Hello FK, Just wondering if rainwater in Basildon would be applicable for my tetras, I got all the mineral buffers so can remineralize to my needs and run some carbon/filtration in the water butt,I have a RO but would be alot more eco friendly for me to just collect natural rain water which im sure has it's benefits.
Hello Emma, I'm in Basildon and have guppies id rather not have, there is no LFS around here i can get to so im stuck with them until my father visits, i'm going for just a tetra/catfish aqua, I ideally want them all gone i have around 3 males 6 females and 6-10 babies (hard to tell in a active aquarium), I wouldn't want anything for them.
There offspring from my previous guppies, Can vouch for the health to a degree there active and always trying to mate, But my water parameters is a little soft for them and has been for awhile going by FK's caresheet.
My PH is in range and Temp but the DGH is 4 and my TDS is 150 in my aqua (not sure what TDS guppies need). They have been fed a variety of frozen food and nothing but New Era flakes/Algea pellets which are for my corydoras but they all have a nibble :D.
I have purchased exit, It was free delivery so thats a bonus, hopefully it isn't slow, Im going to water change tonight so that will help with nitrates and free swimming ich, I looked at product information for "Esha Exit" and it seems i have velvet not whitespot, Eather way it treats both so can't go wrong.
Yeah that makes sense, i will buy esha exit, The main reason i want to use prime is because it comes early, If i buy exit it could take a few more days, I also have assassin snails, And it says on "Esha Exit" it's safe for snails, So that will have to be the one.
Hello FishLady, I don't think it was the nitrates as i noticed the ich about 2 weeks ago in tiny amounts then it went, But i think it's not made it any better Im changing 65 litres today, And it will be matching KH PH TDS etc, TDS currently is 150.
I also posted on PFK and a member there suggest raising tempature to 32c and doing daily water changes to get rid of the free swimming icy, I also researched and i found the most safe method is to raise temp to 32c and increase oxygenation in the aquarium, I have raised the Heater to 32c and added a o2 diffuser to the output of my juwel bioflow so there should be way enough o2.
Medication is toxic to fish so I've read, and cardinals are very delicate as you said, Here is a screenshot of whitespot treatments i can get guaranteed monday or even sunday if I'm lucky.
6.6PH 1KH 4DGH 0 Ammonia 0 Nitire 80 Nitrates- (in the process of warming up RO water for remineralisation and water change they are 2 days overdue for a water change because i was on holiday and the high nitrates might be because my friend was feeding them and could of gave more then i usually do etc.
