Guppy Swimming At Very Top Of Tank
Posted 04 January 2009 - 10:45 AM
Im loathe to put an air stone in their as I have a planted tank with a nutrafin CO2 difuser, anyone suggest anything else?

and whats your CO2 like, do you have a drop checker?
why would you be worried about an airstone if you have surface movement?

clean out your filter in tank water rinse it through then put it back in for my oxygen to come through..
if that dont work test your water they may likely have ammonia or nitrite posioning and there starved of oxygen if that is the case do a 50 water change right away..if that is not the case your guppys mite be developing a mouth fungus watch them carefully as they swim have they got any pale spots on there face or body loss of colour ? if they have get a fubgus treatment
if all that is not the case then you just have 2 poor guppys there not as hardy as they used to be due to interbredding
hope this helps

Where do you find you guppies sleep? or is it constantly at the top even when the light goes out?

do you check your co2 cos it is essential you do when you have a yeast based system running
i would run an airstone at night if you dont disconnect the co2 in the evening this will allow the co2 to balance and burn off excess
usually gasping is a bad sign that there is a problem with the fish or the water the fish is in

Do the fish gills look pale, red and inflamed, or lilac.
Any signs of darting, erratic swimming, flicking and rubbing,.
