    Need help with fish antibiotic for injured Angel

    Still alive. He looks healthy in every way but his eyes. He still can't see with either eye. I finally got him to eat some brine shrimp with an eye dropper. I had to corral him in s net and touch his mouth with globs of thawed shrimp. He is back in the big tank and I moved the other Angel pairs...

    Discussion about mods closing threads

    You asked for examples and this thread was one that came to mind for me. Treefork: Another opinion I have is this: We will never have a "productive" discussion about this. People will just get worked up one way or the other and the thread will be closed. So I bid you all good day and take my...

    I'm not talking about groups of people. I'm talking about a personal attack made by one person to another person on a public thread. Did you see the link I posted and read comments 19 and 22? So if this is my thread now can I close it. I could just take my ball and go home

    Discussion about mods closing threads

    My point was that the disagreements I was referencing took place in the thread for all to see. Look at the conversation in the link I posted. Is there any way that should have been said in the thread? I don't think it should have been said at all. To be fair I am responding to something that...

    He asked for examples of when he went off topic. He was the one that went off topic in the ASPCA thread. As far as which thread it was posted in, the thread was split up from the original thread. Sorry if I should have posted in the other thread. I was actually thinking if I was going to post I...

    No. I want Pirahna so bad too I've been researching it and I don't think it's a good idea for you or me. I'm not happy about it but oh well. The other thing to consider is they should be kept in a small school and when you get a bigger tank the one you have will be bigger than the new ones...

    Suggestion: An off topic post thread.

    I just went back and read through the thread again. https://www.fishlore.com/fishforum/fishkeeping-hot-topics/79147-keeping-fish-w-out-giving-them-what-they-need.html The OP asked about the ASPCA and fish. The fact that I compared what the ASPCA does now with terrestrial pets and what they...

    Wow! I better go back and read that thread again. That's not how I remember it at all. There was arguing? I asked about the "government" and I think someone else did too. I was hoping for an answer from the person or people who mentioned government. I don't know how anyone could expect you to be...

    Suggestion: An off topic post thread.

    Fishlore is supposed to be fun. I don't think people should have to keep scrolling back to the OP's post to make sure they have not strayed off topic.

    Discussion about mods closing threads

    Perhaps the person moderating the thread should not participate in the discussion. Imagine if that happened in political debates or even high school debates? In the thread that Meenu is referring to I'm guessing, correct me if I'm wrong, that Ken was asked to close the thread. I say that because...

    Help 6 dead fish in 3 weeks?

    It sounds like a mini spike. I've done that by forgetting to add the water conditioner during a water change but any number of things could have caused it. The solution for a mini cycle would be to increase water changes to keep the ammonia down. You're already doing that. I would get a nitrate...

    Discussion about mods closing threads

    I could not agree more. I understand that threads need to be searchable by topic but veering off topic here and there is how a conversation works. What I find to be rude (maybe the wrong word) is for a moderator to join in a debate, state their opinion as if it were fact and then close the...

    Need help with fish antibiotic for injured Angel

    Thanks Ken and Carol for checking up on my Angel fish. He is still in the 10 gallon. The eye that has been white seems like it might be ever so slightly clearer. The other eye still looks like it is essentially gone. The water was a bit cloudy when I got home today so I did a huge water...

    Question: All these various conditioners/chemies?

    I misread your original post. I thought you were saying that you don't use a water conditioner. If you are getting ammonia spikes you are not cycled. That's the benefit of the nitrogen cycle. If your tank were cycled you would be getting nitrates when you were due for a water change and not...

    Any suggestions?

    They can be. I have a school of Rummy Nose with my angels and have never had them eat them. I had a school of 12 lamp eyes at one point that did fine with the angels too. I ended up getting rid of them because they just stayed in the current of the filter output and never swam around. At one...

    hex tank dimensions

    Thanks Lucy I looked at the links but I'm confused. How are there three measurments listed for a hex tank? It seems like a hex should just have two measurements: High and the length of one side. They don't really have a side-to-side and front-to-back measurment because all the sides are the...

    hex tank dimensions

    I knew someone would ask that. I can't find the tape measure. I just remember that the sides are 7 inches from when I measured it the last time I tried to figure this out. Are you asking because you have a hex with 7 inch sides? That's good enough for me. How many gallons is yours?

    Does anyone know the dimentions of a 10 gallon hex? The sides of this one are 7 inches. I'm using it to medicate a fish and need to be sure of the gallons.

    I read through those threads. I haven't given much thought to getting him to eat. I do have minced garlic. It's for me though lol. I've never used garlic for my fish but I will consider that. I moved him to a small tank. It's next to the big one. Maybe if the pair can see each other they will...

    PH 8.2, Should I Adjust?

    Most fish will adjust, as you probably have read, but 8.2 is a bit high. If your fish are ok you could just leave it. If you want to lower it you could add more wood or use peat or peat pellets, either in your filter or to treat the water before you use it. I'd stay away from products that...

    I think your BN Pleco will be fine in your tank. They only get to around 6 inches. That may be a grey area so if you have had a conversation with someone who advised you against keeping your pleco in your tank I don't want to step on their toes. There aren't really different kinds of Angels...

    I'm in the same boat. I don't know what to get because I've never needed the mess before. Normally injuries from their little territorial skirmishes heal in a day or two in their own. I'm heading to petsmart to see what they have in a little while. Thank yiu

    Question Spotted Green Puffer & Pleco? Tankmates?

    No problem. It may be a good idea to think about rehoming the pleco. He will grow to a size that is bigger than the tank you have now. I'll let others advise you on the tiger barbs because I've never had them but I know they get to be about 3 inches. The pleco is a giant poop machine and with...

    30 Gallon Tank New 30 Gallon hex tank

    If it were a mated pair then I'd say that would be perfect. The thing is with young small fish like you have it will be a while before you know if you have pairs. If they end up being a pair or if you end up with two that aren't aggressive towards each other then two in a 30 hex would probably...

    30 Gallon Tank New 30 Gallon hex tank

    Welcome to Fishlore! I hate to be the bearer of bad news but 5 Angels just won't work in a hex tank. They need to establish their own territory as in one side of the tank or the other. In a tall tank they just can't do that. I hate that they sell Angels that small. They are just too small and...

    Question: All these various conditioners/chemies?

    In a heavily planted tank, you cannot assume it is not cycled when no nitrates are present, especially as the OP is completing water changes every 5-6 days. I looked at the pictures of the OP's tanks and the fact that they are both very new. With only a few plants and no water conditioners...

    Question Spotted Green Puffer & Pleco? Tankmates?

    Welcome to Fishlore! Green Spotted Puffers are brackish so they need marine salt in there tank. A Pleco can't be in a tank with salt so I'm sorry but they will absolutely not work together. Dwarf Puffers are fresh water so they might be a possibility.

    Question: All these various conditioners/chemies?

    My planted tanks have very low nitrates because they are all very heavily planted too. If you are getting all zeros then your tank is not cycled at all. The fact that you have occasional ammonia spikes is evidence of that. If you are not using a water conditioner then the chlorine in your...

    That's what the instructions say to do for the micron cartridges that come with Marineland's Magnum filters. The micron filter on these really does polish the water. I don't use mine all the time and I do move it from tank to tank. There are other filter materials that are referred to as...
