Hello Members, for about 3-4 weeks now i have had a UV Filter going in the pond, the water has cleared a little, but not very much, i can just about see the orange on the kois lol, my x partner put a gazebo over the pond to see if it cleared quicker, does anybody know if it would be better if i took the gazebo down? does nt the sun need to get to the UV bit of the filter, im confused.com
I thought tropical fish keeping would be easier than just my fancy goldfish and lion heads, boy was i wrong :( i have found my male fighter dead and half eaten, and now one of my female guppies and another disapeared, presumed dead, i have now put the guppies (2) of, into another tropical tank with loaches and 2 awful crabs, what was killing them?
Thanks for replying EagleC, the fighter was fine on Saturday 15th, and i noticed it gone two days ago, no remains, absolutely nothing, i must get rid of the crabs i think, thanks again for advice, and thank god for this site :) Karen
Thanks Violet :) my stock on profile is the same except the crabs, 1 fighter and 1 silver dollar, best change profile eh :) i think i will have to take the crabs back to the shop, i dont like them, they are in a seperate tank now with 2 sucking loaches. I test the water with a multi test strip, which is all fine. Can the crabs go into a pond? probably not eh? Karen
Hi Anybody that reads this, has anybody ever lost a fish? About 3 days ago our male fighter disapeared, we have emptied the tank of all greenery etc, and even saw our khuli loaches, 2nd time since weve bought them, the male fighter has totally gone, we ve put the two crabs into another tank, could these of got the fighter???????? They are the only things that we wish we had never bought, they are creepy and i think maybe nasty. Could these crabs of eaten the fighter???????? Please advise
Hi Violet, thanks for replying, just checked fishies and all seems well, bloating has gone, and scales were never out of the norm, when i posted this question, she did have some pooh hanging out, like the fancy goldfish always have, but now thats gone. Maybe she was a bit of a piggie at feeding time I did the multi test strip and all was fine with that
