  10. i posted a while ago about my moor sitting but didn't get much of a response, he was sitting now and then in the shop when i bought him but was quite active but now is rooted to the bottom. i have tried esha 2000,adding salt to the tank and feeding peas but no joy. tank water is good and regularly changed,other fish are fine. he was having white stringy poo's also. he seems to try and swim but crashes to the floor,i thought he might be badly constipated? anyone got any ideas?
  11. is it against site rules to put links? did you read it? i was just interested in the treating with iodine and using a sealer,i've never heard of sealer before myself but i'm pretty new to diseases. the esha has been in the tank 2 days today,it has a dropper built in and a chart telling you how much to use,i've used it before and had no adverse effects. i treat for the 3rd day tomorrow then its complete. may have to do salt baths if it still looks bad. are you recommending leaving him in a salt bath?
  12. so you don't think esha will help? wouldn't the change of water conditions cause more stress if i put him in a bucket? what do you think of this? [DNAlex removed link]
  13. all the injuries happened over night which is why i was quite certain they were from being wedged in bog wood. the tank water quality is good. tested regularly and 80% water changes a week. i've put some esha 2000 in to see if helps
  14. i woke up a week odd ago and my choo had damaged himself? i'm thinking he's got weded into some wood or something? he's got damage to his back and gill. is there anything i can do to aid recovery? http://i534.photobucket.com/albums/ee ... /P1000533_zpsb448b9a0.jpg http://i534.photobucket.com/albums/ee ... /P1000535_zps3a525b8b.jpg most of the gill damage seems to be healing appart from the bottom one which looks very red like meat and the back. he's started bottom sitting lately,he's eating and swimming mostly
  15. no ,its the fin. spending a lot of time upside down now. tried peas but no joy
  16. tap ph is the same as tank. 7.4
  17. http://i534.photobucket.com/albums/ee347/kevb123/P1000517_zpse97c644a.jpg http://i534.photobucket.com/albums/ee347/kevb123/P1000516_zpsf0bc17df.jpg for helen,the mark on her tummy was just a gold scale
  18. had a closer inspection and theres a chunk missing out of 1 of the 2 tiny fins in between the tails. think she must be the only girl as the others tend to chase her now and again. and may have nipped it.
  19. yes the second 2 pics. its weird usually fin rot what i've seen is white this is like flesh coloured. ps. defo not poop lol
  20. i used to feed hikari sinking pellets a while ago but stopped as they caused floaty probs but have started again as i was worried they weren't getting enough protien from soilent green and veg and frozen daphnia and bloodworm
  21. if you pause the vid on 26 you can see the mark on tail,sorry it's really hard to get a pic or clear as its in between the 2 tails. yea he's been floating tail up for a few days. am i feeding too much? i was putting more food in for the big moors but they all get a bit of it.
