Prazi round one in. I am wanting to do bi daily WC but the normal process is add prazi Wait 5 days 50% wc add more from memory please correct me if I'm wrong)... now im not sure what to do. Should I add more prazi every WC and keep doing bi daily? Or follow standard prazi method?

When I was doing prazi and had to do a WC (I was still cycling so frequent WCs were necessary), I would re-dose the prazi if I was still in a prazi round. For example, if I was in a 5 day prazi round I would do the following:

Round 1 prazi:

Day one - large WC, full dose of prazi

Day two - prime if ammonia present

Day three - 50% WC, half dose of prazi (if 75% WC, then 3/4 dose of prazi)

Day four - prime if ammonia present

Day five - 50% WC, half dose of prazi

Day six - 90%+ WC, NO prazi

Day seven - 90%+ WC, NO prazi

Day eight - 90%+ WC, NO prazi

Round 2 prazi:

Day nine - 90%+ WC (prime), full dose of prazi

Day 10-13 - same as day 2-5

etc.

This is approximately what I did. While in a prazi round, if I did a WC, I re-dosed the prazi in proportion to the WC. While not in a prazi round (day 6-8), I would try to eliminate the prazi, dead flukes and unhatched fluke eggs with large water changes.

I hope this helps.

Fantastic! Thankyou. Ill do exactly that. Helps allot :);)

So I have come across a strange issue... my 3ft tank has amazing clear water... my 4ft is cloudy and getting worse even with the water changes. I don't understand :blink: I have an oranda with some serious wen growth going on so once that has finished ill add some carbon to see if that helps... I don't want cloudy water when my uv sterilizer comes in!

Oh there's always something lol

You could be getting an algal or bacterial bloom, which to me indicates that there is a imbalance in your tank.

Oh no. Could it be too much WC? Is that even possible?

Operation QT. I have completed the third week of QT. Unfortunately I couldn't keep up the water changes last week whilst sick but it was only a week and they are enjoying a nice 90% WC now ♥♥♥ so quick recap.... bi daily WC, only feeding NLS goldfish, peas, gel food made up of greens, all soaked in garlic elixir plus little pieces of garlic. also feeding probiotic once per week. Getting uv sterilizer as soon as I can. Have done 4th round of prazi. I think I might stop at 5.... don't actually remember how I git to 5 rounds, might look that up again lol. So far I have had some very strange wen growth and vein streaks I my white fish.... little concerned but ill keep trying!!!

Hi everyone :D first month of operation QT complete! One third of the way there :lol:

So far still all good. The red streaks are starting to fade, the strange wen growth is still there. But getting smaller. Nothing else noticeable going on accept for a serious growth spirt!

The filter is second hand. Its a aqua one aquis 1200. What's the best way of serializing it? Can I just bleach it? Will that harm the filter at all? I don't want to introduce anything bad whilst operation QT is still going :lol:

Do you guys think 3 months is enough time to make sure my tanks are disease free?

Ill post about my water chemistry when I get home from work. Ill put a post in D&D. Last WC was last weekend another WC is due tomorrow (ill do it today) im half way through operation QT and have dropped back water changes to 80% once a week.

One fish is bottom sitting and heavy breathing. Will respond when I go near the tank but swims week.

Also eats happily.

Hopefully its constipated. However last time this happened my fishy passed within 24 hrs.

Waaaah!
