    Pleco With White Fuzz Growth?

    My pleco who is about 8 years old (estimate) has some strange white growth on his rear head, both left and right sides. I've attached a video where you can see the growths move as he swims. The one side most prominent is about 1 inch long "thread" type growth. What is this? Any and all advice is...

    240 Gallon Co2 Needed Help

    I don't have it that high. I make sure my drop checker is green and that's at around 10 a second for me.

    240 Gallon Co2 Needed Help

    I use a bubble counter in my 210 as mentioned above. Easy to take a glance and see if my rate is where I want it. Yes it's fast but its manageable.

    240 Gallon Co2 Needed Help

    I was tagged in this thread so I'll share my setup. I have a 20lb cylinder which was about $100. I use the GLA GRO-1 Aquarium CO2 Regulator which I believe was $200. I also use the GLA 80mm atomic diffuser which was $50. Got a drop checker from Amazon for around $35.

    Giant Danio - Prevent Breeding?

    My fish vet suggested it may be "trauma and fibrosis formation" or something like lymphocystis.

    Bleeding Heart Tetra With White Growths

    Thank you for the very informative replies. The 6 tank-mates show 0 symptoms and they've been in the tank for a year now. They seem to avoid the one fish actually at times. Are they all likely dangerous to add to another tank? Should they remain quarantined indefinitely? Really wish there was...

    Bleeding Heart Tetra With White Growths

    Definitely fin rot is a factor. The pectoral fins are non existent at this point. Anal & caudal fins are about 20-30% intact. He's able to swim and eat just fine it seems though. The white "growths" appear smooth & uniform in their white color. Remember this has been going on for a year now. Mot...

    Bleeding Heart Tetra With White Growths

    Well to be honest what's seen in the video I shared is what I'm seeing and I don't know how else I'd describe it. They do change. If I give it a few days w/o observation there's often noticeable differences, "flare ups" almost. Times it's worse, and times it appears to maybe get 40%-50% better.

    Bleeding Heart Tetra With White Growths

    Hi! My original issue is mentioned here: New Fish With White Bump? Since then, the one main fish affected has passed, as of about 2 months ago. A second fish (as seen in attached video) is affected now and has been for a long while (at least a year). As mentioned in the previous thread many...

    Giant Danio - Prevent Breeding?

    The thing is all of my Danios have a strange white lump on their bottom lip. Appears to vary / change in size. Been there for at least 2 years now. Not sure if it's a slow moving disease or what, but they'd been treated with almost everything in the book with no luck. BC of this I'm hesitant to...

    Giant Danio - Prevent Breeding?

    I have 7 Bleeding Heart Tetra, if I put them in the tank would they eat the eggs as well? Would the Danios and the BHs get along?

    Giant Danio - Prevent Breeding?

    Hi. I currently have 8 Giant Danio in a 75g. some fake plants, medium sized river rock substrate and around 77 degrees. I have been noticing fry for weeks now every few mornings. A few dozen. They get eaten of course. One however is almost an inch long and will likely survive. My question is...

    New Fish With White Bump?

    Update: I'm STILL trying to treat the 8 Bleeding Heart Tetra for whatever they are suffering from. It is currently affecting two fish, as seen in attached video. I have tried many treatments, currently Cupramine. I've been dosing it for months. It seems to help at times, but it comes back. I...

    Api Mtk Results Varying?!

    This is an absolutely frustrating discovery. All this time testing with what may be entirely false readings. Never buy just one kit and trust it. I mean, I have 4 and they don't match!

    Api Mtk Results Varying?!

    Hey there. So let me sum up my latest issue. I've been using the API Freshwater Master Test Kit for years now. I always counted on it. Recently, when one of my test bottles (Ammonia) was running low, I purchased a 2nd complete kit. Out of curiosity I ran the test with new and old kits for...

    New Fish With White Bump?

    Update: BH Tetra white growths spreading. Is coming out from both gills. Top of head. Cloudy eye as well. And white circle on side. Also a second fish is showing a white spot on nose area. They’ve been treated with Kanamycin Sulfate, Fungus Cure, General Cure, Furan 2, Meth Blue, Mach Green and...

    Vet Says To Use Untreated Tap Water?

    It still involves catching and moving them, acquiring yet another tank, a smaller heater and another filter of some kind, I just don't have the ability, time or space for it. I need to treat in the current tank. Also, Dr dosed my meds for the 30g anyway. I really appreciate everyone support and...

    Vet Says To Use Untreated Tap Water?

