Mga February lang ako nagsimula dito, sobra kasi depression ko dun sa bad-luck streak ko (featured in "Horror Stories") na nagdecide ako sumali para me mapagbuntungan ng frustration ko. hehehe

hayy... ayun, mukhang stunted na yung mga shorttail ryukin ko. Yung mga bagong ranchu at least lumalaki pa rin... which is strange because I give them the same water and food and care regimen. But for some reason, di na lumaki yung ryukins ko! Argh! :krazy:

Hello guys,

nanganak ang gf ko at nag hatch lang either kahapon or kanina. Akala ko nga hindi sila mabubuhay dahil normally pag kakuha ko nang halimbawa kahapon, bukas naglalanguyan na yung maliliit. Una ko, namatay sa methylene blue (magisa lang iyon). Pangalawang batch mas marami (around 30-35 sila), third day halos wala nang lumalangoy. Apart from that, aksidentaly ko nailagay sa tank nang mother and father nila (lumusot sa maliit na plastic for hatching) at yun...kinain nang mga gf. Iyak ko lang!

Anyway, ngayon nga, bago nanaman itong batch. I had about 100+ eggs, nag hatch lang siguro mga 10 - 15. binigyan ko na nang liquid food at meron na rin silang live plant to breath and cling on.

Inalis ko na iyung mga hindi nag hatch pero meron mga hindi pa nagha-hatch na egg with two eyes. Left them there muna. Ewan ko kung tama ang ginagawa ko. Any advise, please?

Yeah I think ok naman yan. I put them in a large container nalang. Parang temporary aquarium nila. What liquid food do you give? So far pina ka ok na food is live brine shirmp and micro worms(dont know where to buy this) and may micro flakes din(parang powder). Good luck :D

kung goldfish gusto mo e A.Bernales sa main alley ok minsan. kung gusto mo ng cheap na malalaking ryukin at oranda, dun sa mga maliliit na stall sa second alley (kung saan nakatayo yung Kois and Ponds. Pero kung exotic tropical oddballs hanap mo, Metro and maganda... medyo mahal nga lang.

Wow! Sanay ah. Kami minsan dinadaanan talaga namin lahat ng shops para lang sure.

What do you guys think about saving "feeders"? Kagi kasi asa forums yun na parang awang awa sila sa feeders na goldfish. Sa akin, wala lang, pinapakain ko lang sa turtle ko :rofl

:( Okey, bagong problema. Yung Ryukin ko....his fins and tail nagkakaroon nang pula na parang dugo ang kulay.

One of my oranda namatay last week in the same aquarium so I started putting some salt in. Pero biglang nagkaroon ng amoy na malansa ang aquarium ko. This is everyday. At lagi ding cloudy. I practically change my water nearly everyday na.

Today lang naman nagkaroon nang parang dugo dugo sa tail and fin si "Landi". Any suggestion kung ano ang dapat kong gawin? :(

bacterial bloom sa tubig ang problema mo, hope... masyado ata mabilis paglagay mo ng salt kaya na-disturb microfauna ng tank mo e...

Sa experience ko, Melafix ang madaling solusyon para magamot yung bacterial infection-induced na bloody veins sa fins ng goldfish... pero hindi sure-fire na remedy yun ha... at least nga lang hindi magka-crash ang biofiltration mo unlike pag gumamit ka ng salt o antibiotics.

Kelangan mo nang i-total overhaul ang tank mo at i-cycle uli. hindi mawawala ang bacterial bloom sa waterchanges lang.

Hi Man Yu, Thanks for replying. :)

Ibig mong sabihin, i-stop ko muna and salt? Kagabi, hindi na ako nag-lagay ng salt nung pinalitan ko yung tubig nila ng about 99% na dahil nga sa baho. Sabi nung isa sa isang forum bakit daw 99%? Sabi niya too much daw. At least 70% and then change again after 12 hours....ganoon ba yun? :o

Itong "Melafix" ano ito? Kasi sa Hong Kong ako nakatira, I don't think I have seen Melafix before. Pupunta ako sa Mongkok mamaya or bukas para bumili nang mga gamit nanaman ng mga isda ko. :ill

