  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!

Cant exactly remember--but doing prazi treatment now with salt dips * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? 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?
  15. I gave him 12 pellets for his first feeding. How many should i give him per day? He weighs 47 grams
  16. Ok thank you! Im assuming i should leave him in qt but can that qt go 10 days without a waterchange?
  17. Well today and yesterday marmalade hasnt been doing well. He is clamped and sitting in the corners to rarely get up to swim to another one. He is very bloated but i dont think pineconed yet. His pectoral fin has a tinge of black on it. This fish has had problems since i got him. He is gasping and breathing heavily while bottom sitting. I have to leave next friday but dont know what to do. I would feel horrible for leaving him like this.
  18. His fin is a ton better! He is using it normally and swimming around normally. I still have to get salt i have sports every day and its hard to get around sometimes! I can just add prazi tomorrow by itself but when i get salt i will add that to marmalades tank ASAP. We leave for christmas break next friday and are gone for 10 days. I just bought the fishmate f14 so hopefully they will be ok ;/
  19. Ok will do. How many rounds fo you suggest? Do*
  20. Ok should i do that in the qt tank? Or put him back in with val in the main tank? Im thinking separate since val has had dropsy.
  21. umm I think i prazied 2 months ago?? i cant exactly remember. I absolutely hate plants that require gravel and i think i am going to remove all the plants. I just am imagining all the gunk that is in the gravel..... eww
  22. Yup- underneath seems to be popping out.. sorry not the best

Added 0.1% salt yesterday * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus?Swollen, red pectoral joint * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, Bottom sitting a tad I was looking at marmalade yesterday and saw that he was not using his right pectoral fin, it is red and swollen and a couple of scales right behind that area were raised but today they went away. There is no longer any salt or meds in the tank just clean water. This is the fish with buoyancy issues
  24. Thank you! I have been super busy lately but Chelsea's advice and put a piece of boiled kale, parsley, and spinach on a clip. They wouldent eat it unless it was boiled. He seems a ton better. Maybe i just need to keep a steady supply of leafy greens in his diet every day.
