So I got this punctato butterfly on 7/26. The bag had a slight leak and a bad smell upon opening. Floated for 15 minutes and drip acclimated for 40 minutes. He was hanging in the corner the whole time he was in the QT tank. My QT tank is a 29 gallon long with a HOB Penguin filter a heater and airstone. The tank has been running for over 6 months and I just finished QTing a fremblii butterfly. Sg is 1.020, ammonia and nitrites are 0. The other inhabitants in QT are a flame angel and a squareback anthia. They both appear fine and are swimming about or hiding in the PVC piping. You can see from the picture that the fish had blood coming from the gills. I had treated with Prazipro the day before. What caused the death and should I do anything to treat the other fish?

Thanks

It also seems that there is some swelling of the belly. Any ideas?

Thanks
