hmmm what do you mean when you say red fins near the gills?
Is there anything the they can cut themselves on in the tank.
any other signs that van help us understand which disease we are dealing with. How is the water quality.
the wings or watever that are near thier gills are red and they have a red line through their body. water is clean my friend said ammonia might be high isit true?

they may be rubbing on something in your tank and cut themselves. Whaqt's in your tank?

Yes: Checking the ammonia levels is highly recommended since it can cause some of the problems you fish sounds to be suffering from.
are the catfish with the poisonous fin able to be kept with other fish? caus i just added 3 with my koi and my convicts and 4 days later my koi died
06-10-2006, 10:59 PM
which species of catfish to you mean.
06-10-2006, 11:27 PM
it sound to me like they got what is called, Reddening of body and fins.
the bottle of Pimafix will take care of that. if it not to late.
i see it alot in others peoples fish.
but this is just my 2 cent worth, for what it worth.
plus if that ,what they got. salt will help.
i dont know about the species of catfish but the shop owner said their fins were poisonous and if i were to touch it id end up in hospital. so yer. and as for rollie my brother said the same thing to put salt wen i rang him today. he said it heals the wounds. i was like wow. didnt know salt heal fish wounds.

It does help heal, but more so it prevents infection

only use aquarium salt though. Not just any salt you find in your home.
OMG ARE U FOR REAL. I USED COOOOOOKING SALT WAT WIL HAPPEN OMG

they should be fine. you are not supposed to used salt if it got iodized (spell wrong) in it. i had used it many a times and all was fine.
but iodized is used for to treat certain things in fish.
you should used only sea salt or pure coarse salt, the kind that is used for pickling.
ahh k koool
a catfish just died in the tank where my koi fish died. soooooo sad. koi fish has been with us for like 6 years. catffish is like 7 inches. so is koi. i still got 10 convicts and 2 catfish in that tank should i put salt in their to keep other catfish from dying??

some will say no, but you could.
your convict cichlid could be helping to killed your fish.
they should never be in with other fish, except others cichlids.
lols theyve been fine over last month
06-11-2006, 11:09 AM
all i can do is give advice.lol
true. another freeking catfish died im gona sell the last one now since i think its gona die sooner or later
06-11-2006, 11:19 PM
all i can say is, that to bad. :cry:

Salt can kill some catfish species so its a gamble to use it in that tank.
Have you checked the ammonia levels yet?
just wondering cause i caught a catfish lat looked liked the one i got at home but it was like 17 inches. i put it in rain water wen i got home and then it swam around looking lively, but next morning it died. they dont like rain water?
06-13-2006, 01:10 AM
had you check your ammonia.
could of hurt him when you catch him, maybe.
nah cause i thought those cat fish were "tanks" i caught them from the lake.
by the way just wondering wat the points are for i got like 2.8k points
