    I Might Give Up...is This Columnaris

    thank you both @bitseriously & @mattgirl :emoji_green_heart::emoji_sparkling_heart: I'll update with any significant changes. Tiana's fish is Luci in this tank so she'll keep an eye on them when she feeds while we're gone (btw, we're going scuba diving in 9ºC water off Stewart Island down...

    no, luci (firemouth) is a tweenie. not a baby but not a teen yet if that makes sense? if she were a person, she'd be 11-12yo. the reason im not as concerned as I should be about infection is because I only moved the baby from the breeder net in this tank a week ago. for some reason I expected...

    the baby is not as long as a neon/ cardinal but a bit taller if that makes sense? otherwise similar size to the size of neon they sell in fish stores...

    Tank Cycling With Already Cycled Media?

    here's the low down: your bacteria colony only grows to support the amount of food it has available. so your colony has grown to support the number of fish currently in your 36g & the amount of food you feed them (= how much waste they produce) removing any media is likely to cause some mini...

    I never properly responded to you, my friend. I actually don't mind if we end up not having sterbai or any Cory cats in this tank and maybe add a few golden barbs instead or leave it under stocked. I'm most gutted that we can't order a replacement EBJD until we figure this out. and I don't...

    I dont have mblue & don't have an available QT atm. I could possibly move the baby Odessa from our 21L to this potentially infected bowfront to free that QT up but then it might be eaten or infected. how big should baby fish get before they join a tank?

    Tank Cycling With Already Cycled Media?

    if the OP cycled with pure ammonia up to a high level in a fishless cycle, then it's possible the bb colony is robust enough. I would say the answer to the OPs question highly depends on the level of food source/ammonia load that they cycled their tank with never a black and white answer with...

    Kh/ph Crashing

    hi! so I might be able to help because we're on rainwater with 0kH/0gH. our tank crashed on new years and we lost 12/13 fish... 2 succumbed a month after because the ammonia spike to over 2 just took longer to kill the poor things. what are you using to buffer? we use 2 x fish safe mesh bags...

    I wish you could see the photos. . 4/6 remaining Cories appear to have perfect fins & are spawning & loving life. 2/6 have fins that are ragged & even appear like the front hard fin cartilage is completely separated from the rest of that fin like the fin has disintegrated.

    oh no! I'm so sorry! you should start a thread with photos and feel free to link to mine because obviously I'm not the expert in treating ... but I'm curious now so feel free to post a photo in this thread of your poor fish...or post a link in this thread to your own. ... I have no issues...

    I'm in NZ. we have limited availability of treatments. I haven't checked what I can import on line but I do have Furan-2. are you advising against that treatment? again I'm happy to research what's available on line if that's the best treatment but that will delay treatment until it arrives &...

    I Might Give Up...is This Columnaris

    I tend to agree... the only alternatives are either 1. fin rot (but they've been in pristine water parameters since we had them with one blip to .25 ammonia for 12 hours as we were adding stock) or 2. badly nipped fins that got secondary infection. do you happen to understand why...

    that's such good advice about catching them! thank you.

    So after a thorough inspection this morning, we can't see any pale spots on any fish at all. I wanted to post photos of the sterbai so I can get all of your views on what we're dealing with. the barbells look fine @bitseriously .... but the fins are a different story for two of them. the rest...

    *we are not worthy gif* I knew there was a reason I was worried about salt: OUR SNAILS! thank you! so, I'll go to the pharmacy because you can't get hydrogen peroxide just anywhere in nz believe it or not. like you hafta go to the pharmacy for nail polish remover, so...pain in the arse.
