  1. I have started on the Prazi and salt program but a new development, he seems to have trouble staying horizontal when swimming is this still what you thought, gill flukes? The gills don't seem inflamed or abnormal but couldn't get a decent picture Thanks
  2. To be honest i dont know if this is normal as I generally don't check as he has been perfectly healthy, the PH out the tap is about 7.4/7.6. I shall try and get a picture tomorrow but I do have half a bottle of PraziPro if needed. Thanks for all the info Shakaho much appreciated Graeme
  3. Okay it all just happened over the past 2 days he was perfectly happy then all of a sudden stopped moving as much, I do have some salt I think so shall put some of that in. Really I always that it was a comet ha thanks!

  6. Hey everybody, I've acquired a new tank as the one I've got isn't big enough to keep my comet goldfish. The new one I've got is 14 Gallons (about 50 Litres) is there any other small fish I could add as well as my comet GF?? He's only about 3" and had him for about 8 months. Thanks, Graeme
  7. No he doesnt rub up against ornaments, he seems better today but havent really done anything other than changed 50% water but I had done that before. Doesnt sit at the bottom or suck air at the top. Also I bought some food pellets they are pretty small will he be able to find them in amonst the gravel? Only thing i really noticed is his gills dont open very often.
  8. Thanks very much for all the replies! I am planning on getting a bigger tank just need some $$ before I can. The filter is just one that came with the tank so probably isnt brilliant. I will start with doing bigger water changes as of today! He normally just sits about have way up the tank and moves about slowing but if I go here him with a net or anything he does move pretty fast but he used to fly about all day long. I havent been feeding him, ever couple of days i would put a couple of flakes in but they werent getting eaten. Only have 1 small plant and Nitrate came back on the strips as 0-10. Could it be hes just getting to big for the tank? **I will try and get a video but quite dark now may wait till tomorrow**

  10. Kinda looks like he keeps floating to the top but can quite easily swim back down and around his tank
  11. Ok so after the got my API test kit there is only between 0-0.25 ppm of ammonia, trace amounts of Nitrate, PH level of 7.5. I have had the salt in there as I was told it was good to have a little in the tank to make them less stressed. Hes still not eating...
  12. Thanks All I add is Cycle and Aqua Plus then heat it up to tempature and add the water....? I assume I will neeed a testing kit to check ammoina levels? I very much doubt they will test it for free they are not as helpful as folks from the states but I will go and get an ammonia kit tomorrow and ask at the same time! The salt has been in their for about a month now.. I just read the box for the salt as it does say "pH buffer" so that might be changing the pH level in the tank compaired to the tap...? Thanks
