    Fin Rot?

    Have been doing the daily 15% water changes still. Carried out another test today, but the results are pretty much the same :/ pH: 7.4 Nitrite: 1.0 Nitrate: 7.5 Ammonia: 1.0 Do I continue doing the water changes? I've also noticed that my all my harlequins are shoaling unusally low at the bottom...

    Fin Rot?

    Thanks. Unfortunately at the moment, I think it is unfair to buy any more fish :/ If this problem clears up however; I am probably going to rehome them and the glowlight danios. He's hiding/staying low down at the moment to stay out of that penguins way. Unusually (as I know they can be...

    Leeches In Tank

    Ok thanks, well I did put the salt in the end. Someone else suggested to me that it may be planarian worms? Thanks

    Fin Rot?

    Ok thanks. Should I top up on the salt as well when I do each water change? Touch wood, since I've done that substrate change, the pygmy cory's seem to be quite happy, and the neons and cardinals do as well. In fact, these are basically the only fish which seem alright I think! But I will keep...

    Fin Rot?

    Yeah, I might try and do that sometime. It's just difficult to tell which fish are healthy because most of them are still flicking :/ And yeah, I think that was them. It was difficult to tell as they were so small, but I couldn't visibly see a different shaped head or eyes. It literally just...

    Fin Rot?

    Thanks. Yeah, I realised I have problems with my stocking, as I've had a lot of these fish since I was starting up (about a year ago) so I didn't really have any idea about stocking at the time, or they have been passed onto me from a friend! I did kinda want to sort it out, but because I have...

    Fin Rot?

    Thank you for all the information. Unfortunately I have not been able to quarantine the sick fish. If you remember, I had a sick platy with a bent spine (who was the only obviously ill/lathargic fish) which I did quarantine in a 20L tank or so. However; I could tell she was not happy in the tank...

    Fin Rot?

    Hi Tokis_Phoenix, I think I've spoken to you before about all the problems I had in my tank that had been going on for 6 months(you thought it may have been TB?)! Well just to say I still don't think I've got that sorted! Anyway, to answer your questions: pH: 7.9 Ammonia: 1.0 Nitrite: 1.0...

    Fin Rot?

    I noticed yesterday that some of my fish had jagged tails which were white at the end. I put aquarium salt and a fin rot treatment in anyway, but I was wondering if someone could tell me if this is definitely fin rot or not? Thanks

    Leeches In Tank

    Was changing my substrate large gravel substrate today when I noticed tiny little black 'leech-like' things in the bottom of my bucket after vacuuming. They are black, move like leeched, and about 0.5cm long. There were quite a few of them sticking to the bottom of the bucket after I emptied the...

    Any ideas on the opening times of Amazon Aquatics, and if they take guppy and platy's (from a batch of fry that I have raised)? Thanks

    Serious Illness Been Going On For 6 Months

    Ok, I think I have a spare filter lying around so I will try and use that in the quarantine tank ASAP for the platy. And I don't have any carbon in my filter, and never use any candles or spray's in my room as I know it can poison the tank. Thanks for the help, but I know there isn't really much...

    Serious Illness Been Going On For 6 Months

    Thank you. Well unfortunately the danio passed away a few days ago. It was for the best, because I could see she was suffering and she looked dreadful. I will also try and get a quarantine tank set up as soon as possible (I have one in storage with an undergravel filter which doesn't require a...

    Serious Illness Been Going On For 6 Months

    Thank you very much for the advice. When you mentioned keeping a close eye on their body weight- at the moment- there are curently no fish that I would say are an abnormal body weight (the danio has an odd body shape around the sore). It is just a symptom I have seen in the past- but I will keep...

    Serious Illness Been Going On For 6 Months

    Thanks. I just read that article and I have no idea if that's it or not becasue there is such a broad spectrum of symptoms and secondary diseases associated with it. Do you think I should try treating the tank with this Waterlife Sterazin as recommended by 'Myrtle' first, and then consider TB...
