Re: Is there something wrong with my Angel? #31
Not really, I'm away for most of the day and don't get time until later in the evening. I'll keep an eye out for this as well.

Would it be worth doing a small water change?
The tank is a Juwel Lido 120 for what it's worth.

Re: Is there something wrong with my Angel? #32
Hmm seems something is up. He isn't swimming upright and is listing one way or the other. He also seems to be getting caught into the intake flow of the filter.

He was not long ago rubbing his right side against the side of the filter casing and his right fin was also clamped in..

Uh oh!

Did it a water test about 30-60 mins ago.

No ammonia, no nitrites but nitrates were there a little 20-40 ppm.

Can do a water change tomorrow if it might help.

EDIT**
Link to photos of him

Hope this isn't the end for him, I don't have another tank to quarantine him either...

Re: Is there something wrong with my Angel? #33
Ok that's a relief, thanks for your quick reply.
I'll keep an eye on it, haven't noticed him fighting any of the other fish so maybe from one of the ornaments/plants/gravel that it's happened with.

Is there something wrong with my Angel? #34
Hello,

The bottom vertical fin seems to have a bend in it. Should I be worried?

Chris

Re: Orange sunkist shrimp baby...how? #35
That's interesting...I've seen the female shrimp pregnant before, but never spotted any babies...could it be that the adult platies ate the young baby shrimp, or could they have been munched up in the filter?

I can see a lot of egg-like objects on my plants, assuming it's eggs from these guys!
I've got a few Nerite Snails too so it could be eggs from them...hoping it's the shrimp!

Thanks for your reply!

Orange sunkist shrimp baby...how? #36
Hello,

I have spotted a single baby shrimp in my freshwater setup...and this is alarming/interesting because I've read they need brackish water in order to hatch & survive...
Is that actually the case, or is it just less likely that they'd survive in a non-brackish environment?

Thanks,
Chris

Re: Whats wrong with my Platy? #37
Hi, sorry to hear about your Platys.
It's good that the fish seem to be helping your daughter though!

In my opinion, it looks like what I imagine fin rot to look like, at least from the second image you've shown.
Feel free to correct me other people...that's my thought anyway

Also, for what it's worth, I had a 30L Biorb with 6 Variatus Platys too, along with a total of 5 shrimp and 2 surprise snails, they lived in there for 8 months or so before I upgraded due to a platy population boom (they breed like mad!)

Applying the treatment is pretty much the only advice I can think of, which you already seem to have in hand, we had a bout of white spot which didn't notice a difference until a week or so, so hopefully you'll notice a difference soon! If possible, can you get a smaller tank to quarantine those infected fish?

As a side note, did you introduce all the fish into the tank at once? I was told not to add more fish than you've already got at a weeks interval...

Sorry I can't be of more help
Chris

Re: Hillstream loach? #39
Thanks for the info, that's interesting!

I've put another photo on this reply.
I do have another of him on the glass side on so you can see a flash of colour in the tail, if that would maybe help as well.

I do seem to get a bit of algae growing in my new tank, and he is much more active now than in the old one!

How many in a group would you say?

My tank is a Juwel Lido 120.

Hillstream loach? #40
Hi there,

I was hoping that someone is able to confirm what this plec is that I've got...I got it from Pets at Home around 8 months ago and he's been surviving ever since...they had it labelled as a "Hong Kong Plec"

I've done a bit of research, and it does look quite like a hillstream loach I thought.
I was doing a bit more investigating today for another unrelated fish and came across the "Borneo Sucker" which also looks very similar...

Can anyone offer their opinion on what it is please?

Thanks!
Chris
