Re: further to unidentified attachment on tail fin #31
FURTHER TO EARLIER QUERY"unidentified attachment on tail fin"
---
The betta also has a similar attachement on the dorsal fin.
They both look like little stick on car aerials.
The water is: amonia 0 Nitrite 0, Nitrate around 5ppm ( that is the testtube looks closer to5 than zero)
I have not introduced any new animals or water plants.
The only other thing I have done is: when replacing the filtre media pack i also retained the old filter pack in the adjacent space in the box. Reasoning that without the old bacteria the new pack would need cycling. Tank is Interpet Edge Glow

Re: Film on water surface #32
Just to add, increasing surface agitation by directing the filter outlet upwards or by adding an air pump will break up the film.

Re: starting new tank - doing fishless cycle but when to add plants? #33
If you're going for the fully planted look with high-output lighting, CO2 etc., use a planting substrate. For the easier plants and a less intensive set up, root tabs under gravel/sand are perfect.

Re: Film on water surface #34
A film on the water surface is often caused by oils from fish foods and possibly from other products used in the tank.

Re: Sick gldfish with popeye #35
I would recommend the Kanaplex rather than the Voogle. I have used Voogle for more minor issues but what you describe sounds like a bacterial infection which Kanaplex seems to be for, so I'd definitely opt for it to give the fish the best possible chance. (I haven't personally used it but have used eSHa 2000 and Waterlife Myxazin. However, Kanaplex seems to be for the same conditions.)

Re: unidentified attachment on tail fin #36
I'm seeing a black mark on the tail fin plus foliage/planting - but maybe someone else will be able to see better what you're referring to. In the meantime, what are your current results for ammonia, nitrite and nitrates? The reason for the question is that this may help work out what the black mark is on the tail fin.

It may be worth placing an advert on www.aquarist-classifieds.co.uk too. Good luck.

Sick gldfish with popeye #39
Hi, Ive rescued 3 goldfish 2 days ago,they were in a very neglected of about 70L. One of them is much bigger then the others and hes sems healthy,hes active and eating,the only thing he has is a small growth on his lip. The other 2 arent look so well,they both smaller and both of them when they try to eat spit the food after 3 sec ,im pretty sure they arent really eating at all. In addition one of them has severe pop eye in both of his eyes. They are in my quarantine with a good filter and good water quality. I have kanaplex and a natural med called Voogle by easy life. What do you reccomend on doing? should i start treatment with these meds? Do you have other reccomended meds?
thank you

Urgent Help Needed - ESSEX #40
Hi,

I am new to the forum so hello to you all!

I run an aquatics shop in Essex. I have had four large (just under 2ft) Pacus dumped at my work. They are currently in my display tank; 6ft x 2ft x 2ft - They need to be rehomed urgently.

It was either they get put into my tank, or left outside in the buckets that they were dumped in. Any help to get these into new homes asap would be greatly appreciated.

I have spoken to London Zoo, London SeaLife, Southend SeaLife and all are full with no space to rehome.

Regards,

Brad
