  1. Yeah I know. It's the only tank I have, and I can't upgrade. I got these fish as presents. I'll try to. My petstores are different. I live in a different country and there are no such things as Metro. I can find yellow powder, if that's an antibiotic

    No, they are not bottom sitting. They are eating happily and swimming around.

  2. Hii. Finally had 15 posts! What a relief. Anyways,

    My two Ryukins currently have :

    White poop. They're thick and look like rice!

    Thick poop.

    Thin poop.

    Long poop.

    One of the Ryukins are having a swollen anus.

    They're conditions had improved as I have been treating with BeFuran. I've started it for 4 days. (5 days on 12/6/2014). I do NOT have Aquarium Salt. My Aquarium salt will turn the water blue.. Weird. So. What do I do ATM?

    By the way,

    The filter : Eheim 2213/2215 filter. (It was faded)

    Aeration : High.

    Ammonia : 0

    Nitrite : I don't know.. As I don't have the test kit.

    Nitrate : About 10 or 20ppm.

    No readings are in my tap water.

  3. Normal Canister filters work like:

    ___________ <-- Water in.

    | |

    | |

    |___________|----> Water out.

    But my filter is working this way!

    ___________ ---> Water out

    / \

    |____________|<-- Water in.

    Why? I did kinda open up the head part of the Eheim 2213/2215 and put them back in.

  4. Put a chair in front of the aquarium, and look at the fish. Follow each one and watch them forage!

    i try to follow each one. But i get distracted by the one that just swam past funny, then the one pushing its face up against the glass and wiggling trying to come up to me... Oh its so much fun :)

    I KNOW! They're so.. Adorable!
