  1. :( things aren't looking good :( she's all bent, scales raised, lying on her side I give her another hour What can I do for norton to make sure he doesn't get the same thing?
  2. Really? That would be great! Thanks Alex Yep that's fine
  3. Oh, alrighty. I do not have any, unfortunately. Should I order some for her?
  4. Alright sounds good! Thanks Alex, I'll keep you posted on how she looks tomorrow!
  5. Dan!! Hi!Yeah, it's a bummer, hopefully she's feeling better soon!
  6. Water chance done! Wallie is still bottom sitting
  7. I've just put them both in a bucket so I can do the water change, and wallie looks fine, but Norton has a big red patch on his tail and a very small split in one of his fins. I've never noticed before because he is so orange! wallie bottom sitting both in the bucket norton's redness- excuse the flash!
  8. Ammonia: 0 Nitrite: 0 Nitrate: 20 Tank pH: 7.6 Tap pH: 7.6
  9. Thanks Heidi! Me too Sounds good, fang. I'll try my best! That's food for both of them, not for one. I soak them before feeding so air shouldn't be a problem, and they always miss the small ones! Heading home now so I'll post the params in 45mins to hour Should I add salt if params are good?
  10. No, she isn't eating either. I forgot to mention that! Hey fang!! I use flourish occasionally, maybe once every two or three weeks? really only when I remember. I used it last water change, about 1/3 of a capful I feed about 12-15 pieces, they're the big omega one pellets Is it possible to clean sand? uh oh I clean the filter media about once a month, it's due for a cleaning today I believe. Yes, the second I get home I will post some pictures for you Thanks for your help!
  11. Hello! I need some help with wallie, my chunky female fantail. I did a water change two days ago, and she has since been bottom sitting. I was very busy for a couple days before yesterday, and so I am not sure if she was acting strangely before the change or not. No physical signs of an injury or anything, she's just sitting there in the corner. Test Results for the Following: * Ammonia Level(Tank) * Nitrite Level(Tank) * Nitrate level(Tank) * Ammonia Level(Tap) * Nitrite Level(Tap) * Nitrate level(Tap) * Ph Level, Tank * Ph Level, Tap Other Required Info: * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? API Master test kit. * Water temperature? * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? 45 gallons, probably about a year * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? 2 AC70s, no carbon * How often do you change the water and how much? Once a week, 75-80% * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? Two days ago, 75% * How many fish in the tank and their size? Two fish, a ryukin and an oranda, each 2.5 -3 inches without their tails. * What kind of water additives or conditioners? Prime &flourish * What do you feed your fish and how often? Omega one once daily * Any new fish added to the tank? No * Any medications added to the tank? No * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. 8 rounds prazi a bit less than a year ago * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? No * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? Bottom sitting I don't have temp or water info at the moment because I'm at school, but I get home at 3 and will test them then! Sorry I just wanted to get this up asap before I forgot. More info later, I promise! Thanks, Mandie
  12. seachem flourish is good Swords are considered heavy root feeders, meaning that they get nutrients most easily through their root system (as opposed to the water column), so a nutrient rich substrate will be beneficial to them. Not saying liquid ferts like flourish won't be beneficial, but I think the root tabs are more crucial for the swords in particular particularly with an inert substrate like TMS Gotcha! Thanks! Thanks soupmonster
  13. Jess- Oh really? That's interesting. Thanks for the info Thank you Lisa!! Anyone know if seachem flourish is a good fertilizer?
  14. Thank you guys!! Thanks Jess! I made the post in the car and didn't have my receipt with me, so I forgot what they're called. Here are some better pictures, the last was with my phone! Nice to see you guys too! I'm super busy these days. The good kind of busy though I think I'm going to grab some Flourish fertilizer tomorrow, I had root tabs before, but with all these plants, I want to make sure I give them all the nutrients they need! Planting these guys was a LOT of work!!
  15. I put Wallace and norton together in my new-ish 45g a couple weeks ago! they seem to like eachother, and norton seems to be a little frisky.. the plants are anubias, swords, and...uh..let me get back to you on the tall grassy ones. I'm sure somebody knows. putting these into such a deep tank was by easy!! thanks for looking!
  16. Oh no..we're out of prazi ( I need to order some more, but it won't be here for a few days and my mom is threatening to dump Wallie in norton's tank while I'm at school! Can I put them together and do one last round of prazi with them in the same tank?
  17. I'm home now! wallie does seem to be really chubby...but not misshapen. I can't tell it she's chubbier than usual though because it might just be that since my mom told me that in advance I was expecting it? does that make sense?
  18. okay! thanks. I haven't been home all day, my mom just told me that wallie is REALLY fat and misshapen looking?? ....eggs maybe??
  19. hmmm...so I should be done with Wallace's qt by now but I keep forgetting to add prazi after water changes and I'm still only on round two!! Morton's water is sooooo cloudy...I'm going to add carbon today and see if that does the trick!
