Also, thanks to all my friends here in kokos especially Trinket, Sunshinegurl and Martha.. U gals has help alot to save popo.. We already try our very best... She will know... RIP popo 08/08/09
  3. Bad news...... Popo didnt eat today.. I feed her pea, she swallow a while and throw them out.. I tot the pea is too big for her, and i made smaller piece, same.. she didnt eat them.. Then i tried feed her floating pellet (soaked a little longer than usual) and still she didnt eat.. I notice her tummy side is very soft when touch.. She seems not active anymore.. Just float and breething slowly.. I put my hand nearer to her, she didnt swim towards my fingers.. She is look like dying soon.. I don wan to lose her.. What can I do now?... Its 2:15am now and I still cant sleep.. cos i wan to keep looking at her.. I afraid tonite will be the last nite I accompany her..... I see her closely.. she seems thinner than usual. her wen at her both side of face become smaller, making her head wen look sharpen than usual.. here is the pic..
  4. Jesi, Thanks for dropping by and leave message here.. I am sorry for your fish too.. Why they have to suffer this floatiness???.. Popo havent swim for 2 MONTHS!!!.. Pipi floating on and off but she still can swim around freely... I am so sad to see popo being trapped inside the round fish bowl most of the time to keep her from redness.. I tried fish net but the redness is getting worst becos her tummy rubbing the net. Keeping her inside he fish bowl is the best way i can do now... and good luck to you too.. Trinket, I tried contact the sales via email, seems that they are not interested to send 1botlle of the jungle food.. No respond from them since i told them i just wan to over 1 bottle.. . I wll keep on follow up on this..
  5. Martha, hug hug.. thanks for sharing the website.. But I hope Trinket can recommend me what to buy for popo and pipi.... at least i know how the product look like and can look around at local shop. If really cant find, will order online from this DrsFosterSmith.com. Waht i am looking is food and the spray..
  6. Just for reference, I know this has been delayed but I would like to comment that Sunshine was correct in guessing the exact cause of the wound. I was also baffled why my own ryukins had white and red rings around their fins. I frowned on what appeared to be a piece of fin tissue only to freak out it was anchorworm. Both anchorworms and fish lice were infesting my goldies altogether and I had to use trichlorfon for that. Lupin, thanks for dropping by, i didnt see the white thing on popo anymore theese few days, guess she is recovered but i m not sure if they will strike back... geee..
  7. I think I fed them all broccoli only for a couple days and she recovered. She's still tippy like a boat with a high center of gravity when she turns, but she's ok otherwise. I hope you solve your little one's problem. ok. i will try broccoli.. thanks beancurdtt..
  8. I have been looking for this but couldnt find medicated food at my local store. I guess if it is necessary, I have to buy online from foreign country which I didnt do before.. Can you recommend type of medicated food suitable for popo and pipi now? and also the spray thing to "wet" the fish body.. I never buy thing online before? How to pay ? credit card? is it safe? geee....
  9. I think it's fine. Last year there was a short time when Ferrero was upside down and floating. She figured out the hanging out in a glass vessel all by herself. She would swim in and float to the top to rest. These little critters are smarter than people give them credit for. BeancurdTT, So, hows Ferrero now? manage to swim at normal? how u cure her? she look so cute.. tiny miny inside glass...
  10. yesterday nite, when i hand feeding popo, i realize popo tummy is very soft and 1 side seems flatten, its like there is nothing inside (not solid as before). I touch pipi tummy to compare, it is solid and no flat.. I am worry, is there something wrong with popo tummy?? She still can eat and poop.. But why her tummy is flaten at 1 side (the float and touch the glass side).. I didnt take photo becos I cant see the flatness by eyes.. Only when touch, can feel it.. pipi is still turn over on and off.. I guess now, she is sleeping upside down.. new style which I don like to see..
  11. Trinket, I added air pump inside the big tank.. Popo reddish will come back if there is air bubble going inside and accumulated into the glassbowl.. so from time to time i must monitor if the small air bubbles has accumulated become big air bubble, i will remove the bubble out.. else, popo's belly will still exposed to air bubble inside the glass bowl.. As for pipi, she flips often.. either at bottom tank, sometimes float upside down in the middle of tank and slowly up to water surface, but becos she was swap by the air bubble from air pump or water outlet pipe, she will quickly swim back..... I treated her peas (soft de-shelled) yesterday.. and will not let her eat so much..... i think pipi have early stage of popo sickness. I don wan her to end up like popo.. i need fast solution... or is there no solution at all?... I am worried... U asked "One thing (only as I know your water is perfect in every other way) I wonder if you have the surface of your tank ruffled? Like splash all along the top?", is the pic below answer ur question?.. This is before I added air pump.. tonite i will capture the view with air pump and post here again..
  12. Bad news... Now is pipi... I notice pipi start to turn up side down at bottom tank, middle of tank and sometime floating at water level when she is resting from swimming... i know sometimes she is sleeping becos I try to wave her to get her attention, she move or wake up.... last time she used to bottom sitting when she is sleeping at her favourite corner of the tank.. I measure the water parameter as below: Ammonia = 0 Nitrite = N/A (I just found out the 1st drop bottle finish) Nitrate = 10-20 PH = 8 KH = blue to yellow-orange in 4drops. ( I dunno wat value I should put here, 1st time using it) What shall I do now? I don wan pipi end up like popo.. I don wan my fish to just float.. I wan them swim happily... Tomorrow I will do large water change on the big tank.. 70% water change.. Please refer to photo..
  13. Popo reddish has reduced alot.. I think trap her in glass bowl is working.. I will keep on update on her again.. Thanks..
  14. I tried yesterday and notice she wasnt really "flush off" by the water outlet cos the water flow is very thin.. Infact, she looked struggling under the water flow.. maybe she don have energy to fight back and swim away from the water outlet flow.. So, I took her out and put back into Q-tank.. sigh!! The reddish become worst. Then I decided to trap her inside a fish bowl (round) becos i believe the glass surface will not hurt her belly.. I put the glass bowl in side way (sleeping position) inside the Qtank .. and move the air bubble near the bowl opening side as near as possible so that popo will have some air.. i hope.. This morning she is just fine, ofcos stick to the glass surface all time.. I hope tonite when i got back home, her reddish will reduce.. I am not sure if I am doing the correct thing by trapping her inside a fish glass bowl..but thats the best I can do yesterday.. Ofcos tonite when i get home, I will release her out to free her.. LOL..
  15. Wow.. Imber.. good idea.. I will try tonite.. Actually, I didnt "trap" popo inside the net anymore as yesterday I notice the reddish on her belly became worst.. more red and her fin also red and seems broken.... Guess it was damaged by the net due to rubbing...... I just let her floating without net.. Tonite i will try to do something to keep popo always near the air bubble.. I don have filter in Qtank.. thats why I need to do water change everyday.. Trinket, can i put popo back to big tank now? there have water outlet area, I can keep popo near there and cover that area with tank seperator that I just bought).. wat u think? Thanks
  16. Imber, Thanks for your concern and follow up this thread.. I am glad that so many people are caring popo.. I really hope both of our fishes will recover soon.. Talking about the net, I found reddish come back on fins and lobes.. guess they are exactly the same thing u mentioned about the belly side and tail rubbing the net.... hmm.. i cant figure how make it not rubbing since the net stop popo from floating up to water level.... .. U said "I've modified it so now it's right side up with a powerhead with a spraybar over the top so it keeps his belly wet." Can u show me the pic? I am sorry, I don understand cos my English is not so good.. :[ BTW, everyday, when I get home, I will "release" popo out from net as I am sad to see her get "trapped". She moves little around inside the net.. So, i will take her out from the net and put her in big tank together with pipi.. and I will do water change on the bucket (Q tank). and let her float freely for few hours.. she "swim" upside down happily and eat actively, i think.. but i am sure that's the greatest thing i see at this moment... Matha, sorry I recently seldom log in facebook.. what can i buy from the drsfostersmith.com?
  17. Sunshinegurl, don worry.. u help me alot too.. thanks for the hugss and caring wishes.. thats means alot to me and to popo.. Trinket, if popo kidney is damage, can i just continue to feed her the sinking pellet and peas and no more med... I also have flakes, can i feed her this?? The composition is as below: fish and fish derivaties, cereal, yeast, vegetable protein extract, molluscs and crustaceans, oils and fats, algea, various sugars. Additives : Vitamin A 291000 IU/kg, Vitamins D3 1820 IU/kg, Vitamin E 120 mg/kg, L-ascrobyl-2-polyphosphate 352 mg/kg, lecithin, citric acid. BTW, the reddish reduce alot.. . I don have camera with me now,, cant take the pic.. but I am sure popo will recovered from reddish soon.. Gambate, popo...
  18. I have this breeding net.. But will she ok if she just being kept inside the net and didnt have enough space to move around.. cos the net space is kinda small for her..anyhow, I will try tonite. and capture pic.... thanks to Imber for this great idea.. Trinket, thanks thanks thanks.. However, this can solve the reddish go away, but still the main problem, the floatiness...... ..BTW, is Imber fish recovered from floatiness?...
  19. popo is almost floating upside down now..(no more side floating) and reddish come back... but she still can eat and poop.. normal poop.. I am not sure if I should put med... I keep on changing water everyday, feed her pellet and soft de-shelled pea.. BTW, i remembered someone from koko's mentioned before a spray kinda medicine that we can spray on fish body to prevent air dry their body coating to prevent infection... anyone know? I try to find in my local fish shop but couldnt find.. I think I have to buy now, even only can buy foreign country..as I am very sad to see popo always have reddish on and off... poor popo.. Some of my friends said she might have eggs but how to see if she have eggs or not? She is still young izit? I have been keeping popo and pipi for 2 years. I assume when I bought popo, she is about 1 year becos her size is very small.. half inch body only.. I am not sure if she is mature enough to have eggs.. ???
  20. Trinket, Sure I will do my best.. I will keep on changing water everyday, feed her pellet and peas.. and will monitor.. Will keep u all updates.. Thanks all for advise and help.. I hope the next time I update here, it will be good news..
  21. I am not sure if I need to add medicine anymore.. I notce that since I didnt put med and just change water everyday, feed popo pellet and peas.. she seem have more energy.. but still didnt swim.. just floating.. Can i just ignore the anchor worm thing first? and lets solve the floating issue?...
  22. yesterday i notice the fungus/anchor worm is gone.. no reddish on wen.. but i found the fungus/anchor worm floating on water and I scoop it out from water.. Its transparent and feel like jelly/gel as usual.. I cant take pic becos its transparent.. but when it is inside water, its look like white cotton and wont move it self.... Is anchor worm look like this? will anchor worm moving just like other worm?
  23. ... gosh.. all the while, i tot it was fungus.. ... anchor worm!!!!.... How to get rid of them?... geeeeeeee... what is "Hydrogen peroxide"??? The floating issue not yet solve, now anchor worm.. OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!
