  1. 11 days of high temp, 8 days since Ich visible. ...

    11 days of high temp, 8 days since Ich visible. Have researched on a number of sites, most indicate that it would be OK to start reducing temp now 4 -6 days after \ich visible from what I've seen. ...

    Update time...

    The day after the last update (March 10) the visible signs of ich had lessened, following day just a few specs to be seen. Since then, nothing. Tank is still at 86/87F (8th or 9th...
  3. Still got white spots. Lots more small (new to...

    Still got white spots. Lots more small (new to the eye) cysts, which doesn't look good. To summarise:

    March 4 - Ich noticed in evening, a few white spots on two fish. I started reading on the...
  4. Temp up to 85 or 86 depending on the thermometer...

    Temp up to 85 or 86 depending on the thermometer (two side-by-side at opposite end of tank from heater). Won't go any higher, but I added a bubble wand (14 streams of bubbles) and that likely takes a...

    Thanks, good to hear, and good luck - sounds like you've got it well in hand. I think I caught it early too, likely the first day it became visible. Just got to get that temp up. Slow and steady,...

    I have an old airpump and hose, I'll get an airstone and use that, thanks.

    If I have to resort to meds I can try catch the shrimp - if I can find them. Only two left, I've had them five years and...
  7. Thanks for the replies. Regarding meds, I`m...

    Thanks for the replies. Regarding meds, I`m worried about the possible affects on the shrimp, snails and pygmy corys, so I`d like to avoid them if possible.

    Should I be worried about it?
  8. Heat treating Ich - will my fish tolerate 86F?

    So, I've not seen Ich in my tank for 4.5 years. I quarantine new fish - and plants. The, one week ago today I added some new otos after only 6 days in the QT because the old filter stopped working....

    Here's the photo, about 30 seconds after putting them back into the tank (hope it posts ok). Cory is on the rock, half hidden behind the cichlid (head is just below the gill area). As I said, they...

    Figure I should give an update. Thanks for the advice. It all worked out in the end - at least for the Cockatoo, I have no idea about the pygmy cory. He (I believe it was a he - was one of the...

    Fish stuck in another fish's mouth

    My Cockatoo Cichlid has bitten off more than he can swallow. He is currently swimming slowly around the tank trying to dislodge a pygmy cory it tried to eat. The tail is sticking out about 4mm, and...

    I think I should clarify after re-reading - I'm talking about a double-red and a blue Apistogramma cacatuoides - different version of the same species, or something?
  13. Update time... so I picked up a pair of...

    Update time... so I picked up a pair of double-reds at the end of June. After 10 days in QT they settled in very well. The female soon picked her favourite shelter, kicking the pygmy corys out -...
  14. Plan was for GBRs - new option has appeared, I don't know if it'd work...

    I asked this in the SA Cichlid part of the forum - this may be a better area...

    QT is ready, and this afternoon (or I could delay 'til tomorrow) I'd like to pick-up a South American Dwarf Cichlid...
  15. Sorry, one more question to add to previous post:...

    Sorry, one more question to add to previous post:

    More reading, and Double Red Cacaruoides seem to be the same fish as Cockatoo cichlids. Looks as though full grown Amano shrimp will be OK, small...

    So, the QT is set-up, just need to add the seeded sponge from the main tank. Visited my LFS today - GBRs & Bolivian Rams, which are often available. But also have some very nice looking fish listed...
  17. Makes sense - I was just wondering because so...

    Makes sense - I was just wondering because so many sources say they can die so easily early on. Next stop is the LFS to see what species they have available, or can get. If anyone has any feedback...

    Thanks all.

    DK30 - power bar is now installed, thanks for the suggestion. Simple solutions are usually the best, too bad I didn't think of it before.

    And Xavier, that's a great way to get...
  19. Sensitive cichlids into a QT for two weeks - issues or tips?

    Iím looking for some colourful exhibits for my planted, established 37 gallon tank. I lost some fish recently (heater incident) including a pair of pearl gourami that looked great. Current...

    One mistake with big consequences...

    Since I last posted (quite some time ago) my tank has undergone some unplanned, self-inflicted changes. While I know some of you are going to say this is obvious, I thought I'd post a tip that may...

    Colourful female Pearl Gourami?

    Eight months ago I bought two young pearl gouramis, a male and a female. They've more than doubled their size, and the male is definitely a male. Colourful, long flowing fins, just like photos on...

    Nothing to add about potential harmful affects, but I do know what you mean by silly mistakes.

    Last time I broke down my QT I decided to try fit the job into a busy schedule. I took the heater...
