  1. Hey all just want some advise if this fish has eggs in. I havnt seen this before since iv had all my fish for around 5years now. Iv have had babies before. But this one is standing out and its huge and the scales are popping out as you can see in the 2 pics. reagrds Matty
  2. Well i was going to do a post about leaving my fish, so ill just hijack this one .. am going away for 2 nights, will be doing a water change before i go. So i was going to ask if they would be ok for them 2 days without food or buy one of them weekend sticks, only thing about the sticks is that iv seen mixed reviews about them. thanks
  3. Ok ill look into it ..... but Just want to say thanks to all of you anyway that have helped and gave me advice etc, ill make sure ill keep doing it all from now on ...
  4. I didnt say that the FX5 all ready had the foam filter blocks in aswell... So i should just remove the chemi pure and then the filter will only have the bio media and the foam blocks in... Think i should get these to go in then ?? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Fluval-FX5-Fine-Polishing-Pad/dp/B001602BUK/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1399563729&sr=8-2&keywords=fx5 http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hagen-A248-Fluval-Filter-Pad%252c/dp/B000HHO764/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1399563957&sr=8-5&keywords=fx5
  5. 6.8 on using the low PH test.....and 6.0 using the high one... havnt used any baking soda yet, but iv bought some. I guess ill have to add a bit to get it up
  6. just got normal play sand in that i got from work. which has been all treated etc before i put it in.. Been in about 2 years now... as for the filter in my fx5, x2 layers have got the chemi pure elite and the last compartment is full of fluval bio media. I got that prime today (8/5/14) aswell that you recommended so ill use that when i do the next water change:)
  7. That was his tap water. Please test your tank water. 4 drops KH to turn yellow..................12 drops GH to turn green...............test results are currant tank water.... And just a update on the moore it looks alot better now
  8. right got the KH/GH test today. tested the tap water and the KH drops before it goes yellow is 4......and the GH drops before it goes green is 6.....so now we got the right levels i guess its the next step
  9. thanks for the advice ChelseaM just orded some ... still wating on the test kit am looking around tue or weds that ill get that. As for the moore it looks ok still, looks like the whiteness has went down but still got a glazed eye, hope that will go over time once i get this water sorted
  10. when iv done testing its always been in the 7's....but thats with the normal test kit but i havnt used a higher PH level counter before .....iv just orded some of that soda and the kh gh test kit.. soda http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0057Q1PWY/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 test kit http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B003SNCHMA/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  11. Hi yes ill get the new PH with the higher one for you and with a pic of the fish aswell, they just act normal i dont see any behavior when i do the water change. As for the water conditioner i dont have any in, i just thought that ment what media am using,ops lol.. Here is a pic using higher PH one on the left is tank one on right is tap, hold both up to the card the tank one fits more into 6.0 and the tap fits best into 7.4 And the fish today you can see the glaze over its eye, i couldnt get a better pic of the nose part but it has went down alot, its still there but not as big, iv circled it to make it stand out abit better
  12. right i got the kit today and the new results are below the nitrates am going with is 20 as when i hold it up into the light its orange and it does look red when you dont..but it might be 40!!! Iv put in x2 pics anyway one of my tank and one of the tap...... ps i havnt done a water change yet am doing that tomorrow so this has been in the tank for about 3 weeks since last water change.

I have bought some API salt but havnt added that yet since i am going to do a water change soon do i just want some advice what i should do with this fish and the salt first Thanks Matty
  17. Its swimming around like normal and eating normal like the rest it isnt struggling at all so i will be keeping it ..............Well got 2 tanks main one is 4 x 2 x 2 foot, as i got this made for the 5 goldfish i have since they were big for the river reef 94 that i got, but iv just set that back up for now for these 4 little ones untill they get bigger.
  18. So this topic is coming from this old one i done 3 months ago october 2012.... http://www.kokosgold...__fromsearch__1 This pic was when most of the eggs hatched but only 4 come to be the top guns and made it, And now iv took them out of the hatchery which was in my main tank and put them in my river reef 94 that i still had. But there might be a problem with one of them tho, the yellow one, you can see on pic 3 which is marked up, that it doesnt have any bottom fins only the 2 fronts and the top fin hasnt grown... so am not sure if this will never grow now or might come when time comes..?? Here are the pics of them now 3 months on. .....3 By looking at this one, and the other 3 that are in this tank, this might be a red one because of its rear fin, as its in a V shape and the others arnt. As looking at the 2 red ones i have on the right pic and the yellow ones dont have the V shape gap VS
  19. Well good news 4 are swimming around abit then they stop. I've had to wrap the hatchery in filter wool as the holes are bigger than the tiny little fishes... some of them I think are still growing as they are curled up still but I'll see in a get days time I guess..... I'll start a new post on here later on when they are bigger don't want to start one then they die
  20. Hello again my fishies!! Sooo a few weeks after i had made this post i woke up today (20/10/12) and seen alot of small clear balls on the bottom of the sand... As having a baby fish born in my old tank last year. I take it that these might be eggs.. I defo dont have no snails in there so its not them and snail eggs are like gue last time i had snails in my old tank...Also how do i know if they have been fertilised?? Anyway less talk more pics! Just to be on the safe side iv put around 15 in the hachery that i bought last year for my baby fish that was born.. To see if they are fish eggs...
  21. Yeah the one that is doing it the most has the most white little spots on its gills, and a few on the front fins... others that chase it aswell have white spots but not that many.
  22. hahaha nah ... just the normal aquarian flakes and aquarian pellets... with a mix of interpet bloodworms
  23. very nice looking fish ...gz on the plants too
