  7. Ok so I bought her last month and she looked healthy , I took media from my other tank to establish this tank but I don't think it's fully cycled, I was on day 6 of the prazi schedule when I came home today to see her floating on top of the tank , she has no balance I think she has sb but how? She was fine all along , I tried to feed her peas but she's not eating anything and I think I'm gonna loose her tonight :-( the only thing I could think of is when I do her cleaning she stands on her nose I think that's how she is when she's scard, any suggestions would help thank you,

  9. Ok so it all started about 2weeks ago when I bough Eco complete for the aquarium , I added 3 bags of it in the tank and he stared acting different, he's been bottom sitting a lot he also lost a few scales and he has bloody streeks, he's been healthy since I got him like 3 yrs ago he was a few months old when I got him . Last week when I was moving the plants in the aquarium I pushed all the Eco complete to the side and he just moved to the place with no rocks , this is the first time I placed any gravel in the tank , I always had it bear bottom. Any suggestions why he's acting like this and what to do? I wanted to put .1 %salt but I'm not sure cuz I think it will kill all my plants, the only new thing that I bough new was the plants but I did a bleach dip for the plants b4 added it I the tank.

  11. Oh thanks for telling me that :-) I was going to use .3% with liquid prazi , I didn't know that :-( At higher salt concentrations the liquid prazi isn't as effective. You can double dose the prazi and treat with .3% salt, but unless you have a fish that is showing some serious fluke symptoms I would just stick with the regular dosage and .1% salt Also, if your fish is not showing immediate symptoms of flukes that require attention right away, you can start off with .3% for a week, then drop down to .1% and start prazi. Here are the prazi schedules if you haven't seen it already: http://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/forum/index.php?/topic/105076-schedules-for-the-treatment-of-flukes-etc-using-praziquantel/ Thank you so much , you answer my questions :-)

  15. I'm thinking throughout the tank , I always had a bare bottom tank and I want to change that :-)
  16. If I use the Eco complete and the root tabs should I also use the flourish? Isn't that too much?
  17. I really liked that plant but it completed died :-( oh well
  18. Yup I already ordered Eco complete and root tabs since last week just waiting for them , 79 gallon tank with one big goldy , not sure about the lighting
  19. I ordered Eco complete and root tabs online just waiting to receive them :-), I'm not sure how many watts, my tank is a 79 gallon tank with 1 big black moor , will be getting 2 or 3 more goldy but I'm looking for healthy goldfish but it's sometimes really hard to find :-( thanks for the reply
