Re: Nitrite emergency #31
Water changes to get that down are essential - daily or more if needed. You can protect the fish from the effects of the nitrite between changes by double-dosing Seachem Prime, or by adding a little salt to the water.

Re: Sanitising hospital tank #33
Clean thoroughly with a 1:20 bleach/water solution. Rinse well and allow to dry completely before refilling.

Re: Lump on fish head #34
That looks likes some kind of tumour. It may be benign in which case unless it grows so much that it interferes with his eye, he should be able to live with it. If it grows over the eye you'll need to find a fish vet to remove it.

Re: Is my fish pregnant? #35
Probably.....she looks to have a gravid spot, and most female livebearers are pregnant by the time you buy them

Re: Surplus Ancistrus #36
Try asking at your local fish shop; they may be willing to take them off your hands. Also you could try advertising on Aquarist Classifieds.

Re: Treating parasites - Aquacare Antiparasite #37
You can help with oxygen in the meantime by pointing your filter output at the top of the tank so it ripples the surface.

Re: Treating parasites - Aquacare Antiparasite #38
From the ingredients it should be a safe medication so I'm surprised you lost a fish. Have you tested for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate? Did you use the correct dose? You need to leave it in for a few days so as the remaining fish are lethargic I wonder if the medication has depleted the oxygen in the tank. Adding an air stone may help.

Re: ...and what is it? #39
That's not nerite eggs. Nerite eggs are lager and shaped like sesame seeds. I would think that's some kind of fungus.

Re: Planting depth of pond plants? #40
I would go with the advice provided as you're more likely to have success.
