Re: Help! Red/grey bump on goldfish #41
Fingers crossed that the additional water changes help and promote healing. Do update us on how she gets on.

Re: Help! Red/grey bump on goldfish #42
Hi.
Yes, she's a lovely fish. She had a poor start in life where she won at a fairground. Not a practice I agree with. Had her for three years'
Thanks for the advice, I'll do a water change ever two/three days.
Not sure if it's good or bad but the grey bit got bigger over the last two days but fell off when she swam up for her feed this evening. Pinkish/reddish underneath but no noticable hole.

Looking for timely replies here

We do our best to respond as soon as we possibly can but please appreciate that there aren't many users on here nowadays and we do this voluntarily in our own time around other aspects of our lives, and may not always have the capacity to respond.
For German degrees hardness 14 or 250 CaCO3/ppm, I'll have a think and reply when I can.
Edited to add: I've had a look and see that its footprint is 45x38cm which will restrict your choice considerably. You would be *just* within range of celestial pearl danios (90-268ppm) or a male betta (18-268ppm), though.

Re: Stocking ideas very hard water and square tank #44

Often for the more interesting killis you need to buy and hatch eggs yourself - I just hatched a batch of Nematolebias papilliferus eggs and have 23 fry out of 30 eggs so it can be a very effective way of getting an unusual species at very low cost, or join one of the killi groups and try to source the ones you like from its members.

Re: Stocking ideas very hard water and square tank #45
Some of those look fantastic. Once again the problem seems to be getting hold of them So there are fish which fit my situation but they seem to be impossible to find.

Re: Hard water tropicals for 85 litre tank #46
Anyone?

Looking for timely replies here as I've got a couple days off before going back to work so ideally I'd like to get the tank stocked Wednesday.

I forgot to mention pH is 8 and gH is around 14.

Many thanks

Re: Stocking ideas very hard water and square tank #47
Aphanias species and some others from the African lakes will be OK in hard water.

Re: Stocking ideas very hard water and square tank #48
Apart from the Empire Gudgeon are there any other killifish which would be suitable for my water and tank size ? Just trying to get a bit of a mixture across the tank.

Hard water tropicals for 85 litre tank #49
Hi there

What would be the best recommendations please for a Aqua One oakstyle 85l tank?

I had 11 Harelquin Rasbora in there but they were very nervous and would start freaking out every time I approached the tank; they're now in my 125l and are much better for it as they don't seem as bothered by me or the other fish.

I have bog wood and gravel in the 85l and the filter is a Eheim experience 150.

Any thoughts?

Sorry to read about that but thanks for the update.
Out of interest, what are the list of ingredients on the Interpet Swimbladder treatment? I used it myself many years ago but no longer have the bottle but am keen to see how it compares with eSHa 2000's ingredients.


Composition is:

Formaldehyde 2000mg/100ml
Bronopol 1045mg/100ml
Benzalkonium chloride 500mg/100ml
