  1. P0dges tail split and fluff I followed him so much with the camera that he spun round and gave me a quizzical look... "Why would Taryl want so mant photos of my butt?" He asks Pidgees tail and spots. His bruising and veins are good today. They seem to come and go. And one more of pidge Mandy is posting for mes...
  2. Heres what i have on hand and how much i have left of each, some are partially used. Paraguard 500ml Polyguard 10g Kanaplex 15g Wardley promethyasul 50ml Blue planet trisulfa 15 tablets Oxymav B oxytetracycline hydrochloride 9.3g/kg Potasium permangenate Api furan 2 10 sachets Metro 20 tablets Epsom Pimafix - not sure how much i have left but can get some within a 7to10 days via post Indian almond leaves Colliodal silver Most of these id only have enough to pull p0dge and pidge out in qt and treat them there, and salt the main tank. Im still working on uploading the photos, photobucket and my internet have yet to cooperate.
  3. Thankyou so much Taryl! Ill make a list of all my meds incase theres something else i have on hand you think will work better and get back to you with pictures.
  4. Ok, so finish this round and do one more? Or just this round then pimafix? And is the pima fix in qt or on the whole tank?
  5. The newbies had one round of prazi brfore adding them. The main tank had one round before adding the newbies, then theyve had their 3 further rounds together. They all just started the 5th round total yesterday.

Twice week min 50% * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? Yesterday and 60% * How many fish in the tank and their size? 7 in total, two 3inch ranchus Curly and Moe, one 4.5 inch demekin Louie, one 4inch pearlscale p0dge, one 3.5 inch pearlscale Tweedledee, one 3 inch pearlscale Tweedledum, and one 2.5 inch pearlscale Pidge * What kind of water additives or conditioners? Fraction * What do you feed your fish and how often? Homemade gellfood alexs no float recipe 3x per day. Sometimes alternate with peas or canned bloodworms * Any new fish added to the tank? Yes 2 the ranchus. Qted 1 week then had to add to main tank as they looked healthy and the other fish that was transported with them had swimbladder issues and i needed to reduce the qt water level for her (also treated her with epsom for 7 days). She can now swim upright in water no deeper than 30cm and is in her own tank. * Any medications added to the tank? Prazipro four 7 day rounds * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. P0dge had costia/sceptaceamia type symptoms, resolved over a year ago, treated with 3 months of qt with kanaplex metroplex and formaldehyde. Tweedledum the pearlscale has had tail fin issues. Still has raggard tail but seeing regrowth. Tried salt, metro, salt dips, and silver. No affect. Seems to have resolved in the larger tank with lower nitrates. Curly the ranchu had a bout of popeye last week. Resolved after 8 days QT in kanaplex and metro and epsom. Returned to tank 2 days. * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? P0dge has half inch long split in tail and slight white fluff on small section of split. Its been there 3 days, not resolving. P0dge also has pinprick blodspots on skin and enflamed tail veins that come and go from his intitial costia/sceptaceamia. Pidge has slight white fluff on tail which has been there 5 days, not resolving, not getting worse. Pidge also has some slight brusing and veins in fins/skin that come and go, as well as pinprick bloodspots that come and go. Louie had slight white tuft on tail 5 days ago that resolved itself. * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.?All eating and pooping fine, no bottomsitting. P0dge has some ballance issues mostly when he dives downward he ends up upside down for split second then rights himself. Pidges behaviour is normal. I was wondering if i could qt p0dge and pidge and use pimafix and prazipro together? Or should i prazi and pimafix the whole tank? P0dge is salt intollerant, put him near salt and he dropsies. Pictures are a bit tricky till later today. I need hubbys help to take them, and photobucket to cooperate enough to upload them. But i will try if needed.
  7. Thanks Chris! You should have seen my first qt with p0dge! Anything is boring after that one! Thanks Koko! The eyes got me in! Thankyou Fingers!
  8. Thankyou both! Ill keep an eye on it for redness and holes! My mind can rest easier now, and stop doing backflips! Thankyou so much Artic Mama and Koko!
  9. Thankies Mandy! Me too! OOOOOO I understand that bug! I have a strong chest of draws i was going to try to get a tank made that covers the top of it, so 50cm by 90cm by 30cm or 40cm deep. I thought of making it like an indoor pond as its right near a window. Ive got a aqua one 75Lphr canister cycling on the main tank for it when and if it happens. Its got a fair amount of media, but doesnt push the fish around like my 2000Lphr filters, so hopefully thats a better option. I hope i can get the tank for her! But of course cost is an issue. Ill probably end up with a storage tub till i can save up for the tank. Edit:forgot to answer your question! Doh! Shes about 13cm, maybe more, so 3.5 to 4 inches? Ive not measured her properly yet. Ill let u know when i do.
