  1. What size is the home? I know the filter you have is for 1-3 gallons.... sorry but i think you're overstocked and underfiltered.
  2. I LOVE THIS ha ha hahahahahahahahahaha rofl. I love the wiggling leg at the end. This had me in fits Yeah you're right it is funny...
  3. Looks like that link didn't work. Try this one: CLICK HERE.
  4. Yeah, it doesn't have to be a waxed plastic cup.... just some sort of item that can hold water and has the ability to be swished around.
  5. Oh My Gosh! That is a lot of goldfish!
  6. The Omega One pellets are about 8 months old. I also feed them peas, corn, lettuce and blood-worms. As "improved" means his spine was straight again, but his left side was paralyzed. He didn't recognize me anymore and then when he stopped being paralyzed he was better but then got worse. And he always hovers on his right side if he doesn't swim.
  7. I do 25% water changes every other day, so I don't think it's toxins. I have a bare-bottom tank, so no toxins in gravel....
  8. Wow, the water nitrate limit here is 4..... surprised.
  9. *]Test Results for the Following: [*]Ammonia Level? <.25 (I rinsed out my media... ) [*]Nitrite Level? 0 [*]Nitrate level? 10 [*]Ph Level, Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines)? 8.0 [*]Ph Level, Tap (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines)? 7.4 [*]Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? API Freshwater Master Test Kit [*]Water temperature? 72* F [*]Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? Nemo was in the 10G but put him in a 5G since yesterday [*]What is the name and size of the filter(s)? On 5G: TOP FIN 10 Power Filter [*]How often do you change the water and how much? 30% every day [*]How many fish in the tank and their size? Nemo, 5 inches long [*]What kind of water additives or conditioners? I added Tetra AquaSafe Water Conditioner to treat the water [*]What do you feed your fish and how often? Omega One Sinking Pellets, and peas [*]Any new fish added to the tank? No... [*]Any medications added to the tank? API Erythromycin [*]Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? No unusual findings... [*]Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? 2 weeks ago, Nemo started acting weird. He had a bent spine, paralyzed right side, and didn't care about food. I went to my best LFS and got a 5G and some API Erythromycin, and after the full treatment of 4 days, he was better. I put him back into the 10G with Cynthia, but yesterday he showed the same symptoms again. I put him into the 5G again and now I need every single possible tip and help.... please.
  10. Technically I have four, but two of them are not housing aquatic species and the other two are. (1.5 Gallon (not used), 2 Gallon (Not used), 5 Gallon (Using), and 10 Gallon (Using).)
  11. Omega One Pellets' main ingredients are salmon, herring, and cod. (I think...) They are yummy and do not make the water cloudy.
  12. Ugh, now I have a stomach ache. I ate and it's not that bad anymore...
  13. I JUST got my mouth full with water being treated with salt, melafix, and erythromycin or something like that. BUT the worst part is that my friend's Bat Mitzvah invitation was right in front of me and I didn't want to get it wet, so i swallowed before thinking. I know erythromycin is an acne antibiotic, so i'm not worried.
  14. Also, when I have to soak food I put it in a waxed plastic cup with very little water and spin in circles for 5 seconds, that seems to work. Maybe you can try that?
  15. Ya, soaking pellets will reduce the nutritional value, but its better than having a floaty fish.
  16. Um, I don't think Copper & Phosphate Tests are important unless you REALLY want to take care of your fish.
  17. What I would do is: 1 - Get a clay pot 2 - Put it in the tank 3 - Put the roots in 4 - Cover roots with pebbles 5 - Rinse pot and things inside every two weeks or so.
  18. Well, now my tank is planted, kind of. I got a new plant from Pet*smart and I forgot the name. Maybe you guys can identify it and give me the name... ?
  19. Also, lettuce is cellulose, so it usually comes out the other end looking the same.
  20. Hmm... it might just work. Try having it for a week and observe the water day by day to see if it is improving.
  21. Hmm... high nitrates... interesting... Um, I think it's fine as long as you do frequent water changes.
  22. You can exchange the filter and have the water level in the tank higher, that way there is not much surface disturbance.
  23. Usually Pet*Co has those, but they are risky.... just make sure to rinse the plant very well. I think your local fish store that is not a big company will have better plants, but they might be much more expensive.
