2 red and 2 blue to keep my son happy.
Some of you will have saw that I have a new 50 litre tank (mature filter) and I was debating about what to put in there.
I do want to add some Neons at some point and maybe a Gourami or 2 - can anyone advise me as to whether these 3 types if...
Oh great - that was more than I was expecting! My son will be happy!
Should I buy them in stages? It's just that I'm pregnant and due on Thursday so I'm a bit pushed for time! Lol!
What would you guys recomend adding first? I don't want to ammonia bomb the tank!! :crazy:
We've got an empty 50 Litre tank at the mo (fully mature filter) and I'm just wondering what I can have in there...?
My little boy really wants Guppies (the tank was his b'day prezzy) but I'm just wondering what I can mix with them?
Can I mix Neon's with Guppies? Any suggestions would...
Yeah it is hard, I didn't think I'd ever get so attached to a fish to be honest! Lol! :blush:
It was so sad but at least I know I did everything I could of to try to save him... -_-
The others all seem to be in good health so here's to hoping I don't have to do all this again any time soon!
Just to let everyone know that Blueberry is now part of the ocean in the sky... :(
He was getting more and more distressed as the day went on today so we put the little guy out of his misery by putting him in freezing cold water - Wilder was right, it seemed instant and I left him in there for...
My son is only 4 so I'll probably get away with telling him that he's gone to live at the fishy hospital - he knows Blueberry's been poorly so I suppose it won't be a major shock for him!
I'll post when it's done - thanks so much for all your help over the past couple of weeks! :flowers:
Is that painful for the fish?? :unsure:
I didn't really know of the most humane way to do it...?
If I fridge cool the water for a long while and then add a heap of ice cubes would that be ok??
Aww - I feel awful about this... :-(
The tail damage was so rapid - one night I noticed a tiny hole in his tail, by the morning it was a complete rip - by that night his tail started to shred and now he only has half left :(
I fairly sure my little guy has an internal infection of some kind - I don't think there's much hope...
Looks like something similar to what I'm dealing with Hun - my male guppy's lost half his tail now! :(
I'm not very experienced so I can't really advise you - wait for Wilder to come online! ;)
Good luck! :good:
The last dose of the Anti Internal Bacteria med was 6 days ago - the instrustions say I can add another dose after a week so I'm thinking I may try one more dose... :unsure:
I know I've done what I can but he seems so content - he's eating and swimming normally, he's not hanging around at the...
Blueberry is still with us - eating, swimming, still bloated, I haven't really seen him pooping and missing nearly half his tail! -_-
I've just done another water change and it looks like one if not both of his eyes has "popped out"??? :unsure:
Obviously I'm taking this as "not...
I'm by no means an expert so you might want to wait for once of the more experienced guys to pop in but I believe white stringy poo usually means internal parasites!
I think you should probably invest in some Anti Internal Bacteria Meds ASAP!
Good Luck :good:
