Expected reactions to prazi and salt?

Recommended Posts

After 1st round of prazi and 0.1%, noticed redness on bottom and tails. White spots on one of my fish tail. 30g tank but only filled 2/3. Not cycled. They also group together in one corner.

How long have you had these fish? When did you add the Prazi? Did you do daily WCs, reposing the Prazi or ? Can you tell us what you did each day for round 1 please? :)

Are they eating?

Two weeks for new ryukins and December for butterfly. Started prazi Sunday doing 5 days round.

Feeding once a day and they are eating. I believe its water quality issues. Using ac50 with only sponge filter.

0.1% salt? Do I need to clean tank, filter, equipments with bleach? I use python for wc for qt and main tank. Do I need to disinfect it? Thanks

0.3%, but we can help you more thoroughly in your separate thread if you like.

I asked about the spots because they looked suspiciously like ich; I just couldn't decide from the time frame of things who has been harboring the parasite.

More redness to bottoms and sides on ryukins. Is it from the salt? Can I give them a break in another tub without salt?

Will increase heater to 78.

Salt is most likely not the cause of the redness. I urge you to start a thread in D&D, filling out the form as thoroughly as possible.
