  1. I have recently used Seachem Purigen and I have notice my Ammonia, Nitrite and Nitrate have dropped significantly. My water changes would happen every 3-4 days depending on the nitrate reading. Now I'm on day 6 since the last water change and my Nitrate level is at 10ppm. I'm running an overstocked 60 gallon Ranchu tank. Give it a try it won't hurt. It cost just under $9 on Amazon.
  2. I have HOB, sponge filter and wet/dry filter sump. My water is perfect!
  3. Sorry guys I've been busy working and taking care of my goldfish. I lost one Ranchu after medicating with nox ich. I did a 75 percent water change and added .2% salt and I completely. stopped using nox ich after 48 hours my Ranchu looks better than ever! She's eating and has her movement back. I'm going to continue with salt at .1 percent for another 5 days. It looks like she's going pull through. Thanks you for all of your help!
  4. So it's been about 3 days and my Ranchus haven't eaten anything. I'm still medicating them. They don't look right when I stare at them. They looked really stressed and I'm afraid they might die. I can use some help right about now.
  5. How much salt do I add for a 29 gallon with sick fish? Sorry im not the best at math.
  6. Is it typical for goldfish to lose there appetite when you're medicating the tank?
  7. Will do. Thank you for your help!
  8. Sorry I was currently at work when I was replying back in regards of my nitrite and Ammonia. I can give more accurate numbers later on today when I'm off from work. The only additives I add to my tank are seachem prime and stability. I've also noticed when I add stability I notice a jump in Ammonia.
  9. I've been cycling my 60 gallon for 6 days with seachem stability . After I tested the water the Ammonia and Nitrite are fairly high and my nitrates are low. One day I'll have no Ammonia and Nitrite with low nitrates. The next day Ammonia and Nitrite are up. I'm not sure what's going on? Maybe the beneficial bacteria is trying to build up? I did a 50 percent water change to lower the Ammonia and Nitrite to help the bio load. Since I did a water change does it affect my cycle? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. My current set up: 60 gallon Filter: 2 aquaclear 110 Media: marine pure bio sphere Power head for circulation And an airstone. Water conditioner: Seachem Prime and Seachem Stability Type of tank: Bare Bottom Will be housing : 3 (5 inch) Ranchus. Thanks!
  10. Has anyone ever used Seachem Stability for a fish less cycle? And how long did it take once you completed your cycle?
  11. Good news everyone! When I got home from work I was checking up on them and seems all the ick spots have disappeared! Woohoo! Sent from my SM-N920V using Tapatalk
