    I didn't know Stability was also made by Seachem, sorry.

    I would have edited my post, but you can only edit a post 15 minutes or so after it's posted.

    Seems to be just a bacteria booster:



    Top Fin stuff doesn't have the greatest reputation though. Lots of people here swear by Tetra SafeStart. I used Big Al's Bio-Support, it seemed to help...

    But wait a second, aren't we talking about two different products here, with two different functions?

    Stability, Prime and AmQuel+ are detoxifiers. They remove/sequester ammonia, nitrites and...

    Thank you Little Embers!

    We had him for 6 months. He was already an adult, so he was presumably already a few months old when we got him.

    It could very well be that with all the inbreeding, 9...

    He hung in for a few months more but I had to put him down today.

    I tried everything under the sun.

    - Epsom Salts

    - Jungle Parasite Clear tabs

    - Methylene Blue

    I know I'm going to get skeptics and disbelievers, but I will never use wild-caught food again.

    A few days after my last mosquito larvae feeding, disease broke out. First it was fin rot then one...

    I have had to use this DIY Melafix for the second time, this time to quell several mild cases of fin rot. I mentioned this before, the main problem with this DIY Melafix is the lack of an...

    These ones are just too tiny, they're long enough but not wide enough, they could easily slip through the mesh of the net I have. Maybe I should give it a try, scooping them using a cup is a pain.

    An update - since I first posted this, I haven't seen a single mosquito larva. I guess mosquito control efforts in the vicinity by the municipality paid off.

    But yesterday I spotted two!

    Nitrates should be under 20, do water changes until it is.

    Further update - I took that article along with me and found some Methylene Blue which was HIGHLY recommended in the article - recommended over Furan-2.

    You know, that is more and more what it's sounding like...the conditions listed on the back of the Parasite Clear package just don't match his symptoms.

    Update...

    He's still hanging in there. I don't think there's been a huge improvement yet. His bloat has gone down but he is still bloated. Yesterday just after adding the Parasite Clear I...

    I got some Parasite Clear. Indeed, it prominently displays on the box that it contains Praziquantel. I've put half a tab in the hospital tank (it's 5 gallons).

    Ah, thanks very much for this! I'd have to drive fairly far to get the Prazipro, Parasite Clear is available locally.



    Thanks - I don't have corys yet but might one day.

    Actually I've done a bit of research and it didn't take long to find that a specific treatment for worms is Praziquantel, AKA Hikari Prazipro X. I was worried that these treatments would be...

    I'm kind of surprised this has popped up again, my gravel is very clean now. I do 50% water changes a week and I clean the gravel right down to the glass bottom.

    Has anyone made any yet?

    There's an obvious problem - oil and water don't mix! You end up with a glob of tea tree oil floating on the water. You can shake it up - it gets all cloudy and foamy,...
  22. Guppy bloat - constipation or bacterial/fungal infection?

    The last guppy I lost got bloated (to the "pine cone" stage), then distorted - his spine gradually bent in two directions (down and to one side). Finally one day I found him on the bottom unable to...

    That's the second best way, it may lead to a mini-cycle but it shouldn't be bad. What would be even better is to use old filter media in the new filter, but then you have to make sure your present...
