    Tank Disaster - What To Do Now?

    A parting suggestion on the initial issue...this seems to have come in with the new fish, and without any external symptoms was quite possibly an internal protozoan.  I have seen this twice.  There are many types of protozoan, and I am not going to speculate on treatments as I could well make...

    Tank Disaster - What To Do Now?

    Temp is around 26/27. I guess what I'm asking is, assuming I lose all my fish what is the next step for me? To empty the tank, clean it all out and start the cycling process again or is there a way of treating the tank before adding more fish at a later date? Presumably if there aren't any fish...

    Tank Disaster - What To Do Now?

      I couldn't agree more, I had actually decided that going forward I would be quarantining all new fish before they go into the main tank.   I agree also with what you have said about Platy's and what is becoming frustrating is that I am reading this with regards to a lot of Tropical Fish that i...

    Tank Disaster - What To Do Now?

    I introduced 3 peacock gudgeons who were very small, at the time I had 7 dwarf neon rainbows, 3 platys and 1 dwarf gourami. One of the gudgeons died that night and the neons over the next couple of days. The dwarf gourami died last week, about five weeks later. The tank is Fluval Roma 125...

    Tank Disaster - What To Do Now?

    Hi everyone,   I'm looking for advice as to how best to approach my situation and the best way to move forward.   It's roughly a year since I first set up my tank, it had been going really well until I added some new fish about 6 weeks ago.  As soon as I introduced them I started having problems...

    Wasting Disease In Platys

    Really, do you think it could just been down to source? I have so many articles of people having this problem that I assumed it was more widespread. I will try another source though as my LFS which is one of the main ones in London is making me slightly cautious. I do often see dead fish or...

    Wasting Disease In Platys

    Hi all, I absolutely love Platys but I don't seem to have much luck with them. I currently have three in my tank which started out at about eight but all but the three current ones got that wasting disease where they get all thin, sunken bellies and then die. I've just suffered a loss of fish...

    Quick Question Regarding Carbon Filter

    Am currently treating my tank with meds and as per the instructions I have removed the Carbon Filter. On Monday I will finish the treatment and will need to put the carbon back into the filter. My question is, is this safe to do so or will the Carbon still have any bacteria/disease that was...

    Help! White Mark And Swollen Mouth On Dwarf Neon Rainbow

       All good points and thanks for sharing. To be honest I have no idea what it is that has caused this. I can only assume it was the new fish because I have added fish several times in the past to this tank and these particular dwarf neons have been present every time and I've never had a...

    Suggestions For Some New Tank Mates :-)

    Thanks for all this, it's been rally helpful and interesting reading. It is a possibility then that rather than the new fish bringing in the diesease, the stress actually brought it out of my rainbows. I doubt that I would have had a mini cycle because the four fish I added were absolutely...

    Help! White Mark And Swollen Mouth On Dwarf Neon Rainbow

    Hey, Yes, Ammonia is 0, Nitrite is 0 and Nitrate is about 30ppm. I have the master kit so tested it myself and all was as normal. It's definitely the fish I bought because the current set up has been up and running for a few months now without any problems. I added the fish on Friday evening...
