Thanks a lot Rocksor, I started feeding him the pellets one by one and now he is doing much better and there is no uneaten food on the tank bottom any more.

The Oscar is around 4 inches in length, I feed only what he eats in 2 minutes, he is showing the same amount of interest for all types of food, be it goldfish pellets, Arowana pellets, Freeze dried...

Thanks for the replies, and my nitrate levels are amazing low around 5ppm, it used to be at 30ppm with 500mg of Ceramic Rings, could the extra 1Kg Ceramic Rings be playing a role in reducing Nitrate...

Two more questions.
1. I have added more bio-media as per fishmommie's advise, see post #2. So now I have in the top tray Boyu Sponge and remaining 3 trays Ceramic Rings, total 500*3 = 1.5Kg. I...

Thanks for the tip Sandz, Noted and will be useful in an emergency.
Just a few more questions.
When I am cleaning the inside of the tank glass do I have to wash my hands and arms properly with...

Done will do just that.

Well I just have one single 4 inch Oscar and my tank size is 63 gallons - non planted tank, I am doing a 30% water change along with siphoning out the waste every 5 days, I feed only what my Oscar...

Thanks a lot for your reply, just a small question when do I replace the top sponge then, every 2 months or till it falls apart ?
I ll also add more ceramic media as per your advise and how often...

Alright my tank has successfully cycled and I have my Oscar in it atlast.
Nitrate : Around 40ppm
Test kit : API Master Freshwater Test Kit
I have few...
Okay I too agree and we can cancel out the clown loaches.
I don't mind them taking a week to clean the tank, but a 1.5 inch assassin snail vs 4 inch Oscar compatible ?
Tank is a 63 gallon / 240...
No we have an RO+UV water purifier and use only water from that for drinking and cooking.
Then let me describe it the best I can, it is a transparent orb with a tiny white core and I can squash say 10 of them completely with a finger with minimal pressure (which would leave a white goo...
Thanks for the replies and a few final questions, I intend to keep a 4 inch Tiger Oscar once my tank gets cycled, so would it hurt the assassin snails, if yes then are there any fish that I can keep...
So it may be snail eggs if not fish eggs if not eggs of some aquatic creature living in the depths of my rivers, put short do assassin snails eat eggs.
This tank is a 4 footer and its previous residents were a Silver Arowana, Red Arowana, Copper Oscars, right now the tank is empty, fully cleaned, this outbreak first happened when my Red Arowana was...
Nope the tap water is not treated, I doubt it even has chlorine in it.
Few years back we had repaired a blocked pipe and guess why the pipe was blocked there were hundreds of dead snail shells in...
Definitely not nerite snail eggs and there are no snails in the tank, the eggs seem to come with my water which originates from lakes and rivers, the eggs look like white dots maximum 1 millimetre in...
Quick question do assassin snails eat snail eggs deposited on the tank walls ?
Thanks Rocksor will definitely give assassin snails a go.
My last suspect is snail eggs, because when this outbreak happened it occurred within 48 hours and it looked like tiny slimy white dots, and 2 years back we had a pipe blocked for over a year in one...
There is a very high possibility it may not be a calcium deposit but an organism, our water comes directly from rivers and lakes, I just fished out a tiny swimming organism yesterday and it looks...
