  9. Today... Ammonia: 0ppm Nitrite: 2.0ppm Nitrate: 40ppm
  10. Nawwww adorable!! He's such a good looking lil' finster ^_^
  11. Just did a test now and the results are - Ammonia: 0.25ppm Nitrite: 2.0ppm Nitrate: 20ppm Time for another water change?
  12. Hi guys and gals, I'm doing a fishless cycle in my 100L tank. As I had an issue getting a hold of some pure ammonia, I opted to put a teaspoon of fish food in the tank for 5 days as I'd been advised to do to get the ammonia level up. Once the ammonia level was at 4.0 I took the food out. At this stage my readings are as follows: Ammonia: 2.0ppm Nitrite: 5.0ppm Nitrate: 80ppm It was only 5 days ago that I even saw the slightest sign of nitrites and I have been doing this cycle for 28 days now. And Nitrates have seemed to have popped out of no where - my reading for Nitrate was 0 only 3 days ago. According to the http://www.kokosgoldfish.com/FishlessCycle.html page, my readings seem a little unusual. Or are they? (I've never done this before) My question is, essentially, should I do a water change now or what do I do? Thanks =)
  13. Really well thanks, you can barely tell he hurt himself now. It's healing up very nicely. Thank you so much =) Looks like he will be absolutely fine. It's healing fast and quite well.
  14. Ok, sure thing Thanks again!
  15. Yeah it's cycled, got media from his previous tank =) Some pure salt and 2x 30% water changes during the week it is!! Thank you
  16. I'm not sure but I think my fish (Cosmos) may have hurt himself somehow. I saw this red scale/wound on his body yesterday and today it's worse/ bigger. I'm really concerned about him. He suffers Swim Bladder Disorder and I'm currently trying to treat him for it (if I can). He is 8 years old! Here is a video so you can also see what I mean - http://s28.beta.phot...swound.mp4.html It's in slow motion to try and capture as much as I could. Test Results for the Following: * Ammonia Level (Tank): 0 * Nitrite Level (Tank): 0 * Nitrate level (Tank): 5ppm * Ammonia Level (Tap): 0.25ppm * Nitrite Level (Tap): 0ppm * Nitrate level (Tap): 0ppm * Ph Level, (Tank): 7.5 * Ph Level, (Tap): 8.0 Other Required Info: * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? API master, drops * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? Unsure, it's the one that comes with the "70L Blue Planet Classic" Aquarium * What kind of water additives or conditioners? API Stress coat * Water temperature? 25 Celsius / 77 Fahrenheit * How often do you change the water and how much? changed the water once so far (had the setup for only a week) Planning on keeping an eye on Nitrates to know how often to do them. * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? Yesterday, 20% * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? 70L / 18.5gals * How many fish in the tank and their size? 1, unsure of exact size but estimating 11-12cm from mouth to tail tip * What do you feed your fish and how often? a variety of things, blood worms, peas, pelits, vegetables * Any new fish added to the tank? No * Any medications added to the tank? One dose of API Melafix (yesterday) * List previous issues experienced - Swim bladder issues * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? Open Wound * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? Nill * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. The tank is fairly new - it's been running for a week. He was transferred from another tank into this one. This tank has been treated with StressCoat and the medication has only been one dose of API Melafix (yesterday). From what I understand my fish was treated with Melafix once before as well.
  17. Cool thanks! I thought he was a ryukin with a single tail like the Sabao but they do have the flowing tail don't they. Thank you!! I think his body shape is more fantail than ryukin, so yeah I would call him a nymph rather than a tamasaba (sabao). He's very unique! I bet you're so happy to have him with you at your place now! Awesome, good to know! Thanks for that Oh I am very happy to have him here HAHA! awesome glad you enjoyed it! Thanks heaps!!
