Yesterday I had a nice mishap after a water change. Forgot to put the intakes back on the filter before starting it up. One of my small telescope fish made it in and through to the impeller. I'm not sure for how long but i would guess (and most certainly hope) that it was only for a few seconds. He's looking pretty rough, but is hanging in there. Eating and pooping, but is obviously not very happy. He is currently in a 20 long QT with an airstone and 0.1% salt. I just want to have this here to keep track of any changes i make, his progress, and in case things should take a turn. This was right after: And just now And a crappy video. F Just a note - i don't plan to handle him anymore for pics but wanted clear shots to start with.
I had an accident with Duchess today. She was trying to evade me when I was anxiously doing a huge water change--the dosing of Metro and Kana knocked out my filters and when I tested today, ammonia had leaped up to 1.0 ppm!!! She has now scraped off some scales and is sulking in her waiting bucket; I don't see any blood though. She is a bit bloodshot at the base of her dorsal fins and her tail veins are standing out more. Other than the water change, what can I do to make sure she doesn't get another infection? Salt at .1%? Melafix? I feel so terrible. She already is missing scales from all the flukes and so forth.
I got my fluval 306 today. I read all the instructions. I will have to wait till Dec. 4th for my stand to come before I hook up the filter to the tank. Have any one of you fluval canister filter owners have the filter tip or fall over? Any accidents or cautions?
I have 3 little feeder fish I used to help cycle my tank and the littlest one, Card, got stuck on the intake ): He seems alive his gills move and sometimes his fins but he won't swim and he just kind of floats. Is there a way to resuscitate him? I just feel bad I don't want him to die ): Plus Vonnegut and Rowling like to play with him. Poor guy. What can I do to prevent accidents like this in the future?
