Plants vs Goldfish #32
Hey guys,

I wanna get some plants for my coldwater fancy tank as they have finally eaten the last of the plants I have in there.

Just wanted to know has anyone actually found a plant that a goldfish won't eat... any suggestions appreciated

Re: Bogwood causing havoc I think!! #34
AArrgghh I just typed a whole page out in answer and it didnt update so ill keep this short

As its a new fish it may have been iffy when you bought it, you can't always tell when its in the shop and transporting them home/putting them in a new tank etc. does cause a lot of stress on top of it all.
You still haven't told us your water readings/set up or other tank mates so assuming that all OK you could just try and add some melafix, this is a mild all-natural botanical remedy... I use it each time I add new fish as a precaution, the fish isn't acting normal though so there is something wrong, id keep a close eye on him for any other signs of illness if u don't have an airstone make sure your filter is breaking the waters surface... you could also try and tempt him to eat with some live food if u can get hold of it - I hope hes OK

Re: Bogwood causing havoc I think!! #35
As you boiled the bogwood this should have killed any nasties on it.

Sounds like this is a new fish, how long have you had the fish and what else has been added to the tank recently? Do you quarantine? Is there an air stone in the tank?
Any signs of illness - bloating, sticky out scales, gasping any rot or fungus - have you seen it poo recently, if so what was it like?

Re: Bogwood causing havoc I think!! #36
What do u have in your set up?
Have you tested your water for all the usual suspects which could be making the Ram act that way?
Was the tank matured before you added the fish... sorry if these are basic questions not sure how experienced you are

Re: neon tetra #37
Have you any other fish in your tank with the gourami Aadil, did you not buy some danios for it? If so how many fish are in your tank at the moment?

Re: Bogwood causing havoc I think!! #38
Hi pippin and welcome to FK.

The tannins which are turning your water brown are harmless to your fish so dont be tempted to sacrifice any of your bio sponges for carbon just to get rid of it as this will do more harm than good.

Keep your carbon 'fresh' by changing it regulary and this combined with water changes will eventually clear your water.
