Needed a change so moved fish around

Moved the oscars and parrot fish to the 75 gallon. Will still have to do a really huge water change once a week but doing that anyways. Moved the goldfish (and the new ones) to the 150. Will still get to do 30 to 50 gallons a week. Nothing changes for me but big changes for the fish. Pictures on the forum when stuff settles down.

So I am now convinced the BN was the issue

I never saw him do it but since I have removed him for the tank Sam has no new rips and the two she had are healing. So once Angels fins are healed I well move her back to the 75 then I will be moving Flipper to the 20 gallon and try different foods to help not flip so much. Now days s/he stays wedged between to plants so they can hold him down in the water. Still eating but spending more and more time upside down.

I have no patience and other things.

Sam has been moved to the 75 gallon. I moved Angel into the 20 gallon cause her fins are in really really bad shape. Next day Sam had two splits in her fins. So removed my BN pleco to the planted tank yesterday. Still treating Angel for her torn up fins. No new splits in Sams fins. So maybe it was the BN only time well tell for sure. Sam is loving all the space and Angel seems to be ok as an only fish. I added two filters to the 20 gallon in hopes I can get away with less water changes on

Day 36

I stopped the prazi for a few days cause of all the stress with my Dad. Now that things seem to be calm again I did a 90% water change and added prazi and salt.

Prazi Pro 40 day 7 day rounds DAY 1

Doing this cause even though the larger tears in Angels fins improved there are new smaller tears. Doing a 75 % water change. Adding powder PP with 1% salt.

Excel

Have started adding it to the goldfish tank daily. While the amazon swords are still coming in short they are coming in greener. So I think it is helping some. But only been doing this for a week so really need more time to know for sure. i am thinking of getting a new shop light for that tank so I can have more light on the plants. See if that would help too. That well give me three light bulbs instead of just two.

The Gravel

Now that my goldfish are bigger the large pea gravel is no longer safe for them. So removed it from the tank yesterday. Now need to see about some smaller gravel. However it may have to wait. I really dislike the bare bottom but the river rocks help. The older plants in the tank are doing awful. To much die off. They well go in the pond this spring after a major trim and I hope they well recover. Then I well have to bring them inside for about four months next winter.. But hopefully the

Ok took it down yesterday.

Angelfish, rainbows and the two louche are in the Oscar tank. I lost two of the three rainbows but everyone else is doing fine. I moved the two BN plecos, 3 upside down cats, 5 ottos?(how did that happen I only suppose to have four) 3 neons, male betta and three ADF"S to the 10 gallon with about half the plants. I did a dirt tank so need to let it clear to get good pictures. Moved the rest of the plants into the goldfish tank. I may move the BN's over to the goldfish tank but for now going t

Tearing down my 35

My Dad has given me my grandmothers china and china cabinet. I need the spot so the 35 is in for it to go. No where else to really put it. I am going to move more then should over to a 10 gallon in my bed room with most the plants. Moving some plants to the goldfish tank.. The rest go to the local mom and pop pet shop. I never really look at it where it is. I just take care of it and take pictures.

Just some information.

I now have the proper filtration on the 150 and the 75. So that is less of a worry. Buttons healed up very quickly. Must of caught him in the tube very fast. His red lips where back to normal the next day. Soon as I stop getting brown all over the tank I well try plants ago. I well have to get some new ones cause the 6 gallon looks to good to take them out. lol I have been thinking about another goldfish here lately and hubby remembered. At least this time he gave me the fish still in ba

Moved plants from the goldfish tank

Think the tank needs to age some more. So well move them back in next March. By then brown stuff should be green stuff. For now they are in my 6 gallon nano tank. I sucked up poor Buttons he now has a nice pink mouth. Poor guy.

Hope to have the 75 up on Monday evening.

Found the stain to stain it black. Going to stain it today. I'll see about pictures. Then put protect vanish on it. Two coats one Sat and one Sun should be bringing it back in the house Monday when Bobby gets in from work. That pleco I bought to grow out is dead. Everything seemed fine but this morning it was floating. I hate when they do that. I could not even try to save it cause I had no idea something was wrong. Maybe I can do without one. Going to do water changes today. Yep even th

Tank progress

Not able to get the 75 gallon tank stand stained today. Had to order the ebony stain. It should get here Tuesday so should get started next weekend. I have ordered some driftwood. And the filter for the 150 is on order. I am thinking of maybe a couple apple snails instead of another goldfish. Think I would rather have 20 gallon per goldfish. Five for the rubber lip and five for each snail. I picked up a new betta today. Set if up in a 1 gallon bowl by my computer. Need to see about some p

All fish are fine.

Things seem to have settled down in the tanks. Luna is growing. May try to get pictures a little later to share. I shut down the 6 gallon again. Just was not doing well. I keep trying cause it was so expensive but I need to give it up till I can find a better place to put it. The planted tank is filling in but very slowly. Bought a new light for it in hopes that might help. Got 2 watts per gallon now. Don't want any more then that. Some of the new plants I tried didn't do well but some of

Just an update

My zebra angelfish passed. No one else got sick he just got slow and color washed out. Bottom sat for a couple weeks, Still eating but then passed one night. Prazi is also gone. He just was having more and more trouble eating. I just felt so bad about him starving and could not keep doing it to him. I am spending less time on the internet and more with my pets and doing non internet stuff. Need more balance in my life. Now that I know I can live without the internet I well be allowing wee
