Temperature went over 88F again. Damage appeared to have spread to left pectoral fin. Changed water and started erythromycin treatment last night.
Sorry, busy days until at least Thursday. In the mean time, what preparations are recommended in case of a mini cycle or other problems? Does Safe (powdered version of Prime) interfere with its...
It is not recommended to use ammonia containing surfactant because the surfactant may remain and harm fish.
I was interested in how madagascariensis' betta did in particular but thanks for the general idea.
I did an 80% water change last night. Not adding any more Paraguard. I'm just wondering what to...
I came home today to check on Tiger and she picked up a bunch of dead snails and spat them in my face. It's like she's trying to tell me something.
I took a closer look, and LOTS OF MTS SNAILS ARE...
Changed water and dosed Paraguard.
Based on logged data, nitrate concentrations are approximately:
20ppm before water changes
10ppm after water changes
However, there were long periods where...
Thanks! think I'll try paraguard next and erythromycin as the last resort.
Read mixed reviews about side effects on loaches and snails but nothing is risk-free.
I stopped testing regularly after...
Perhaps it's dependent on how fresh the bottle is. If the bacteria is dead it's useless.
Have you tested your tap water? Sometimes there are nitrates in tapwater.

Here is data:
Fin rot with black splotches on left pelvic fin. First noticed on Sun. 2015-08-09. 3 doses of kanamycin later not cured. What next?
(in a rush right now, data to come later)

- Finished metronidazole treatment. The holes are still there.
- Another strawberry plant died. The spider mites have multiplied and are causing massive damage. The plants must have come...

- Finished course of treatment, no improvement noted. (should have been 10 days, but I missed a few so it became 13 days)
- Also began dosing Melafix (in water only) on day 5, also without...

I forgot to weigh the food by itself, just did that now. If anyone's been wondering what's the average mass of a Hikari Algae Wafer, well there you go.

Sorry I was too busy last week, didn't have time to calculate and start treatment. Did increase frequency of water changes to 2-3 times a week instead of 1x/week.
Several things I ordered a while...

Carbon: Yes I rinsed the carbon thoroughly. Which reminds me, it's almost time for the first carbon change anyway (6 weeks), might as as well take it out and begin treatment.
But first I still...

Oh yeah the tilapia's name is Tiger and I'm quite sure she's female. The yoyo loach doesn't have a name and I don't know its sex.
I've read some of that thread, there are indeed some success...

I understand half life, that's the time it takes for half of something to decay. So if you start with, for example, 20mg/L and the half life is 8 hours, after 8 hours there would be 10mg/L left, then...

I would also like to express my thanks.
The free, personalized sharing of knowledge, I can't begin to

Oops, assuming the fish eats 1% body weight that would be 100mg/kg. Sorry about that, I was looking at the Wet Web article at the same time.
I plan to take measurements in 3 dimensions...

For hole-in-the-head disease, what is the dosage rate when treating BOTH food and water at the same time? In my search results, different sites are giving different numbers. What is the most...

-Strawberries tasted good.
-Plants sending out runners, going to root these in water instead of dealing with...
Close enough. The idea is to constantly feed ammonia into a container full of bio media.
I was thinking sponge filters at first, but air pumps make noise so now I'm thinking maybe ceramic media with...
