  1. I hope to get another tank and no black sand.
  2. I saw a dark spot for mayne a week and then I saw the green for a few days. Is there a way to kill green algae without hurting my plants and fish?
  3. I tried taking it out and I couldn't. Kind of hard trying to hold the fish, be careful not to hurt it and take whatever it is out.
  4. Api freshwater liquid Amonia 0 ppm Nitrite 0 ppm Nitrate 0 ppm Ph 7.6 Last water change at 50% was Tuesday 60 gallon tank 2 aquaclear 70 filters 7 fish (tails included in measurments) 6 inch 5 inch 4.5 inch 3.75 inch 3 inch 2.75 inch 2.5 inch I have an led light which makes green algae possible. I let it grow hoping my goldies would graze on it. It might sound crazy, but I think there is algae growing out of the nostril on one of my fish. It is fine in every other way. Eats, poops, and swims normally. Is there anything I can do? Can I get rid of it safely? Thank you for any and all help.
  5. Poor speckles! Missing one eye and a cataract in the other.
  6. The white is on the inside and it looks round to me. Sorry hard to get a good shot.
  7. Sorry they aren't the best shots. I see a white dot inside the lens. Maybe that is just because it is a calico, but I want to make sure.
  8. Yes the fish is new I got it at the same time as my now one eyed speckles. When I look at the telescope I see it has a white dot almost like a pupil. I would like to be cautious. I have salt in the qt at 1 tsp per gallon. Do you advise I should up the salt? Also do you think I should add prazi now? Will try and post a pic. Thank you so much for all of your help.
  9. Speckles seems do be doing well. I have him/her in a qt tank with the other new fish I purchased. I have added salt and am using an established filter. I am now wondering about the other eye. I am curious if it is possible eye flukes.
  10. I have aquarium salt and also some maracyn plus
  11. Here is a pic of my Speckles. Hope it works!
  12. I got it on my phone now so i am trying to find the thread all so new! Ahh thanks for being so great!
  13. No I didn't quarantine them I know I am not doing things the best way possible. Melafix is what I have on hand. I have a 5 gallon bucket, but nothing larger. Unfortunately my husband isn't the biggest fan of goldfish that is why another tank be it a qt is not likely. I will try to get a pic off of my phone. I am downloading photos on computer, but it is taking forever. Forgive me I am new to this.
  14. Amonia level tank 0.25 Nitrite tank 0 ph tank 7.6 nitrate 30 brand of test is api drops this test is based on the water before I changed it. I had changed 75% of it on Monday. I took my water to the lfs. I did another change today and it was about 75% so the levels are from pre water change. I need to buy a kit! Water temp is room temp of 70 degrees 60 gallon tank that has been running since Jan of this year I have two fluval aquaclear 70 filters running I change the water at least twice a week and at least 50% is changed each time. I now have 7 fish ;/ 2 that are 1 1/2 inches, 2 that are about 3 1/4 inches, 1 that is 3 3/4 inches, 1 that is five inches and the last my orandad is 6 inches including its long tail. I feed my fish 3 times a day. I use repashy super green gel food and new life spectrum goldfish formula pellets. A treat would be kale, bood worms or brine shrimp. I just added the two smallest fish yesterday. they are 1 1/2 inches. A pearlscale and a telescope. I use tetra aquasfe plus water conditioner I have not put in any medications in the tank. I would like to know if melafix would be a good option. I do have plants. Thank you for any help.
