  1. I got my new toy in today. Bought from Tasyworms of course . I love it! Is sooo amazing ! As much as I love it, I have a couple of quick questions I was hoping someone could answer for me: 1. Where can I get filter media other than online, and how often do I have to change it? 2. Will the current bother the fish? If so, is there a way I can cut it down? Right now I have an end of the spray bar open to try and cut down the pressure. 3. Does the Eheim give me enough GPH (pump output is 263 GPH and the filter circulation is at 208 GPH) to remove my HOB (biowheel 350GPH) or should I keep both? I ask because I heard somewhere that canister filters GPH were a little different. It's a 55 gallon tank with two 4" goldfish. Thanks everyone!!!
  2. Ok, So I was just able to pick up the salt today for him... Do I need to put a filter in the 10 gallon with him?
  3. I like all your little Pokemon lol! Thanks! Gotta catch 'em all right?
  4. I guess its time for me to have to learn ! So for the first tank that I add the solution to, would a 5 gallon bucket work? I'll probably use fresh water even though my tanks nitrates are pretty low. I just figure since the PH (Theirs a to on buffer in out water out here lol) is the same it'd be ok. Could I put him into a 10 gallon aquarium for his recovery period? Should I use the aquarium water for this tank? Thanks for all of your help! He's not going to like this lol!
  5. Sure thing! Anything to help a friend and sick fishy in need!
  6. Oh good! I was worried it was electrocution or chlorine burns! Whew! I have never had to do a salt dip before... How would I go about doing it? It sounds a little scary . Will that be ok with the Prazi?
  7. It's quite alright . The support is super helpful on its own No, I haven't added anything other than the Prazi lately... I wonder if its possible that he has some kind of allergy to the Prazi?
  8. I know goldfish connection has some for a pretty good price. He might be able to get you some pretty quick. I'm having to feed my little guy Klaus some too, but I can send you what I have left if you want . Today is his last day on them
  9. Here's a video of him as well: Sorry that the quality is a little grainy
  10. Thank you so much hun! If its not one thing, its another with this little guy :
  11. I'm so happy to hear that Vanille is doing better! You are such an amazing person to go to such lengths for her . I'm hoping for her continued success! I'm guessing Vanille got her name from the ditzy vanille from FF?

I already have one thread up about this little guy, but I'm starting a new one on his new symptoms. As of now, he is covered in little burn looking things all over his body. They are black dots and streaks that are sprinkled all over him. The most obvious ones are on his mouth, gill plates, and fins. He also has a large patch of slime coat on the top of his head. There are also a couple of white dots on his left side under the dorsal. I'm not sure if I can get a clear shot of these dots with the low quality camera that I have . The only new thing that I have been doing/done is the use of a Python water changer, a new plant light, and Priming the entire tank instead of individual buckets. I have also been using the water heater in the house to get the temp the same as the tank. My thoughts are that even though I pour the new water on the side of the tank that I had primed, I wonder if he had swam under the new water and got burned by the chlorine or something? My moor hasn't shown signs of any of what he's dealing with.. Is there anything I can do for him? He looks terrible Here you can see the black spots on his mouth, gill plates, and fins. Also, you can see the slime coat spot on the top of his head:
  13. Aww my ruykin Klaus has the same problem as Wakka. He tumbles over all of the time... They are both so pretty
  14. He is adorable! I love how active he is
  15. That is too cool! I was thinking about getting a betta... I think I have to keep my eyes open for one of them now
  16. Thank you! I'll try and feed her some garlic. I might get some really nasty faces from her though lol.
  17. Oh good! Thank you! I just saw that pop up today.. I was afraid it was some sort of mutated hole in the head disease for wenless fish lol. Its been one of those weeks lol Is there anything in particular I should keep an eye out for?
  18. That makes sense I've seen both happen with him. I'm just happy I remembered to add the updates! I circled the area on this picture And here its in the same spot
  19. It occured to me that I should probably update with my water prams too.. ammonia: 0ppm nitrite: 0ppm nitrate: 5-10ppm Ph: 7.5 All is the same as the tap. I did get a Python in yesterday, and I have been using it instead of the the buckets... I have been adding the Prime straight to the tank (enough for the entire tank) and adding the water. I used to add it to the buckets individually to treat for the tank. The only other thing I have been doing differently is using the hot water as well as the cold to get the new water about the same temp. When I used the buckets I let them sit in the sun by the window until they were room temp. Edit: Thank you! I'll get some pictures right away! I fed him a pea earlier and when I went back to check on him there was a ton of poo in the corner. I could tell it was his, since my moor is eating repashy still lol. I fed him a little more of the MM's a minute ago, and he seemed to get them down with no problem
  20. Thank you so much ! He's been a struggle since I got him. He still manages to get sick, even with good water prams lol!
  21. Hi again, So I have a few updates about my ruy Klaus: the white spots I mentioned earlier are gone. I wasn't even able to catch them on camera. This morning when I went to feed him I noticed certain areas on him that looked like healing burns. He had the black on his mouth, on both sides of the top of his tail, a little on his front fins, and scattared about his body. I wondered if he could have smacked into the heater when I wasn't looking, but I wonder with the 'burns' being on both of his sides. He was being a little picky about eating too. He left two pieces of the MM's untouched. Before his water change for the Prazi (the third treatment) today, he was swimming mostly normally and pretty active: http://s1067.beta.photobucket.com/user/amarjenhoff/media/VIDEO0031_zps7aa25153.mp4.html You can see the 'burns' on him, and the red streaks in his tail since he's been sick. After the WC he has been bottom sitting, and what bothers me the most is that he now has a pit that has formed on his head. The video's are bad quality, but you can kind of see it on his right side at about 29s. Its the dark spot on his head... http://s1067.beta.photobucket.com/user/amarjenhoff/media/VIDEO0033_zpsbf076684.mp4.html I'm really lost and worried

Currently doing a Prazi treatment and MM's for one fish * List previous issues experienced (dropsy, SBD, etc.) the fish in question has had dropsy * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? She's a black fish, so I'm unable to see any streaking, so nothing really on the fish. However, she has been having some very long white poops again. * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? She's acting fine as far as I have seen. She just kind of floats mid tank if I'm not directly in the room, but picks when she sees me. * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. She was treated with Epson salt when she had dropsy, Prazi for a few cycles ( I don't remember how many, but it was for the full MM cycle), and 14 days of MM's and 14 of Jump Start. As of now, the entire tank is being treated with Prazi for my other fish. Today was the third addition of Prazi. * You can really help us to identify with the concern more accurately if you post some pictures and a short video. Hi again guys! Its been an uphill battle with the fish lately... So Dexy, my moor is question has been having long white poops again, but she's acting normal other wise.. It doesn't look to me like it has any egg zigzags, just more solid white with clear ends. Ever since her dropsy she's had kind of weird poo though. It's usually either long and clear with a little bit of green in the center from the repashy, or the normal green chunks. Other times its like a clear flaky stuff. Here's a video of what I saw today: http://s1067.beta.photobucket.com/user/amarjenhoff/media/VIDEO0030_zpsc1e08993.mp4.html It's really hard to see from the video, but I took an over head to make sure she isn't pineconing again: http://s1067.beta.photobucket.com/user/amarjenhoff/media/VIDEO0028_zps39c52e66.mp4.html Thanks again everyone! I hope I'm just over reacting!
  23. If you ever decide to import some more tosakin's let me know! They are soo pretty!
