sure.  They sure are pretty fish & very easy to care for......not like a regular aquarium. Smiley

It's pretty bad when you can't even be sure the fish food you buy is contaminated.

I don't know if this will help anyone, but here is a link to the recalled foods on the AVMA website.  The fish food is right at the top.

Bad bad year...... Tongue

Thanks everyone for all the information posted! 

It is so  heartwarming to see how everyone pulls together to help one another on this forum - our gov't should take a lesson!

No, the food fed to the fish did not make it to any recall list, but I have two thoughts on that: 

1. Equivalent to some petfoods, the contamination level was minimal, so contamination could have been denied;

or

2. The ingredients and lots were not quality tested, and the contaminated product hit the shelves, as a virtual unknown.

The fish are holding on, but it does not make me any less suspicious of ANY foods within ANY food chain.  Seems the only ones who are safe are the predatory animals, but even some of them are starving because of humankind's insidious wants and desires.  Oh, but that is a topic whose lid boils to be released, and I won't press forward on this right now, I promise!

Sincerely,
Donna

P.S. Sorry for the late response.
