  1. Hi guys ! I finally did it haha! I have a 75 gallon in my garage waiting to get set up :). I have been so busy with work and school and haven't had time. Now that this semester is over, I should be able to get this done! I painted the back black and just need to touch up a few spots before I set it up fully. I also need to wash 45 pounds of sand I am NOT looking forward to that. I will be moving my single tail goldfish and oranda into it from my 55. I'll make sure to post pictures once it is all set up! I am still having a weird issue with my single tail, so I am gonna bump her previous thread up in D&D Land haha.
  2. I do apologize, I do not have much to offer other than if the babies are having swim bladder issues with feeding, I would stay away from the flakes so they aren't gasping at the top to eat them. You can also try pre-soaking the pellets for 30-60 seconds to see if that helps as well. I am very out of practice with QT procedures and medication uses haha. You are in great hands here though!
  3. Awesome! Thank you is it a daily dose or do I dose it once and let it run for a week?
  4. Okay, awesome! I looked at my bottle on the pictures from amazon and it’s 500 gallons per 1TSP. I figured I would just use 1/8 a TSP and not need to dilute it since that would treat 62.5 gallons. That should be good. The bottle says it can be doses 10x the recommended dose and still be safe thank you so much for all of the information!! When I get home and start treatment, how long should I do it for? And out of curiosity does this treat ich? My fish don’t have it, just curious hahaha
  5. I’m kinda lost 😅😅 so I put 1/4 TSP into 8 ounces of water and then use 2 ounces of that solution per 25 gallons of water?
  6. Hi! It has been so hectic. I’ve been working 50ish hours a week 6 days a week haha. I went ahead and ordered the dimillin that I linked. It sadly won’t be here until the 14th at the earliest. Im just going to keep up with water changes while I wait. How should I go about diluting it and what should I use to dilute it? Chemistry and I were not good friends so dilution calculations aren’t my strong suit hahahaha
  7. Okay! I’ll see how the rest of the metro treatment is and if needed I’ll get the dimillin
  8. Okay! Should I order that? I wouldn’t be sure how to dose it. I guess 1/10 of a teaspoon? Should I wait to see how the metro does over the next few days do you think?
  9. I can’t seem to find it online. All I found was one that treats 500 gallons per teaspoon for ponds. Dimilin-X Koi & Goldfish Treatment: Anchor Worm Fish Lice Flukes diflubenzuron https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01IW8YT3A/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_bi95Eb6VJ0HCF I’ll keep up with the metro and see how they do for the time being. Should I salt at .1% maybe?
  10. She didn’t handle the first salt dip I did too well when I treated with them prazipro before the Paragaurd and metro. Other than bottom sitting from time to time she appears to be acting normal. My baby oranda like to sit in the plants but they both come out almost immediately for food. I’m so confused as to what they are as well. From what I see in person it looks like fluke irritation form what I’ve seen in the past.
  11. i believe we did about 8 days of the Paraguard and i believe today was day 6 of metro. I forgot to log the first day.
  12. Hi! I’m so sorry for touch a delayed response. I was waiting for the meds in the mail and I have a new job now. It’s been hectic here haha. Today is day 5 I believe (dosing every other day) and she’s still bottom sitting. No ulcers, just the red spots still and bottom sitting.
  13. So far I’m not really seeing any kind of improvements and she’s still bottom sitting intermittently
  14. Hi guys! I hope everyone is well and staying safe! it’s been a while since I made a tank post. I still have my 55 gallon. I just got a new light for it. It’s a fluval LED. I can control it from my phone. It’s super cool!
