  1. Thanks. I will continue the water changes and let you know how everything goes.
  2. Here is the picture of the algae eater I have. He has always been with the black moor. I'll see about moving him to the bigger 36 gallon tank. But, it is the only tank I'll have for all of the fish. I won't be running the 10 gallon tank after the moor gets better. Also, both fish are swimming more today. I'll do another 50% water change tonight. I have well water so there should not be chlorine in it. I did go ahead and add the stress coat + though last night when I did the water change. The moor's eye looks about the same...I'll wait and see on it. Thanks for your help.
  3. Thanks. I will do a 50% water change over the next few days. And not medicate the fish. Should I go ahead and add the API Stress Coat+ each time I do the water change? I'm not sure what kind of algae eater he is..He looks a lot like the Chinese Algae Eater. He is hiding so I cannot get a picture right now. But it does seem like his eyes may be protruding too. I do have aquarium salt but have never used it.
  4. Mainly I am wondering if I should do another water change and then dose with the Tetracycline. Or just a water change and hope the fungus/bacteria goes away on its own. It's not POPEYE right? Thanks!!
  5. Test Results for the Following: * Ammonia Level(Tank) - 0 ppm * Nitrite Level(Tank) - 0 ppm * Nitrate level(Tank) - 5 - 10 ppm (it was orange in color...not sure if it was closer to the 5 or 10 though) * Ammonia Level(Tap) - 0 ppm * Nitrite Level(Tap) - 0 ppm * Nitrate level(Tap) - 0 ppm * Ph Level, Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) - 7.6 (7.4 high Ph test) * Ph Level, Tap (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) - 7.6 Other Required Info: * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? API Freshwater Master Test Kit * Water temperature? 72 degrees F * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? 10 gallon tank; complete water change about 2 months ago; 1/2 water change 2 weeks ago when fish became sick. I am using the 10 gallon tank as a quarantine tank. * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? TopFin 10 Filter * How often do you change the water and how much? Water is changed every two weeks or so now. In past water was not changed very often though. Will be changing 20% or so water weekly in new tank I have (will be moving fish to 36 gallon tank). * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? 2 days ago changed about 20%; 1 day ago changed 10-15% again when noticed that the meds were not clearing out of the water. The water still has a green cast to it. * How many fish in the tank and their size? 1 Black Moor about 6 inches; 1 algae eater about 3 or so inches. * What kind of water additives or conditioners? Quick start; API Stress Coat + * What do you feed your fish and how often? TetraMin tropical flakes twice a day * Any new fish added to the tank? I bought a new tank and added new fish to it and the two old fish (black moor and algae eater). The two old fish became stressed and had a white fungus on them so I moved them back to the quarantine tank. * Any medications added to the tank? API Fungus Cure Powder * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. This is the second treatment with the API Fungus Cure Powder. The first treatment was about 3 months ago. The black moor had cloudy eye that seemed to clear up (although she did loose one eye). Treatment was for four days each time, according to the directions. * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? Frayed fins were cleared up with the first treatment of Fungus Cure Powder. Black moor has lost one eye as shown in the pictures. * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? She seems a little agitated, but is eating and swimming around.
  6. I won't be able to run the tests until this evening as I am at work right now. I'll post back the numbers to the best of my ability.
  7. Hi, I do have the master test kit, but with the water still being a little green I wasn't sure if it would be accurate. Thanks
  8. Hi, I have a two year old black moor that had some white stuff on her eyes and what looked like body slime that I treated with API Fungus Cure Powder. However, her eyes now have what looks like a white bubble on them. I have purchased some API T.C. Tetracycline. Do you think that this could be bacterial? If not, how should I treat it? I don't want to kill the fish by over medicating. It has been a over week since I did the last dose of the Fungus Cure. I don't think the bubble looks like Popeye. But, please let me know what you think. My tank is a quarantine tank that is still cloudy from the Fungus Cure Powder. The parameters were checked at the pet store and are as follows and are approximates: Ammonia ~ 0 Nitrate ~ 40 Nitrite ~ 0 ph ~ 7.2 Chlorine ~ 0 Alkalinity ~ 40 Thanks for any help
