  1. I use external filters and when I got a new one I had a lot of trouble getting the pipes connected to the hard plastic bits of the inlet and outlet fittings and the tank connections as they were so tight. I was given the following tip by someone at the lfs. Take a cup or heat resistant container and fill 3/4 with boiling water, then dip the tip of the pipe in it for about a minute. This will make it go softer and will be much easier to get the pipes on and also gives a much tighter connection when it has cooled back down so is less likely to leak. I have also found it can increase the life of suction cups. I have found the suction cups on my ehiem internal seem to flatten out and not stick so well after a while. Dipping them in boiling water also seems to help them reform to there original shape and stick better. Sorry if this has already been posted, I did have a look back but couldn't see it mentioned.
  2. I am not expert but you really need to be adding a conditioner to the water to remove chlorine and chloramines from the new water you add??
  3. Sorry for the delay in responding I had forgotten about this. Here is what each thing treats:- Medi-Gold To rid your cherished but sickly goldfish of bacterial and fungal diseases and to encourage a speedy recovery! Medi-Worm Excellent for treating internal worms. Metro-Med Treat "Hole in the Head", Internal Parasites and Symptoms of Dropsy. Contains Metronidazole. Praziquantel 'Prazi' is extremely effective for the treatment of external flukes, liver flukes, internal parasites and internal worms in koi, goldfish and tropical fish. If this is all people want the postage for a pot of metromeds including all postage Kungfuman will be ?15, let me know if you want anything else, sorry the exchange rate isn't so good now as when I posted the orginal topic. Poppy I will do a half pot for you as I am sure someone in the uk will request it at some point, That will be ?9 all in. Jenny, it was the Progold I said to you before about. I am going to get a bag of the hikari saki for koi as the goldfish has tiny pellets but it is going to be massive so if you want some of that instead let me know, so if you just want the metromeds they will be ?15 or if you still want the progold as well it will be ?24 all in. I will leave this another week incase anyone else wants anything and then request money from the interested people.
  4. I have alot of anubis in my tank and they don't seem to mind the salt for treatments but not sure about other plants. But I would like to point out you shouldn't really keep salt in your tank all the time and only use it to treat problems.
  5. Don't bin it, eheim do most of the parts for their filters. I know you aren't in uk but here is a site that lists all the part numbers which might help you find it elsewhere http://www.fishandfins.co.uk/eheim-manual-spares.htm if you click on the little images they enlarge Hope this helps
  6. Glad to hear they are doing so much better You might be best to test and see how soft your water is, as if it is very soft you might be best adding something to increase it as goldfish have to work much harder to osmoregulate themselves in soft water which might increase the chance of your fish getting sick again.
  7. Did you get the stuff I sent you Poppy?
  8. Will see if we can get you sorted Poppy
  9. I am just about to do an order, the posting is here if you want some but it will be about a month before it arrives. http://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/forum/index.php?/topic/82128-anyone-want-us-medsprazi-metromeds-medigold-etc/page__pid__921197__st__0entry921197 If you are in a hurry and need it asap I can probably send you some of what I have left?
  10. Sorry Mods this is a duplicate post but I know alot of people missed it last time I posted that I was ordering meds. If people do, please follow the link below to the main posting to let me know http://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/forum/index.php?/topic/82128-anyone-want-us-medsprazi-metromeds-medigold-etc/page__pid__921197__st__0entry921197
  11. Having been sending other poeple alot of my medication I am in need of some more already To reduce postage costs does anyone else want anything and I will order it all, have it sent to me and then post it on. Below is what I can order at present day currency conversion but NOT INCLUDING POSTAGE COSTS The Prazi lools very expensive but you need 1/4 to 1/2 of a teaspoon to dose 100 gallons so it goes along way, if people want say only 12.5grams and I get a few poeple wanting it I can get a 25g or 50g pot and split it before posting it from me so please ask, I can also split the 8oz post so medigold or metromeds if people want but obviously need people in multipes of two wanting that. Metromeds 8oz ?9 Medigold 8oz ?9 Jumpstart 8oz ?8.40 Praziquantel 25g ?30 Praziquantel 50g ?45 Mediworm 8oz ?9 Progold 2 pound bag ?18 Progold 8oz bag ?6 Buff it up 20oz ?12 KoiRx trace elements 16oz ?6 Or in bundles Metromeds & Prazi (25g)& medigold ?45 Metromeds & Jumpstart ?15 Metromeds & Prazi (25g) ?37.70 Medigold & Prazi (25g) ?37.70 Medigold & Jumpstart ?15 The postage last time was 0-1 pound ?12, 1-2 pounds ?21 and 2-4 pounds ?33 so the more people want stuff the cheaper it will be, and there will also be P&P cost sfor sendin it from me to you but that will be charger at cost. If people can let me know if they are interested in the next two weeks I can contact Sempai and get a quote for postage and then people can confirm if they are happy with the postage, obviously the more people the less the postage will be. I would like to point out these meds could be seized by customs on the way into the country, I have done a few orders and know others in the UK who order from them and no-one has ever had their shipment siezed but with more people wanting stuff I can't really take on the cost if it doesn't make it so please take this into consideration when telling me you want.
  12. If you are worried about reaching filters hung on the back you could go with canister filters which you put under the tank so it isn't a problem. For cleaning algae off the back of the tank you should be able to get something like this http://www.charterhouse-aquatics.co.uk/catalog/hagen-deep-reach-algae-scrub-p-1684.html I ahve a big tank (100ish US gallons) and it is easier than having loads of little tanks, although I have to do water changes with buckets so it is a fair amount of work.
  13. If you want to get one check it will fit in your cupboard, I nearly got it before realising it was massive and it wouldn't actually fit so I had to go for the next size down and I have an eheim 2078e and eheim 2224 on my main tank one on each end of the tank
  14. I have eheims and adore them, but I thik they are really pricey int he US
  15. This is my tank with the LED lights and is planted, the photo was taken with fluorescents to make it a bit clearer but I don't use them normally and my low light plants do fine with just a bit of plant food.
