  1. Chris here... I did order the medicated food Oxytetracycline flake food... I paid for priority shipping but it will be 2-4 days to get here.. I found a fish store fairly local... They have the Oxytetracycline in a powder form not food... Should I run there and pick some up??? Is it an appropriate alternative??? And if I do go please let me know what else to grab... Then seem to have larger selection of fish meds than so I would like to get what I need to start... I have ordered the 2 recommended seachem products that wer ment for Guy but they will arrive a few days form now...

    Thank you for your advice....

  2. We are chatting about this on the back end and another team member will be along to help you. You did order the oxytetracycline medicated food, correct? If so, that is probably the first treatment we will try. Stand by for further help from another team member and have a wonderful day. I hope we can help your remaining fish :)

    Ok... Thank you sooo much...

  3. And no plants added, no dirty nets, nothing? These are your only fish correct?

    Yes, you are correct ... Nothing but the take up tubes, air stone and thermometer ...

    Chris here... LOL!!! You're too funny...

     

    Shes funny smelling too :tomuch: JK Helen :kiss:

     

    How has the poops been have you seen one?

    Good morning Koko, Yes... I posted two pictures of his poop... In the last video post... His normal poops are brownish, 1/2 to 3/4 inch in length and a little chubby...

    In the pics 1, is long and pale green and the other is long and white and is attached to the uptake tube... I know that they were recent to last evening due to the 100% water change after Guy passed away... Should I be concerned???

    How crazy is this??? Worrying over fish poop... I pretty sure my hubby is getting me a reservation for the rubber room.... :waco:

    Thanks so much...

  5. Chris here on a side note... Mr Potato Head is still here... Still swimming frantic on occasion but eating well... I noticed something on his Side very small... I posted a video on Guy's post but it's very difficult to see... But hope someone can look at it... And tell me if I need to be concerned... And or start a new thread...

    Thank you....

    PS: going with no WC unless you say different....

  6. Chris here... I have followed your instructions... And the number is 2....

    You I couldn't just test the nitrites... Still messed up from loosing Guy... So here is TMI.... :wacko:

    PH=8.0, ammonia = 0, nitrite = 2-5, nitrate = 5.

    New method of nitrite testing = 2.0. :). .50 x 4 = 2.0

    Posted Image

  7. You should have 1/2 the nitrite with just one fish.  Do a 50% water change every other day.  I don't think it necessary to test anything other than nitrite, and that only before the water change.  Since  "5 ppm" on the test card can be  larger than 5 ppm, to get an accurate nitrite reading, do the following:

     

    Dilute the tank water with tap water (no Prime, of course)  :)  using one part tank water and 3 parts tap water.  A "part" can be anything you can easily measure -- a teaspoon, tablespoon,  etc.   

     

    Stir or shake to mix.  It doesn't take much.

     

    Test the diluted sample for nitrite.

     

    Multiply by 4 to get the tank nitrite.

    Chris here... Ok, I can do that this morning... To see what we get... I won't plan a WC today unless I hear different from you... I will share the morning numbers with you shortly... :)

  8. Chris here... So I continue with the heavy water changes until the second filter kicks in to take on the rest of the bio load? Provided tha Mr Potato Head confuse be ok???

     

    Chris here...  I'm starting to dislike auto fill...  :(    I wanted to say, provided that Mr. Potato Head continues to be ok...  

  9. Chris here... Arctic Mama, Helen, Koko.... I have another video of Mr Potato Head swimming... There is something on his side that looks off... It's really hard to see... When he faces you straight on in the video it will be down the right side where the belly tapers into the peduncle...nearly 2 thirds down vertically... I really can't describe it... I hope you can see it...

    I have included two poop shots... Yeah I know that is just what you want to see... But his poops have always been brownish short and kind of chubby... This is not normal poop for him :(.

    After losing Guy today I'm a little crazy... Sorry....

    You know what I'll put the pics in the next post

  11. I'm so sorry he passed! Sometimes they rapidly worsen and there isn't much to be done. You were right on top of his condition. And did your best. Frantic swimming in your remaining fish is something id like a video of - can you help us with that? Just to make sure whatever was ailing Guy didn't spread :(

    Chris here... I finally have a you tube account and the video is sitting there... But I'm a techno retard and don't know how to get it over here... Can you advise???

    Thank you... :crazy:

  12. Chris here... He seems to have calm down for the moment but I took a video anyway... I will try to upload it... But I'm can be a techno retard with this stuff... Is there a way to email it to you??? If I can't get it uploaded???

    Thank you....

    Hi Koko, I'm here... Just getting ready to jump in the shower.... No I have no you tube skills... :(

     

     

    I was kidding you hun cause you went into a warp dive lol

     

    Well first off hun, you will need to sign up for an youtube account... Once you got that you will be able to upload. :)

     

    Top right side is a sign in....Let me know when you got an account hun.. Ill help ya :)

    Hi Koko, ok... My son has created the account and put the video up in you tube... So now what is my next step???

  13. Chris here.... Shakaho, I have completed the experiment...

    The test on the left is the prime treated water with pre WC water... And the test on the right is the tap water with pre WC water.... The bottom is the pre WC water only....

  14. I'm so sorry and also worried about Mr. Potato Head.  Racing around the tank may indicate he's afraid he will get caught and disappear like Guy did.

    .

    Thank you Shakaho... I'm keeping a close eye on him... Not that that does anything for him, but it helps me focus on the next steps for the tank...

    I have tested this mornings water... pH - 8.0, ammonia= 0-.25, nitrite = 5, nitrate = 10-20...

    I have pulled water for the experiment testing and set it aside... What do you recommend for the WC amout today.... I'd like to do that b4 the testing... And should I do any thing different to the tank today??? Guy was not returned to the tank after yesterday's WC.... And he did pass in his hospital tub... I just want to make sure the tank is safe as possible for Mr. Potato Head....

    Hi Shakaho, ok, will do... On a side note when you get a chance, would share with me the best way to clean all the hospital tools that I used for Guy??? Tub, air stone bailing cups and such... Thank you!!!

     

     

    When I clean my stuff I use  bleach and hot water... Just get the tub and all the stuff if it will fit in the tub. Fill it with warm water and a cap of bleach. Let it sit for a few hours. Then Rinse and rinse and if you want rinse again. Then fill again with water and then a cap of Prime... Rinse again and let sit in the sun :)Oh Im not Sharon but thats how I do it :)

    Thank you!!! Koko!!! I'll start that tomorrow morning.... And write this down so I can remember... My brain is a little fried... My son is setting up the you tube stuff for me... So I hope to get a video up soon.... :wacko:
