    Fry Advice

    Try adding more places to hide. I have always had a lot of fake plants and caves covered in algae, and have since added Hornwort as a live plant.

    This provides my fry with lots of hiding places,...

    Safe

    My Red Wag must be feeling pretty safe because she is not waiting too long between batches. I am trying to clean my tank and just when I think it is safe to remove the cloth bag from my siphon, more...

    Immaculate Conception

    I knew that Platys could do this any how, but I removed my lone male platy and another female to another thank a while ago, and my remaining female has given birth to two more separate batches of fry...
  4. Brine Shrimp

    Don't forget that Brine Shrimp are saltwater dwellers. They will need to be kept in a saltwater environment, just as they were hatched in one.

    I may be stating the obvious, but my son wanted to...

    Satellite Bluenoser

    I live in Edmonton now but my husband and I come from Nova Scotia. My parents, inlaws, and extended family live in Lower Sackville and Dartmouth in the greater Halifax area.

    Welcome aboard.

    pH

    My pH used to be about 8.1, but now it is steady at about 7.6. I did not actively do anything to reduce it, this just happened over time.

    Melafix and Pimafix are great treatments for something...

    Dropsy

    Bloated with scales sticking out? Sounds like dropsy. Check out the links in the sticky's in the "Fish Diseases" section of the forum.
  8. More

    So far up to six new fry, and still brazen, but they seem to be able to hide when they need to. I thought I had lost them all yesterday morning, but they all showed up later.

    Mom is quiet again...

    Second Net

    A simple solution is to have a second net. Use the shrimp net to herd the desired fish into a larger stationary net, then slowly raise net out of the tank using the shrimp net to block the exit.

  10. Another Batch of Fry for my Red Wag

    It seems that my Red Wag Platy has just had another batch of fry. So far I have seen two, but they are very brazen - swimming in the open where they can be eaten.

    I know from the last batch,...

    Still counting...

    I am amazed at how good these fry can hide, and how hard it is to count moving fish. I think I have at least ten fry, possibly more, all about the same size and growing fast.

    Awesome photos

    Nothing to add but to say that those are absolutely amazing aquarium photographs. I wish I could capture my fish like that (except without the Ich).

    Returning to Normal...

    I had to put my Danio on time out in my work tank - floated her in a bag full of water for a few hours (with timed water changes to keep oxygenation). When I released her, it was if she had become...

    Why is nothing ever simple???

    I have been doing water changes like crazy and even used Amquel to treat my newer water jugs to spead up the process and then I noticed something very peculiar.

    I tested my Ammonia when I got home...

    Biofilter Crash

    Thanks for the encouragement, and for the advice on the possible biofilter crash. I had heard of this possibility, but it has never happened to me before.

    Now that you mention it, it seems very...

    Ammonia Spike???

    I tested my water last night and the trend was definitely downward, approaching 0.6 on the Master Test Kit chart (not ppm)(I have a pH of 7.6 if that helps). But this morning, I tested again and it...

    Fish Tuberculosis

    Zebra Danio's are succeptable to Fish TB, which looks a lot like what that Zebra Danior has. Fish TB is defined by the hollow belly and deformity of the spine, as well as lesions, loss of scales and...

    Thank You.

    I have been doing this for a few years now, but that does not mean that I know everything or remember everything.

    Unless the fish you have are all fry, there is no way that a tank that size could...

    Ammonia

    I tested my water and ammonia is definitely the problem. I have not had a hint of ammonia in my tank for years, but the reading was a definite positive (at least 2.4 on the Master Test Kit). ...

    More susceptible...

    Some fish are more susceptible to certain diseases than others, but I do not know if that is the case here or not.

    Otherwise, they may just have a lower immune system for some reason - stressed?

    Other Fungus

    I vote for other fungus. Doesn't Velvet look like brown spots all over - similar to Ick only a different colour?

    Either way, it sounds like you need to treat it immediately. It if gets fuzzier,...

    As a temporary measure, I just dosed my tank with Amquel. It is supposed to reduce ammonia, nitrites and nitrates.

    Holding the course

    The fish are all still eating. They never miss a meal, even when I was feeding the extra meals for the fry.

    I have not tested my parameters since the flashing started, but will do that. My tank...
