  1. i was thinking in a few weeks in getting tetras, what size tank is good for tetras? any good sites for their care? thanks
  2. he just died... little sad... but now i know more on what i need to do for my next fish... should i let the filter run for some time before the next one??ok real upset :(ok real upset:(
  3. just did water chnage with dechlor... he doesnt look good, worse... not swimming, looks like balance is off..
  4. had the 10 running for quite some time, did have another fish in there like a month ago but i transferred the betta to a bowl. i am not using zeolite chips, the pH is 7.4 and i allow it to equilibrate to norm temp of 72 range before i add the fish in. so i should change 50% every day, is that too much??
  5. ok thanks... i use just a plastic container to remove h20
  6. if this does work, does it usually take a few days??? i feel bad for the guy, i dont want to kill it. want him to live happy and healthy
  7. whats a syphon? so no water change for now, just leave fish in and water dechlor wont hurt it ...
  8. ok so ill buy water dechlor tomorrow and i can just add it with my fish in there, or do i need to take him out ?or do i take him out on seperate container, do a 75% water change and add dechlor? and then how long i wait to put him back in?
  9. ok, thanks,.. good to know, he was fine for 2 weeks.. you think that is the reason why he is acting like this>??? too late to add de-chlor?? with fish already in it?
  10. well it said promotes good electrolyte count and gill function, so hows that bad?
  11. the water is filtered from refrigerator.. tespoon per gallon
  12. no never treated, think he has??? .. he used to flash on the heater last week. also looks like a yellow spot on his side, could that help?
  13. Test Results for the Following: Ammonia Level? 0 Nitrite Level? 0 Nitrate level? 0 Ph Level, (If possible,KH and GH and chloramines)? 7.4 Ph Level out of the Tap? Tank size (How many Gals) and How long has it been running? 10 What is the name and size of the filter/s? aqua clear 20 How often do you change the water and how much? 15% weekly How many fish in the tank and their size? 1 lionhead What kind of water additives or conditioners? just aquarium salt w each change Any medications added to the tank? n/a Add any new fish to the tank? no What do you feed your fish? flakes, sometimes brine shrimp Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt", bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? white spots on head, looks like wen growth but not hard looking. not really sure tho, no spots anywhere else Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, ect..? bottom and ocassional goes to top a lot. has air stone
  14. my lionhead hes just very sluggish. not swimming like he used to. all levels are 0. ph 7.4. 10 gall. has been going to top a lot and then again goes to bottom and kind of just stays there. doesnt seem like he has swim bladder disease but his swimming is a little off. he also has white spots on his head.
  15. he swims around fairly normal, but sometimes he will swim up to the heater standing up vertical and hit his side real fast and flash away from it. he has been doing this probably little over 1.5 weeks now. i have had him for like two weeks now. i did notice that there is a faint yellowish blotch (if you would call it) on his side.. could this be velvet? i also noted last week that he had wen growth (white pimples on just on his face). appetite is fine. i am in the process of getting another tank, since the one i have is too small for lionheads. i check the levels.. the ammonia is .25 and i cant seem to get it to zero. how often and how much water should i change? will frequent changes stress him out a lot? thats just my main concern. thanks
