Re: Fin Rot Problem HELP! #71
Ok thanks again

I've added airation now too.

Should I feed them as normal?
Best Regards

Re: Fin Rot Problem HELP! #72
Ok thanks fish lady.

Do I need to atop the treatment for a day or anything or just carry on?
Should I be feeding them as normal?
My LDS said the the DG would only grow to 4cm as its a female is that not correct?

Will airating the water help?
Best Regards

Fin Rot Problem HELP! #73
About 5 days after adding 3 Steel Blue Killifish i notived that my cherry barbs had bits of there tails missing. after posting on here i was advised my Fish lady (thanks) that it was Fin Rot as well as nipping.

Since then i started a course of the waterlife myaxine and have removed the 3 killifish but probably stupidly added 2 more cherry barbs and one female dwarf blue gourami.

I'm now on day 5 of the treatment and the Fin Rot still seems to be present in the Cherry Barbs (none others were affected). What should i do now???

I've just took reading and they are

Ammonia 0
Nitrite 0
Nitrate 10/20
Temp 25

My tank is a 60 litre with 8 cherry barbs, 4 otos and 1 dwarf blue Gourami. i do a 25% water change every week though admitaddly i do struggle at hoovering the gravel - but do my best. The next water change is due on Monday

EDIT:- there is currently no airation but i am going to get some put in today - i trust that this will also help?
Best Regards

Re: Compatability Problems #74
Thanks Fish Lady.

I've decided to take the Killifish Back to the shop, who has thankfully agreed to take them as all the barbs were fine before the killis arrived.

Ive seen the barbs being chased around by both the female & male killifish so my only conclusion is that they are stressed because of this which has made them more suseptable to fin rot.

Would that be a logical explanation?

Such a shame as i Love the killifish

Re: Compatability Problems #75
Thanks fish lady. I've already started on day 2 now.

Should the fish be 'repaired' by the 5th day of treatment or how do I know if the treatment has worked?
Best Regards

Re: Compatability Problems #78

Re: Compatability Problems #79
Thanks fish lady.

Am I right to dose for 5 days and should the fish be 'repaired' by then?

Re: Compatability Problems #80
Right, I've just done the water change and added the waterlife myxazin which has turned the water green. It says to treat on days 1234&5 so I will, after the 5th day should it of all cleared up?
How do I then remove the myxazin?
Best Regards