At saka itong "cycle", ano ba talaga dapat ang gawin para tama ang pag-cycle? Kung pupuwede...paki turuan mo ako please how to cycle step-by-step. Akala ko, yung pag palit ko ng tubig means nag "cycle" na ako? :blink:

kung bagong setup lang kasi ang aquarium wala pang colony ng beneficial bacteria na magbe-breakdown ng metabolic wastes ng isda (gaya ng poopoo at wee wee nila) kaya nagbui-buildup ang ammonia at Hydrogen sulfide (yun ang nagpapabaho at nagpapalabo ng tubig). Kaya dapat, bago mo pa nilagyan ng isda, at least three weeks mo nang nasetup at pinapatakbo ang filters. merong nabibiling bottled cycle jump-start cultures sa ilang petshop na ibubuhos mo sa aquarium para ma-introduce yung beneficial bacteria pero di na ko gumagamit nun. Ang system ko kasi, kahit bagong setup me isda na (yung poop nila meron din kasing helpful bacteria yun) pero for three weeks e gumagawa ako ng 75% waterchange every other day para makayanan ng mga isda yung pag-increase ng ammonia habang nagmumultiply pa yung bacteria. Ang filtration ko ay powerhead na may sponge (mas mabilis nako-colonize ng bacteria ang sponge e... madali pang linisin kumpara sa ibang filter media) kaya mabilis din nasa-cycle.

Pag me nagpakita nang green algae sa glass ng aquarium mo at hindi na mabaho ang tubig at nanatiling malinaw kahit 4 days kang hindi nagwaterchange ibig sabihin cycled na yun.

Yung Melafix gawa yun ng Aquarium Pharmaceuticals... antibacterial water additive gawa sa Tea tree oil. Kahit dito sa Pilipinas mahirap humanap nun (sa Bio Research nga wala e) pero me malapit na petshop sa min na nagbebenta. Thank god.

Hope that helps.

kung bagong setup lang kasi ang aquarium wala pang colony ng beneficial bacteria na magbe-breakdown ng metabolic wastes ng isda (gaya ng poopoo at wee wee nila) kaya nagbui-buildup ang ammonia at Hydrogen sulfide (yun ang nagpapabaho at nagpapalabo ng tubig). Actually, hindi bago ang aquarium ko. My fish have been in it for more than 10 months na. Kasi nga, namatay si "Liit" ko last weekend, kaya naglagay ako ng salt sa tubig. Pero nga lang, bumaho siya this week lang at nag cloudy. Pero, this morning, hindi naman cloudy yung tubig - "hay salamat". Kaya dapat, bago mo pa nilagyan ng isda, at least three weeks mo nang nasetup at pinapatakbo ang filters. merong nabibiling bottled cycle jump-start cultures sa ilang petshop na ibubuhos mo sa aquarium para ma-introduce yung beneficial bacteria pero di na ko gumagamit nun. Ito ba yung parang "Aquarium Starter, Water Detoxifier - Biological Nitrite elimination"? Ang system ko kasi, kahit bagong setup me isda na (yung poop nila meron din kasing helpful bacteria yun) pero for three weeks e gumagawa ako ng 75% waterchange every other day para makayanan ng mga isda yung pag-increase ng ammonia habang nagmumultiply pa yung bacteria. Ang filtration ko ay powerhead na may sponge (mas mabilis nako-colonize ng bacteria ang sponge e... madali pang linisin kumpara sa ibang filter media) kaya mabilis din nasa-cycle. Yung filter ko comes together with the aquarium, ang gamit ay yung disposable na fibre na puti? I change that every week. Pero these days, every day palit ng palit dahil nga sa cloudy. Pero, as mentioned, getting better. I just need to get rid of the smell.

Pag me nagpakita nang green algae sa glass ng aquarium mo at hindi na mabaho ang tubig at nanatiling malinaw kahit 4 days kang hindi nagwaterchange ibig sabihin cycled na yun. So, yung nakikita ko noon na green na marumi sa gilid-gilid ng aquarium, that is good..? Yun ang ibig sabihin ng cycled na siya. So what do I do next doon, change water na? Do you clean the Algae? Coz I clean them whenever I change water...

