:-[hi guys, I just can't seem to get it right. I bought a thermometer and all readings are ok, buy my black Molly girl is sick with bladder problems. I already lost 3 to it. She is struggling to breath and I want to spear her the pain. I just can't bring myself to do it
I found clove oil at the natural food store if that will help. I couldn't bear to watch one of my first fish in the 10 gallon die, so my mom did it and she said it didn't look at all in pain... Sorry about your molly.
Hey guys thanks for your support, unfortunatelly it was too late jdhef and she was dead in the morning. I'm determined to get a q tank now. Of course my other black Mollie seems to be coming down with ich. It's a big spot though, not a bunch of little ones, do I treat the hole tank? Or do I set up a tapperware for now and treat him alone?. He seems happy and lively, but again so did the others
AWW im sorry also for the loss
at this point, see if you can find some prime or amquel+ to get daily water changes going...the tank needs to be cycled and water kept prestine for the other fish......this will need to be done for a few weeks...also, picking up a liquid master test kit will give you better readings ....test strips arent reliable and probably not giving you correct stats of the tank.....good luck!
Prime is a water conditioner that removes chlorine, chlorimine, heavy metals etc like all of the other water conditioners. But it also (as does Amquel+) detoxes ammonia and nitrites making these toxic compounds safe for the fish while still making them available to feed the benificial bacteria you are trying to cultivate.
So you would use it with every water change. And since it only detoxes for 24 hours, you need to do daily water changes with the Prime to keep the ammonia and nitrites detoxed until you cycle competes.
