I've been in the process of putting together a first aid kit for the goldies and it's been hard finding all the medicine you all have had suggested since I'm located in Europe. So far I could order Kanaplex, Metroplex, Furan-2 and PraziPro. While waiting for the order to arrive, I've been looking for meds I can purchase locally (because holy cow shipment fees) and stumbled upon this: https://www.microbelift.com/products/home-aquarium/fish-health/artemiss-freshwater/ and https://www.microbelift.com/products/home-aquarium/fish-health/herbtana-freshwater/ What are your thoughts on them?
Hi! I hope Koko will read this and help me out cause I'm told she's the expert on silver here. I'm looking into colloidal silver I can get in my country for my fish first aid kit. What I found is available in two forms: liquid and powder. There's a slight possibility I may need a prescription for the later and ask at the pharmacy what the concentration is and what additives it contains. The liquid one is described on label as 30%/l solution and recommended use in mouth was and desinfenction is 1 part of silver to be disolved in 2 or 4 parts of water. It also says that 100ml can be applied to treat 5 liters (aprox. about 1,5gal if my calculations are correct.) Is this concentration any close to the 500ppm Koko recommended in another thread? Should I go for liquid or powder? I'll have to order it as they probably won't have any in the pharmacy and the delivery will take some time.
Hi there! Sorry if this is not the right place to start this thread, though it seems to me it should be. I'm a bit of a control freak and like to be prepared for what comes so I'm making myself a fish first aid kit with all medicine I may ever need. Where I live the good stuff is hard to obtain as tend to be expensive and pet shops rarely sell them as having them on stock means 0 profit due to low demand which also results in the common practice of "extending" indefinately expiration dates on the packages of products. Already happened to me several times that I would buy something online and the good till stamp would be modified to a more convenient date by some forgery artist wannabe. In store itself ain't much of a different story. When asked why they sell expired goods, the shop person readily explains that this med or whatever is practically eternal in its effectiveness and never looses its healing or nutritive properties. This has made me resort to ordering online almost everything for my pets from UK. Hence the question in this section of the forum. I want to buy some colloidal silver for my fish stash but all I could find when searching the net is 20ppm and from what I read in a post by this forum's founder and reknown expert in c.silver, Koko, the concentration should be from 500ppm up to 1000ppm. If any of you British fellow goldfish keepers could advise me on where I can order it, I would very, very much appreciate it. Oh, and one more thing! I found this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Colloidal-Pets-Silver-250-ml/dp/B0063FWTTG/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1441175174&sr=8-9&keywords=colloidal+silver Do you know if it would do for fish too? Thank you in advance for all your help, M
Hi there! As a newbie one of my greatest concerns is my precious goldfish would get sick. Reading here and there I learned that aquarium salt can be used as a form of treatment for fungus infections. What I read and also saw on Youtube was about giving fish salt dips or baths to help them restore and reinforce their bodies' natural defense. I was wondering, and here goes my question, could I add a teaspoon or two of marine salt to my 20g tank once a month as a prevention measure?I don't have any live plants so I only worry if the salt would mess with the water values or hurt the fish instead of keeping them healthy. Thank you in advance for your answers! M
Hi all, I am new to the forum, and while I did scan this page for similar questions, I may have missed an extant Q&A, in which case I apologize! I am planning to set up a QT for a potential new fish. I have read that it is a good idea to feed the new fish antibacterial food as a prophylactic and I'd also like to have some on hand in general. However, it seems that Goldfish Connection no longer sells Medi-Gold! I can't seem to find it anywhere. Amazon sells Medi-Koi, but it comes in enormous amounts. Has anyone here been pleased with another antibiotic food that would be available to me in the US? Thank you!