Yung Melafix gawa yun ng Aquarium Pharmaceuticals... antibacterial water additive gawa sa Tea tree oil. Kahit dito sa Pilipinas mahirap humanap nun (sa Bio Research nga wala e) pero me malapit na petshop sa min na nagbebenta. Thank god. So...itong Melafix, hindi siya, detoxifier, hindi din siya conditioner...talagang pang alis ng bacteria siya?

Hope that helps. Sorry too many questions, have to make this perfect, kasi kabibili ko lang ng bagong aquarium nilang mas malaki...kung meron akong problema sa maliit na aquarium, imagine ang problema sa malaki....? Phew. Thanks din in Advance...

ah, hindi pang-alis ng bacteria yung Melafix... pangremedy sya ng bacterial infection (tinutulungan nya kasi mag-heal agad kung merong affected body part yung isda e). Kumbaga, parang ointment yung comparable analogy sa kanya (pero yun nga lang, sa tubig sya hinahalo)

Ok lang naman na linisin mo yung algae sa glass ng aquarium mo. indicator lang sila na up and running na yung aerobic bacteria sa tank mo na nagko-convert ng ammonia into nitrates.

Continue with the water changes na lang at hugasan mo mabuti kung me gravel ka sa tank mo, kung meron, nagha-harbor pa siguro yun ng accumulated ammonia at Hydrogen sulfide... ang goldfish talaga kasi mas hiyang sa barebottom tank kaya mas madali silang i-maintain sa ganung setup e. Madali pa linisin.

Hi, question lang po sa mga experts dyan. I'm a newbie in this hobby. I just bought a 15 gallon tank last week and put 2 Ranchus in it with an angel fish. I'm still trying to get the hang of it. I'm getting a bit frustrated because the water in my tank is not as clear as theones I see in the pet stores like in tiendecitas etc. where the water is very clear. Mine is a bit cloudy. I have done several water changes already but still no effect. Ganun pa rin! My question is, am I getting impatient by expecitng the water to be clean or clear right away? Does it take a few days for it to be crystal clear? How can I ensure clear water? I notcied kasi one of my ranchus is more often in the bottom. he is a big ranchu so I hope it's his weight that's keeping him down and not somethng else like bacterial infection etc. Sana matulungan niyo ako. Thanks in advance.

anong color ng ranchu? kung black kasi mahirap ma-detect kung me bacterial infection kasi hindi mo makikita kung may angry-red areas yung skin. Pero kung light-colored naman malalaman mo kasi madali makita ang visible symptoms.

Overstocked nga pala ang tank mo Fred. Mahirap magmaintain ng malinis na water conditions nyan. My guess is that your ranchu is being afflicted by a high ammonia and nitrite level in the water (which is also why your water is cloudy). It takes at least four weeks for a newly-setup tank to cycle properly and become self-sustaining in keeping metabolic wastes down. Rule of thumb nga pala for fancy goldfish is AT LEAST 10 gallons for each fish... but preferably more so that their wastes don't build up to harmful levels too quickly.

My advice? since I don't think you have an extra tank handy, keep changing the water VERY frequently in the meantime... as in 50% every other day at least. That's the only way I could think of in which you could compensate for the small tank volume you have and the fact your tank hasn't finished cycling yet. This way, you keep ammonia and nitrites constantly diluted.

Does that mean I just have to be a bit patient and wait for the water to cycle? Nainggit kasi ako sa mga nakikita kong aquariums sa tiendicitas. Very clear water. Mine, I just changed the water again but it is sitll cloudyand a bit green especially when the lights are on. I hope it improves in a few days.

Just in case you guys are interested, ang pictures ng mga fish ko is in this site: http://s87.photobucket.com/albums/k132/hop...1&addtype=local :P

Hey Fred; maybe you can show us the picture of how your tank looks like. But Man Yu is absolutely correct, it will take at least 3-4 weeks for the aquarium to cycle properly. My current aquarium is actually small for 5 GF @ 26 gallons. I am upgrading to 48 gallon very soon as soon as my new aquarium is ready cycle-wise. :nana

Man Yu; what about activated carbon. When would you recommend that to be used. From what I heard, that makes the water clear from smell and cloudy water. Would you recommend? :idont
