    Corydora having difficulties swimming, body twisting and not able to float

    Hello again, Over the weekend I have put 200g of aquarium salt. My aquarium holds around 90 litres of water with displacement, its about 70g less than recommend on the box. I will see if theres any improvement over the week, and if not I will put the fish down, as it is upsetting me that the...

    Corydora having difficulties swimming, body twisting and not able to float

    Hi Colin, I have had a good look and there is no blood at all on any part of the fish. Theres probably many reasons why, but I am curious as to why this particular corydora has suffered this, I have never seen this before with any of my fish ever. I do have aquarium salt with me from...

    Corydora having difficulties swimming, body twisting and not able to float

    Hello Colin! Sorry for late reply. I have a seachem tidal 50. I clean it every time I change the water because it gets clogged up with snails and debris from plants. I clean the filter case/propeller with tap water and I clean the media using the tank water. I used to gravel clean about 1...

    Corydora having difficulties swimming, body twisting and not able to float

    Thats very interesting to hear! It feels as if the corydora has lost ability in one side of his body to move it, it can only move one side and so it cant balance himself. The fact that it cant swim up, might indicate it also has something to do with the swim bladder. Im not comfortable adding...

    Corydora having difficulties swimming, body twisting and not able to float

    Hi Oblio, please excuse my late reply, I am so busy these days. My tap water has very high nitrates I measure at 30ppm, and the water report from my water supplier says similar (31.2ppm) I filter my water using the fish logic nitrate resin. I then on top of that have a rechargeable resin bag...

    Corydora having difficulties swimming, body twisting and not able to float

    Hi there everyone, I just have a situation happening with my corydora. For the past week one of my corydora has been struggling to swim and cannot control its body movements. It will try and swim and will just fall on its back or side and stay there before trying again. Obviously my biggest...

    Best Method of reducing nitrates, without affecting minerals and other nutrients.

    Ah thank you, it was a low tech tank, but about 4 months ago I decided to include more plants and upgraded to a high tech tank, so its running on Tri-Spec 2 lights, and co2 injection. I provide root tabs, and some liquid fertiliser (Seachem Iron, Potassium and Phosphorus). But mostly just root...

    Best Method of reducing nitrates, without affecting minerals and other nutrients.

    Hi all, sorry for the late reply, been busy. Since posting this thread I have gone and done some more research and have decided to go with the C3 resin (i think its the equivalent of the API Nitra-Zorb). I placed it in my canister filter, on top of the biohome filter media. I then recorded the...

    Best Method of reducing nitrates, without affecting minerals and other nutrients.

    Hello, I have been struggling with high nitrates ever since I first started fish keeping, and its caused me to maintain weekly water changes for 30-50%. I am now not able to continue doing weekly water changes as I leave the house for long periods due to new changes. I therefore decided to...

    Filter Intake Tube Level

    Hi there, I believe that aquarclear filter is the same one used in the Fluval edge 23l and 46l. I believe they use the same exact filter for both models. The fluval edge 46 litre is very high but not wide and yet they designed it with that short intake, its not ideal but it will definitely work...

    Anubias?

    Ah thats interesting, thanks for letting me know the two types! As mentioned in a reply above, ive just pushed it a little bit in the substrate to keep it down, but the entire rhizome is above. Thank you!

    Anubias?

    Thank you, unfortunately I haven't got any rock big enough for the large anubias (its very big), so i've placed a weight underneath it and just pressed it slightly into the substrate, leaving the large rhizome above it and most of the roots, whereas the smaller ones ive used some black sewing...

    Anubias?

    Hello guys, just received these as a gift, but the person didn't tell me what they are? Am I right in saying the big one is an anubias? Not sure what the smaller ones are, unless they're baby plants from the mother. Any info and also any tips on how to keep them and make them flourish would...
