API drops * Water temperature? 76.8F (usually around 72-3F... it's just hot today) * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? 29 gallons, 6 or so months * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? 2 AquaClear 70s * How often do you change the water and how much? Twice a week, 50-75% * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? Today, partial (10% for detritus) * How many fish in the tank and their size? 2: 1 fantail 3" body length but fat, 1 juvenile oranda * What kind of water additives or conditioners? Prime, GoldBuffer, Flourish Comprehensive and Excel * What do you feed your fish and how often? Repashy Super Green, NLS Thera-A, Omega One blood worms (occasionally), nori or algae scrapings (occasionally) * Any new fish added to the tank? The juvenile oranda 2 weeks ago * Any medications added to the tank? .1% salt * Any behavioral changes? Bottom sitting; surface gulping frequently and then she sometimes splashes and suddenly dives; trying to kind of swim into the filter outpouring?; periodic zoning out and drifting * What symptoms are being displayed? some mild tail fraying and opaque spots on tail; missing scales from flashing from small accident and fluke treatment 1.5 months ago *Previous treatments: The salt is for the missing scales and tail problems; a few weeks ago she developed a secondary infection from fluke treatment (she had a heavy infestation, so I did six five-day rounds at .1% salt) and I treated with Kanaplex and Metroplex for 12 and 14 days respectively Meds available: Metroplex, Kanaplex, Furan-2, Triple Sulfa, PraziPro, Antibiotic food (metro), Methylene Blue, Quick Cure, Malachite Green, salt Sorry to have to write about Duchess again, but she has been bottom-sitting for three days now. Initially it was only at night, but I've now seen her doing it during the day. I went away for a day or so and came back to one of my AQ filters at a dead stop--the filter media smelled very bad, so I rinsed out everything with tank water, did about a 60% water change, and resumed filtration. The water no longer smells bad, but ammonia has gone from 0 ppm to a little over .25 ppm (I have been checking every day). Otherwise I don't know what else could have changed in the tank. Should I sterilize the filter media or is it too late anyway? From my previous threads, some of you may know that I was very worried that flukes weren't Duchess's only problem, since she has been gulping at the surface since her Prazi treatment and her tail has not healed. Her scales are also still missing. I have inserted another air stone to make the surface of the water even more agitated and have not fed them today. Vickie seems fine. Any ideas? She has only ever bottom-sat when she was sulking through her Prazi treatments and during the first few doses of antibiotics.
