  1. Thank you In relation to my other thread, i went and got another heater and thermometer. The water was at 60 so i am increasing it just a little today then a little more tomorrow and so on. Will the eggs be ok? It won't harm them?
  2. Hey, im finding it hard to pick out the bad eggs as they all look kinda the same lol What do you all think? Have they got fungus on or are they ok? It was a tuesday morning spawn. http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f204/jesbaxter1/Mobile%20Uploads/image_zps1a6zdlol.jpg~original
  3. Ok thanks very much for your help! Will it harm the eggs if I add a heater now? When do I need todo my first water change after they have hatched?
  4. Hey, I woke up this morning to my orandas going crazy and chasing. I thought i would just pop my mops and wait to see if anything came of it. Instantly they where in them and i have EGGS!! Im so excited! i have never had eggs before so i need some step by step help. I hope they are fertilised. This is what i have done so far: http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f204/jesbaxter1/Mobile%20Uploads/image_zpstygvvr7u.jpg~original Thanks
  5. What a cute pearlie Have you got anything in your tank that the tail could get caught on and ripped as the fish swam away from it? Have any of the other fish shown any of these symptoms?
  6. He is abit better this morning:) I have been talking to jennie from solid gold and she suggested I do a salt dip and do 100% water changes everyday. So I did the salt dip last night and the little guy seems a little better. He/she is no holding its dorsal up again. Still doing a little bottom sitting. I can still see some slimy looking stuff but he has more color back The salt dip strips their slime coat (and any nasties that were making their homes in it/on your fish )..., so what you're seeing is the regeneration of it throughout the body. The colour may be due to being in more favourable water conditions, along with melanophore migration from previous chemical exposure. Glad you've found Jennie to help, but we're here for you too! Have you started a praziquantel treatment? I use wormer plus as my fluke treatment. I started to but then i have been doing 100% water changes every day and it needs to be in the tank for 4 days :/ so i suppose not really. just for the future, how often can you use a salt dip?

  10. Ok where do i find the form? i picked the fish in person the bought it home. It was fine, really active. This morning there didn't seem to be any problems. He/she looked normal was acting normal and ate. Then when i came home 7 hours later this had happened
  11. Hey, I need help! My new fish i got on sunday from Starfimsheries isn't doing to well. I came home from work today and noticed he/she had developed like a whits slime on its back, dorsal fin and tail. He/she is a little lethargic, just hanging around the surface but not gulping for air. The fish is currently in QT. i have done 1 90% water change since i put him/her in. There is a filter with cycled media from my main tank and an air stone running. The fish in my main tank have no sign of this problem so i don't think it came from the media. I have done a water change and added 'Waterlife whitespot and fungus'. I don't really no what else i can do. I don't really think i can fill out the question sheet as i have only had the fish 2 days :/ All my water perameters are fine. Here are some pics http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f204/jesbaxter1/Mobile%20Uploads/image_zpsml7mz47h.jpg~original http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f204/jesbaxter1/Mobile%20Uploads/image_zpslgfqgxtm.jpg~original
  12. He is so cute! I love his face!! I hope he perks up! ????
  13. Thanks everyone!! I can't make any out on close inspection. I'm praying she is a she because my poor girl in my main tank is the only female and there are 3 makes with her. They have been chasing her quite abit lately! I will wait and see how she/he reacts to it when I put it in the main tank ????
  14. Hey, I was taking photos of my new fish so i can track her progress with growth, colour changes etc. I thought i would put them up because the ones i posted yesterday she was still in her bag. These photos show her colour patterns better http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f204/jesbaxter1/Mobile%20Uploads/image_zps3d10h0cr.jpg~original http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f204/jesbaxter1/Mobile%20Uploads/image_zpsiisdpz9m.jpg~original http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f204/jesbaxter1/Mobile%20Uploads/image_zpsgpcznd5h.jpg~original

She is a panda. You can already see the orange creeping through! I can't wait to see what she will look like when she loses her black (if she loses all of it).
