Persistent white spot? #12
Hi everyone, first post here as I amgenuinely lost with this challenge.
Approx 3 weeks ago bought a shoal of black emperor tetras. One died within 24 hours, but one other has been permanently ill since. Within two days this fish in question developed white spots, which looked like a classic case of white spot. Therefore I have treated for the white spot. However I have now completed two full treatment cycles, and this one fish persists with one or two spots. It has not affected any other fish and this one black emperor tetra also hides all the time and is badly discoloured.

Despite the appearance could these spots be anything else?

Re: Clear ammonia was NOT... #13
Omg! You’re brilliant! He’s already dealing with cycling issues! Duh!
But it would be so much better for him with the help the filtration etc.


I will do that today!

Re: New Guppies attacking other fish #14
Thanks for the response. Couple hours after posting this i realised guppies can interbreed with mollies and that would explain why they chased them so i don't think there is much of a risk of damage to either fish but to be safe i removed 2 of the 4 male guppies and replaced them with 6 female guppies and it seemed to have fixed the issue :)

Re: Clear ammonia was NOT... #15
Hi

I've just been reading back over your posts and realised your Betta is currently in a filterless bowl on which you're doing partial daily water changes to control ammonia. In this case, rather than cycling the new filter/tank with ammonia I would move the Betta in and let him cycle it. You'll need to do daily water changes to control ammonia/nitrite while the tank cycles, but you're doing that anyway so overall he'd be better off in the new tank as he'd have more space and water circulation.

Re: Clear ammonia was NOT... #16
I completely emptied my 5 gallon tank and rinsed everything to remove the LA’s totally (NOT) Awesome ammonia. I rinsed the filter media, the gravel and live plants. Then I rinsed and scrubbed the tank itself. I put everything back together including fluval stratum and the rinsed gravel and filled it with clean dechlorinated water. I then placed my plants and completed the fill with more dechlorinated water. So, now I’m back to square one.

But my ammonia won’t arrive for 9 more days! Do I just wait or is there something I should do?

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Neon tetra growth #17
That looks more like some kind of tumour to me in which case there's nothing you can do. You may want to try either Esha 2000 or Waterlife Myxazin in case it's bacterial.

Neon tetra growth #19
Hi guys,

And nice to meet you since I am new to the forum! :)
Would really appreciate some input from you for one of my neon tetras. It has developed a red growth on its mouth (see picture attached). It has actually grown more within the last week.

I bought Melafix for bacterial infections but haven't seen any improvement in the last 3 days.

Have you come across anything like this before and do you have any advice?

Many thanks,

Corinna

Re: Tank size #20
Yes, you'll see from this https://www.fishkeeping.co.uk/articles ... -size-life-expectancy.htm and the more updated http://injaf.org/aquarium-fish/the-go ... t-size-tank-for-goldfish/ what size of a tank is really required for that number of fish.