    Some data from my water company... Also: I am disabled, catching the fish every 12 hours to switch tanks isn't something I can do. I need to take the chance with a conditioner.

    Vet Says To Use Untreated Tap Water?

    So I am currently running carbon in the filter to remove color from a Fungus Cure treatment. Then I will test the water to see if there is any BB present. Issue here is the 50-75% daily WC which will introduce more ammonia / chloromines. Who knows. I don't know anywhere around here to get RO...

    Vet Says To Use Untreated Tap Water?

    This vet is all I have to rely on. I've tried all my over the counter options as I said. I don't know what else to treat with. It's been extremely stressful on me. I really don't know what to do. Also from what I'm reading API Tap Water Condtioner does nothing to ammonia, whereas Ammo Lock...

    Vet Says To Use Untreated Tap Water?

    I really need to find a safe product to add that will detoxify or at least protect the fish from the 1ppm ammonia I'm detecting in my tap whilst not affecting the Oxy treatment. Ammolock? Not sure. Also, what if my API kit is detecting this ammonia but it's really chloromines? I have no way to...

    Vet Says To Use Untreated Tap Water?

    Wow this thread got very technical. Let me explain further what's going on here. I purchased 8 Red Eye and 8 Bleeding Heart. They all stayed in QT for 2 weeks in a 29g. They all were treated with the recommendation Cory from Aquarium Coop told me about. 1 dose Ich X and 1 dose EM. I realize...

    Vet Says To Use Untreated Tap Water?

    I should clarify I was using api meds in this temp hospital tank and I have no readings on my filters efficiency to process ammonia at the moment.

    Vet Says To Use Untreated Tap Water?

    Would another water dechlorinator be okay to use then? Tetra Aquasafe or API Tap Water Conditioner?

    Vet Says To Use Untreated Tap Water?

    Yeah it is! Gotcha. Thanks everyone for your input, appreciated.
  33. jojomo91

    Vet Says To Use Untreated Tap Water?

    Yes I totally can't afford bottled water even just for this treatment. I have to do 50-75% WCs in a 30 gal ten times. I have never done a water test the day after a WC, I really need to do that tonight to see how quickly my filter gets me to 0 ammonia.

    Vet Says To Use Untreated Tap Water?

    I'm not sure what's going on now. I guess I need to do some thinking.
  35. jojomo91

    Vet Says To Use Untreated Tap Water?

    I'm going to use a a dechlorinator regardless. Not sure which but I'll use one.

    Vet Says To Use Untreated Tap Water?

    Oxytetracycline. She said to use Prime is it makes me comfortable but recommends against it bc of possible reaction. My tap is 1-2ppm Ammonia I know that off the top of my head so I can't use nothing. Maybe another product?
  37. jojomo91

    Vet Says To Use Untreated Tap Water?

    Yeah I'm really unsure what to do. I suppose do what the vet says!

    Vet Says To Use Untreated Tap Water?

    I would assume so? No way of testing chlorine, chloramines ect.
  39. jojomo91

    Vet Says To Use Untreated Tap Water?

    I am currently giving a medicine to some fish in a hospital tank and my vet says to not treat my tap water with Prime just incase it would interact with the med. She said it is completely safe to do. Is this unheard of? This treatment requires daily water changes of 50% before redosing.

    New Fish With White Bump?

    UPDATE: Main tank seems fine. BH were treated with KS (6 doses) and Fungus Cure (4 doses). Noticed the bump got smaller after two doses of FC, but no change with future doses. Will attempt Meth Blue dip next. @Sarcasm Included

    New Fish With White Bump?

    Okay so to be clear I had all these fish together in the 210 and yesterday (Oct19) I added a dose of Kanamycin Sulfate to the 210. Now that the BH are in quarantine do I continue the Kanamycin in main tank since they already got a dose (as precaution) or just stop it?

    New Fish With White Bump?

    Update: got the 8 BHs in a 30g. Added Kanamycin and Furan 2.

    New Fish With White Bump?

    I am going to QT the BHs (all 8). Yesterday after not knowing what to do I added a dose of Kanamycin Sulfate to the main tank. Should I continue it? I don't have Meth blue or know how to do a "bath". I have access to the API meds and a few others including Kanamycin Sulfate. Also just...

    New Fish With White Bump?

    This is actually a two part problem. I purchased 8 Bleeding Heart and 8 Red Eye Tetra to add to my 210. A few of the BH had damaged fins, not sure if rot or from nipping. I used quarantine recommendations of 1 week with a single dose of EM and Ich X, but also added some Melafix. I added them...
