  1. Hi guys - has any of you ever used Fungus Cure to treat excessive body slime? Is it a safe treatment?
  2. They are soooo cute!! My very last baby, Lucky, was tiny for a very long time. I was actually convinced that he is a runt. I even nicknamed him Bonsai. And then, suddenly, he nearly tripled in size and caught up with everyone else in size. So who knows, maybe a growth spurt is just around the corner for your guys, too
  3. I am very happy to report that Miss Zuzanna is back to her perky self. I have no clue what was wrong with her but she is clearly happy now.
  4. Hi CourtneyandThunder I read the article - are you referring to nitrite poisoning? If so, then it is not very likely as water in the tank is being tested daily, if not twice a day (what can I say.... My dad feels very responsible for the tank gang.... Or feeling extremely bored as he has been on sick leave for month now ). As for the photo, unfortunately I am not able to provide it as I am currently away with work and my parents are looking after the tank gang. I saw Zuzanna on FaceTime and she seems to be doing much better. As a matter of fact, she was de only one active while the rest was "napping". I will see her again in about 1 hour. As for her tummy, my mum reported it looks better today. Fingers crossed she continues to improve. I am begging to think she might have "overheard" our conversation about separating her and she has decided that bottomsitting is not cool at all
  5. Hi Susanne Don't be surprise if I make appearance in LOTP
  6. Thank you so much for the check list, Koko I am hopeless with Tapatalk and I cannot find anything while using it. Hi Jared She has had peas twice in a raw; and yesterday my mum gave her a grain of Epsom in her food. She doesn't seem bloated at all. Medication: Metronidazole; Kanaplex, Triple Sulfa; Furan 2 and Bifuran; Neoplex, If she needs to be in QT then I will speak to my parents about setting up one for her. I admit, they won't be happy about it but realistically I don't see a way of treating her in the main tank.
  7. Hi guys - I haven't been here for a while and I hope you and your water pups are all fine. I am worried about Zuza. So far she has been in good health (she is 2 years old), except for occasional issues with SB. But for the last 4 days she has been bottomsitting pretty much non stop. She doesn't get excited when she sees me or my parents but she eats ok. She is not really clamping, and she doesn't have any other symptoms (though her belly is red from sitting). I am baffled as to what may be wrong with her. Any suggestions regarding appropriate course of action? Ammonia: 0ppm Nitrite: 0ppm Nitrate: 15ppm Ph: 8 Recent treatment: 6 rounds of prazi throughout November and December 2014. Metronidazole added at some point as everyone in tank reacted to Prazi. In February we lost Bandit - he was sick since September; his symptoms were similar - bottomsitting and gasping.
  8. Beautiful tank, Isa! And your fish are gorgeous!
  9. I am slowly loosing hope with Bandit. I just watched him on Skype and he is not doing well. Last week I started him on Medigold as he started deteriorating rapidly - almost no control over swimming, sinking, spitting out all the food, bloody tail, clamping. He started looking much better 48 hrs after first dose of Medigold. Today is Day 7 and he is getting worse again. This is also 3rd round of Prazi.
  10. Poor girl! Fingers crossed she recovers quickly! My parents are doing the best. Within these past weeks they learnt which behaviours are normal and which are not. They noticed deterioration in Bandits health and called me immediately. I got back home yesterday and noticed few more things. I need to have an action plan in place as I will be leaving in two days time
  11. Thank you, Kat. I am at my wits end with him. Hope Big Red is doing better x
  12. Hi Jared - he was on MMs for 30 days because he hasn't fully recovered when he approached 14th day of treatment. Only around day 20th he seemed to be back to normal. I really don't like the way he acts. He is bottom sitting, has hard time swimming, he eats but a lot of it is spitter out, his tail is ripped in couple of places and red veins are prominent again. Two other fish are pouty, too, but no one is as severely affected as him.
  13. Thank you, Susanne. I just wish I knew how to help him
  14. Ok, I have a problem with Bandit again. It makes it all worse that I am not physically with him right now so I can only relay on Skype and my mums reports. Water: - Ammonia 0 ppm Nitrite 0 ppm Nitrate 15 ppm Ph 8 Behaviour: He is on/off bottom sitting but excited when someone get close to the tank. He is hungry but keep spitting up his food. It started about 4 days ago. He finished his course of MMs on Sunday (30 days). When I was watching him on Skype I have noticed that he is clamping when he swims. He does this weird thing: swims quickly to the surface gets air, then goes down and blows bubbles. I have only completed two rounds of Prazi with him. I just don't know what's wrong with him
  15. Thank you so much, guys - you are all so wonderful xxxxxxx
  16. Oh my gosh, that would be wonderful, Lis! I just weighted this little guy - he is 10 grams. If you could supply me with 14 days treatment that would be amazing. I will bring back more when I go home next week.
  17. Hi guys; I urgently need a help with medication for a fish at work. I have been green green light to treat it as well upgrade the fish living quarters from a ball to 60 litres tank. I know it's not ideal for to goldfish but it's definitely better than 7 litres bowl. I don't have my own supplies and won't be able to bring them till next week. I found in a store some salt and Waterlife Flukes treatment. It's better than nothing. But I do feel that we will need antibiotics and even if I ask my parents to post the meds, I fear they will arrive to late. Does anyone of you have some spare Metro Meds or Metronidazole? I will gladly pay for it or offer new one in exchange.
  18. Why do I always miss raffles and give aways??
  19. I am happy to report that things calmed down. After that spike, big Wc and adding bacteria, nitrite went down to 0.25 the very next day, then down to 0ppm. The fish returned to the main tank on the 2nd day. Ammonia and Nitrite stayed at 0ppm. Then started raising again. My parents did 100% Wc and added bacteria again. As I returned home the following day I discovered that the filter was barely functioning (clogged with sand). I cleaned the filter and added more bacteria. Today is day 5 and all parameters are at 0ppm
  20. I really hope so, Kat! Just spoke with my parents - they say fish are fine in a container although not particularly happy because of fasting. Chloe has a lot to "say" about it she keeps spitting or splashing water. Her dorsal is up so I doubt it's stress related (when she is upset she hides in a corner facing away from the front of the tank). Also, in the main tank the nitrite level fell from 5ppm to 0.25ppm. I will have ammonia reading later on today.
  21. Where do I get Ammonia from, DP? If I add it at this stage, would it help?
