My guppies died with no signs of disease, even with proper acclimate.
many reasons as your info too lacking for us to come to a conclusion.
new tank?
fish already sick at the lfs?
just too many to list here.

Oh dear I feel for you...what are you feeding the remaining one? Maybe it eats but not when you are around.

i will leave the mp in the water for 30min, let them explore the food and reduce the chance of polluting the water.

sian within 1 5month killed 3 arowana

this is not true anymore mainly due to too much inbreeding.

i do agree tt buying fishes at lfs is a gamble. no matter how clear is the water, we are not aware of its health from externally.
they have fast turn over of stocks, dead are fished out etc, so for consumer after buying them home, dying after a week or so, is hard to pinpoint.

i see some water change at lfs, the water definately comes from tap direct. doubt they have special tank to dechlorinated water, but i observed some does put pretty much amt of salt into them after water change

i dun think the water change is purely from tap water, those fishes will die in the first 24 hrs.

not many LFS do quarantine when they bring in new fish into their stores.
some of those that do that are farms that do sell to the public.

i would like to seek advice here.
i have around 10 koi guppy in my tank, mostly male.
yesterday bought 3 pairs of new guppies and put inside.
today 4 of them was attacked, 2 are critical and 2 fins heavily damaged.
what should i do? did i put too many at once? the residents are very aggressive towards the new ones.

I noticed they add anti chlorine only after the tap water is already almost to the desired level. By then, the chlorine would have burn the gills, particular to those smaller and less tolerant fishes.

I bought before. I think it is either Malaya shrimps or rojak shrimps (mostly mixed cull quality neo cardini shrimps).
Ya low grade cull cherry or mixed neos. Their offsprings will revert wild.
