  2. Hello everyone [emoji847] My Anubis has some brown spots. So far it's on three of them. Not sure how long it's been there for sorry. Just wondering what it could be? Tank info: 6ft x 18in x 18in 7 big fat goldfish 1 apple snail Substrate is iron sand and fluvel sanctum Ammonia 0 Nitrite 0 Nitrate 5 PH 7.2 kH 3 drops (API kit) GH Unknown sorry, droplet thingy out of date [emoji24] Water temp is 24 degrees Celsius Have been using flourish excel as recommended on the bottle. Lights are on 4 hrs a day. No idea what they are exactly. One is a T8 and one is LED. (See pictures) I've kinda just been winging it this far. There has been a bit of a fuzzy algae issue lately. I think I have it under control now after adjusting the filter flow, changing the lights to 4 hrs. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. That's Charlie. He was a black Moore... Then he grew a wen... Then his eyes changed. No idea where that stunning tail came from! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Charlie is THE awesome-est fish ever. I would have never dreamed of such a transformation! I need a shock-fall-over-thud emoticon for this guy! I am in love! What a great job you do for your fish! What a compliment [emoji7] He is a special fish isn't he [emoji1] it's been fun and scary why hung him change. The wen was of concern when it began changing... And the eyes... Well I thought they were infected [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23][emoji23][emoji848][emoji848][emoji848][emoji848] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  7. Thank you [emoji2] It's 6ftx18inx18in a little shorter than most tanks that size. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  17. After some research and help from Kokos my algae issue is getting better! I changed the way the outlet hosed move the water around, moved the bubbles to the dead zones, and started adding some c02. I have also filled out the bare areas with more plants, hoping I can balance the extra nutrients/lack of c02. After 3 days the algae is getting easier to rub off the plant leaves and white rocks, the algae on the back wall is thinner (I'm a bit sad about that) Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  18. Eeeep I'll be careful. Thanks for the heads up. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  20. Do you mean a liquid co2? If so, leave the plants where they are. What you can do is put a little bit in a syringe, stick the syringe underwater and squirt it over the affected areas (you can do the same for hydrogen peroxide - just remove the fish beforehand). This will kill algae, perhaps not as quickly, but it works too (I've done it a handful of times). The leaves may melt depending on the plant species, but it comes back healthy. Yes liquid c02. Okay I'll try that tomorrow [emoji6][emoji6] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  21. I think I have all the info I need from that article. Thanks again Dan [emoji108] I have re positioned my outlet hoses for my filters and bubble stones to provide maximum flow and surface agitation without pushing my fish around too much. I have also begun using some c02 in a bottle. I tried to uproot my plants however they are well rooted so I do not want to pull them just yet. I rubbed as much algae off the leaves as possible. I'll give it a week and see if the algae growth slows down at all. Thanks everyone for your help, I'll post a pic in a week . Hopefully it will look better [emoji13] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
