  1. I finally cleaned the filters on sunday. I just cleaned both to get on track to alternate once a month. His tail does not seem to be improving, the ends are starting to split. I admit, I have not been consistant with the prazi treatments. I have been very busy lately with school and a new job. Is there any other treatments that could help his tail? Also marma seems totally fine-- his fins are looking great.
  2. Okay that makes sense. How often should i clean two large cansisters? It would be a pain to unhook the tubing every week.
  3. I have done two but they were not consistant. I think it was at 3%. Is there any way i could just add salt to the tank without it being harmful to val? Maybe 0.1%?
  4. Thank you so much both of you! I have never had this happen before, so this condition is new to me!

Enlarged veins, frayed fins+i think fungus * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? No Hi! Valentino has a fraying caudal fin with whitening at the end. It is only in one area but his veins are dialated. I have been doing salt dips instead of leaving salt in the tank due to val having dropsy previously. He has never relapsed since the original time. I have not cleaned my filters in 5 months, that may be part of the problem. I also added a large plastic hollow log to the tank about 2-3 weeks ago. It has an airstone inside though. Marmalade is not having any problems though other than boyancy problems, but he has always been like that. I will include pics in a sec.
  7. We left friday morning at 2 am. I didnt add back the media fearing that something would be in it. I am not sure how they are but when we left they were good and calm.
  8. Also could i add back the media is used in qt?
  9. Val is in the main tank currently. He is darting a ton and is very jerky. He hides often. I have prazi in the tank and am trying to do daily salt dips on him. There are also a ton of small white worms in the tank too. The jerking looks like he is trying to get them off. I leave tomorrow morning.
  10. Ok! Should i resume mm's after we get back?
  11. I did put cycled media in an AC 50 its a 10 gallon tub. He is doing really good no more bottom sitting, swimming around normally. That is what i thought too, that the main tank would be better. I will do a 100% waterchange the night before. Hopefully they will be ok. How many times should i feed them if i have the fishmate?
  12. Im leaving soon so i just want to get things squared away. Can i leave marmalade in his qt tank for 10 days?
  13. Also just a few more questions:) Can i go 10 days without a waterchange on the qt tank? Val: In main tank. I just took all my plants out since they always have brown algae on them and i started to remove the gravel. I removed 50% yesterday. These small thin white worms were swimming everywhere.. I took a photo. Val also seems to dart a lot but maybe he does that because i changed his environment so rapidly.
  14. How many pellets should i feed him if he weighs 47 grams?