  10. Ok, ill see if photobucket and internet cooperate today! Here are pics of my other two babies. This is Curly. He was doing great but second week developed popeye. Fortunately i caught it fast. Hes in qt with epsom, metro and kanaplex for 7 days then I'll review how he is doing. He was bottom sitting and had puffy eyes. Hes all swimmy again after 3 days of treatment. Not eating well enough yet but we are working on that. Heres the cute little Curly..... hubbys calling him sardine in tomato sauce ???????? And my final addition is the most heart melting sweet ryukin girl. I have nammed her Belle, she has sustained swimbladder problems from shipping poor thing, but is slowly improving. Shes in her own tank of epsom and prazied water and i have reduced the water level to help her swim upright. She shows no other symptoms than headstanding and being uncontrolled in deeper water. Looking at this stage like she might need to be permanently in a shallower tank, so im making plans and getting prices for a custom tank big enough for 2 so she can have a friend. Im in love with this sweet critter! How could i resist those eyes?
  11. Thankyou! I hope a mod will see soon. ❤
  12. Hi Black! Ill try to post the other two as soon as my silly internet cooperates! ❤ Thanks mjfromga. Its a cute mush hey! Hi Speckles! I got her shiped to me from a fish shop near Mandy in Adelaide. Its called aquagold and its only been taken over by new management for maybe two and a half three months? Aaron is the store owner. One of my babies he noticed had a sore on his shoulder so Aaron postponed shipping and treated, then left 5 days after healing before sending to ensure it was properly healed. If his stock ate sick they get treated. He refuses to accept stock that are sick from suppliers, he refuses to accept stock that is below his standard of quality. Im hoping that he can continue for many years! I have more fish to buy yet! Well tank space at least! Thankyou! ????
  13. Thankyou Dawn! Im rather smitten!
  14. Hi! Ive had some new additions to my crew... there are 3 but i only got photos for this one before my photobucket and internet connection stopped cooperating. So here is Moe! I think shes a girl. Shes 2.5-3inches, i havent measured her properly yet. She was shipped to me with two others, another ranchu and a ryukin. They were going to qt all together, with a cycled filter, but my little ryukin was having major swimbladder issues so i needed to drop her water level to reduce her distress, meaning not enough room for all 3. So after two days in prazi and epsom for the ryukin, with no one flashing or moping, i decided as there was nowhere else to put them, and they look incredibly clean and healthy, that i would salt dip them before adding them to my prazied main tank. So, they have had a impossibly short qt, and ill be nail biting for 6weeks incase something terrible happens. Aaaaaaah! The only issue ive noticed today is a little white spot on her wenn. Does it look like wenn growth or something i should be worried about? But you didnt want to know all that. You want pictures! So here she is! Little wigglebutt Moe... ????????????
  15. Awe so many cuties! Gigi and Edward are my favs! ❤❤❤
  16. I use gel superglue, I cant tie fishing line at all! Not if my life depended on it!
  17. Hi all, Just wanted to let everyone know that Ive found a shop that is selling Dr Tims products in Australia! The shop has recently been taken over by new management and they have some stunning goldfish. They can post live fish and dry goods and are going to try to have an online store setup soon. Untill then you can talk to Aaron over the phone or at his store... its definately worth a look! Aqua Gold Aquarium Centre 1/311 North East Road, Hampstead Gardens SA 5086 Ph: (08) 8261 7808
  18. Hes just toooo beautiful. He maaaay stop sulking now.... maybe
  19. You've done so well with her recovery! My hat off to you for managing so well!!! and Slate... keep winning Slate, keep winning!
  20. Thankyou Liz!!! I have worked out a cheat method for wc.... I get a 4L icecream bucket... put a little hole in the bottom... put my finger over the hole and fill with how much water I need and the additives.... then put it over the top of the tank so the hole squirts water into the tank... is a cheat but it works!!!! They are Biospon filters.. you might be able to get them in the US? I don't know. I got mine from a shrimp keeper who imports them. They might be on ebay? http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2050601.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0.Xbiospon.TRS0&_nkw=biospon&_sacat=0 I find they keep the parametres much more stable than the sponge filters and are great under an increased bioload :-)
  21. Black ramshorn snails??? They are all adorable Mandy!!!!
  22. Ree Thanks I just got them so I'm not completely sure about food but from the other forum I joined a real popular one right now is Cologne Shrimp Food, Bacter AE (I'm going to try Shrimp Kings version) and leaf litter is good like this http://www.hanaquatics.com/woods-leaves-natural-products/ Mosura seems to be a good one too I love the name Shrimp Crack by the way! lol The name cracks me up too... when I first bought it and it arrived in the mail hubby opened the parcel and said... WHAAAT??? so I had to esplians meself . I have just put some alder cones in to see how they go. I have also tried the Indian almond leaves and they were not too fussed on them but the snails love them... they seem to do better with them in the water though. I also have some oak leaves in there as they are prettier than the Indian almond leaves. I cut the Indian almond leaves into hearts so they looked prettier in the tank ROFL. Your little tank looks so lovely!!! I cant wait to see how you go and how the tank develops!!! I love the heart idea !! too funny. Do we get to see your set up? I'm setting up another one for Orange Eye Blue Tigers right now. So addicted! I added it so you can see.... http://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/forum/index.php?/topic/123903-rees-shrimpeeeeez-pic-heavy/#entry1966331 OOOO BLUE TIGERS...
