  1. Thanks! I've been reading this forum for a couple of years and there seems to be a lot of experienced fish lovers on here.

    The fish-in cycle has stressed me out a lot. I'm hoping it will be done sooner than later. I added a little salt to the tank today. I'll just keep an eye on things for now. Barnabas may end up in the penalty box if he won't quit nipping at her. Thanks for your help!


  2. Hi.

    Does anyone know what this bump under Ziva's nostril is? It reminds me of a pimple.  Her "buddy" has been nipping at her sometimes....I have no idea why. Her tail has some rips, which I think her friend did, too. She is a comet and he will give her long tail a nip. They've been together for 5 yrs. As a side note- my tank has been going through a cycle since I upgraded. I thought my fishless cycle was finished, but when I added the fish, ammonia went up. 45 gal, Amm .5-1, NO2 .25-.50. pH 6.2 (always low). I'm wondering about adding meds, but I hate to just start throwing stuff in there. 

    Thanks, I hope someone can help me!




  3. I bought Dot from a feeder tank for a quarter almost 3 yrs ago. I had never owned a fish, and she had a couple of problems, but lived through my inexperience. I knew she needed a bigger tank, so I bought a 20 gallon tank, let it cycle, put in new plants and added a few decorations from the old tank. I put her in and she was fine for the first few days. Then she got lethargic, floated on the bottom, and died. I feel so horrible and so guilty! I am afraid she caught something from the new plants....I didn't know to soak them in a bleach solution. I didn't know that little fish's death would cause me so much heart break and so many tears. Now there are 3 nerite snails living there. I don't know if I'll get another fish.

    Thank  you for listening....I imagine you guys understand how I feel.
