  1. sorry I haven't had time to update princess is doing a lot better!She's gotten her appetite back and her eye is almost back to normal. Will try to post a pic soon
  2. quick update.... princess' eye still look the same so I guess it's not getting worst. She does try to eat but after a while of chewing,she spits out her food. Don't really know why but it doesn't look good
  3. I can deal with 3 days off...but a week(10 days to some people ).....makes me go crazy
  4. Thanks IMO!Will do as adviced Hope you have a nice day!
  5. Good morning IMO!How was your "GOLDEN WEEK"? It had been raining for a couple of days here so it was no fun for us Back to topic! I did think about a mouth ulcer as she kinda chew very sloooowly. I looked at her mouth but there was nothing that looked like an ulcer... I ordered epsom salt online yesterday and should be here in a couple of days. Can I use epsom salt with regular salt in my tank?Or would it be better to take the regular salt out?
  6. Just a quick update. I think Princess' eyes look better compared to yesterday. The ring around her eyes are less whitish?... She ate a few pellets but left a lot at the bottom.She does try but tends to spit after(not a good sign?)
  7. It is possible that twinkie could have done this!He has grown a lot compared to when I first got them. I just hope this does not get serious and end up losing Princess. Will try to find epsom salt ASAP! Thank you so much IMO Will keep you posted on any change
  8. Twinkie is definitely RAMBO! I noticed his breeding stars and have wondered if it was breeding behaviour but he only chases during feeding time. A tank divider is a great idea!I will definitely get one to give princess some peace. At the time,Princess is not showing any signs of flashing,yawning or gasping...just lethargic. She's not bottom sitting but stays still at the middle part of the tank. Stupid question,what is epsom salt and are we able to get some here in Japan?
  9. Hi Imo! thanks for the fast reply I really appreciate it. tank is fully cycled!YAY! I started to add salt a couple of days ago when I noticed the swelling on her eyes. I think both of her eyes are affected but the left eye looks a bit more swollen... She has not eaten for about 3 days now Twinkie still chase and nip during feeding time but she has always fought him for food. But since she started showing signs of popeye,it seems like she lost total interest in eating. I'm really worried

She's not eating and she seems to be lethargic. The tank is currently salted 0.3%. I'm worried as I've lost a precious fish of mine a long time ago showing the same signs.... help please Any help greatly appreciated
  11. Gave them peas tonight!I guess Twinkie loooooved peas a lot he became aggressive again took some videos....
  12. That is how I feed them now!I drop food on each end?corner of the tank so they could get their fair share. Twinkie still tends to push my princess around from time to time but not as bad as the first time I got them Thank you! I think princess is cute too I just hope she doesn't turn to be a prince!
