Thread: Mandy's 130g Community Tank
02-15-2013, 05:50 PM #211
Thank you everyone. I'm feeling a little better today. :) Not much energy, but I'm getting there.
NOW TO THE ISSUES
I had to put down my smallest angel today. He was stuck to a different filter when I got up. :(
Next, when I got out of bed to turn on the lights in the tank, BOOM cloudy water.....
Nothing out of the ordinary.
My husband DID spend most of yesterday cleaning the kitchen (connected to the living room with tank). I'm worried that maybe lysol got in it or something. In any case all fish are okay except the one I had to put down.
I'm doing a 50% W/C at the moment.
Why do I have to be sick????????????????????? Bleh...130g: 4 Angelfish, 2 Roseline Sharks, 12 Conga Tetras, 5 Kuhli Loaches, 1 Otocinslus, 1 Corydora

Sorry about the angel. =/ Did he get torn up from the filter? Can you post a pic of the cloudy water?

No, he didn't et torn up. This was about the 5th time he's gotten stuck. First it was just the AC70, then last night my husband said he was stuck to a smaller one. This morning he was stuck to the small one again. I can only conclude that something was apparently wrong with him. At any rate he was swimming any more, so I put him out. :(
As for pics I'm pretty sure I'm back down for the day. The emergency W/C really sapped what energy I had gained. If the water is still cloudy tomorrow I'll take a pic.
I guess I'll just keep a good check on my params until this clears up.130g: 4 Angelfish, 2 Roseline Sharks, 12 Conga Tetras, 5 Kuhli Loaches, 1 Otocinslus, 1 Corydora

Ahh, that's a bummer. Just a weak fish. Probably didn't handle the shipping to the store well and then the 2nd move to another tank. Not much you can do about that.
I wonder if the cloudy water is an algae bloom.
Feel better soon!

Uh oh, sorry you're sick. And sorry about your angel. What coloring did he have? Was he a white or a stripey?~Manna

He was a small and stripey. The Serpaes didn't have a favorite to pic on. They just did whoever wsa convienant. They've stopped as far as I can tell. I see no evidence on the angels either.130g: 4 Angelfish, 2 Roseline Sharks, 12 Conga Tetras, 5 Kuhli Loaches, 1 Otocinslus, 1 Corydora

Whatever the problem was seems to have cleared up for the most part. As someone who looks at the tank very often, I can see a small cloudiness. I doubt that anyone else would pick up on it though.
I just read over yesterday's post... Please excuse all the misspellings. I wasn't really all there. Haha!130g: 4 Angelfish, 2 Roseline Sharks, 12 Conga Tetras, 5 Kuhli Loaches, 1 Otocinslus, 1 Corydora

Just spent about 15 minutes laying in front of the tank and I noticed some hairy green algae on the glass........ Lol, you guys were right!
Dosed heavily with Excel. Good grief....
Just as a little update on my health, I'm back at about 90%. I'm good enough to to work (I work from home) so I think we're all clear now. Thanks for all the wel wishes!130g: 4 Angelfish, 2 Roseline Sharks, 12 Conga Tetras, 5 Kuhli Loaches, 1 Otocinslus, 1 Corydora
