  1. Taco has been seeming depressed lately. She’s not swimming much. She’s hanging out on the surface of the water and only stays on the side of the tank. The fish tank has also recently been turning greenish when it didn’t before. The filter works fine and we replace it regularly. Does anyone know what might be going on? :(

  3. Hello guys, I have recently bought a new goldfish and put it into the quarantine tank (which is 4 gallon big (or small )). From the first day I have noticed that he was making white poop. Also, the fish had issues maintaining an orizontal position when relaxed, he kept getting onto his head or even on his back (like in the image below): He doesn't seem too stressed about that though. And can swim correctly(?) when feeding for example or when not feeling lazy (my guess). At first i've treated him for an internal bacterial infection, due to the awkward swimming: https://www.sera.de/en/products/in_category/ornamental-fish-treatments-335/product/sera-baktopur-direct.html No change after 3-4 days. Then i read some threads on this forum and feeded him only peas for 4 days. Fasted him for a week.after. Still no change. Tried to diagnose him using http://www.jbl.de/en/online-hospital Seemed to me to be intestinal parasites now (used fish sick and fish not eating as selections, though the fish does eat...) Used this for 8 days: http://www.jbl.de/?lang=en&mod=products&func=detail&id=5573 I'm at the end of this treatment. There have passed 3 weeks + since I bought and quarantined him. I'm doing 50% water changes every 2-3 days. Feeding every 2 days 1 pea. Fish seems to have lost a little weight but might be due to the 1 week fast. It has normal appetite. Still poops white. Still floats. Doesn't seem to be affected by the floating Was thinking to try the other product they recommend now: http://www.jbl.de/?lang=en&mod=products&func=detail&id=5569 but tought I might ask here first. So any advice you guys have, would be appreciated. (pls mind that I live in europe and don't have access to your u.s.a. medications. jbl are the most easy to get here) thanks, radu
  4. Hi, sorry for all of the questions lately. I am planning to start dosing potassium before I take the plunge and go the dry fert route, but I also ordered Seachem Nitrogen since I am noticing some yellowing on new growth (namely my sword). However, I'm still cycling the tank (high nitrite phase), and I don't want to screw anything up. Would it be advisable to hold off on any kind of Nitrogen dosage until things settle and the fish can fertilize everything? Nitrates are at around 5 ppm before I do a big water change. One other question: my Brazilian pennywort keeps wanting just to float in the tank. Should I let it? I've noticed that some people seem to be able to grow the pennywort in kind of an attractive daisy chain, but my penny wort just wants to float all over, which I don't find attractive. Would I have to put the stems close together (floating one of them) with the hope that their aerial roots will link them? Or should I just keep replanting them? I've also noticed that my creeping Charlie wants to be more of a thicket than a set of orderly planted stems, so I've let a couple float in the thicket there. Would it need more water column ferts to succeed? (I use Excel and Flourish comprehensive... and the potassium soon). My pennywort isn't growing as much as I'd anticipated and isn't sending out a lot of aerial roots. The Charlie is doing better. By contrast, my bulb plants are doing decently (growing some new leaves fairly regularly. Sorry for all of the questions again and thanks for any advice.

My goldfish started acting up a few weeks in to Feb he was laying upside down with his face on the bottom. I did a fasting for 3 days then peas still didn't help. Then I stayed up for 48 hours and I noticed that when the light was turned off he was laying normally like fish should when sleeping. I shined my iphone light to the tank and moments later noticed he was upside down so I turned it off. I then be began to watch tv then noticed he was right side up. As it gets close to bed time he goes upside down till the light turns off. During the day he will float normally and swim normally like a healthy fish should. He seems healthy and happy but when it gets time for bed and it is dark in my room he turns upside down till all lights have been turned off.
  6. Hello I have been seeking help for weeks now. My goldfish Neo who is a Jumbo Oranda has some swimming issues. I have had him for 2 months now and just this month he has started to do this really scary thing but ONLY AT NIGHT for some reason he floats around upside down most of the night. He dose gulp air sometimes during the day but its not a massive thing like you would see if the water quality was very poor. I have asked and asked people to help and no one has an answer. I am fasting him for 3 days and hoping it will help I just want to take precautions just in case it doesn't work. He lives in a quarantine tank which is a 20 gallon long tank with 40 gallon canister filtration system. I feed him peas repashy gel food solient and super green 50% mixed together and on rare days I feed him southern delight pellets (I have stopped feeding him those because I dot want to make things worse). As of right now I do not know his water parameters I have ran out of strips and haven't been able to go anywhere to get a kit or more strips because there was a hug snow storm that gave us 17 inches of snow. Also haven't done a water change since 2/13/15 because we have no water. But he didn't just start floating this week it has been all month. I try and do 3 water changes a week some are 100% and then some are just 50% they vary depending on what the water looks like. Please someone help me. I don't want my fish to die !
