Yesteday evening hubby was cleaning the filter and all of a suden one of my ghost carp jumped right out of the water.Is this normal?Got him back in right away and he was fine.I said that hubby had frightend him.
Arr,just put him to sleep.What a way to go.My hubby said he'd like to go that way when the time comes.I'm thinking of doing a partial water change.Do you think this is a good idea?never cahnged the water and had the pond well over a year!
Hi pond readings are fine.I have filled a large tub bucket with pond water put some plants in it a a small dose of melafin.Have put the fish in over night.Have I done wrong.I didn't want to turn my uv system off at the mo.Don't want to chance blanket weed as pond in good con.Thought I'd put him in over night and put him back in pond in the day.I'll do this for a few nights and see what happens.Is this ok?
Sorry to say they did not make it.Took them both out on thurs night.Yesterday morning both looked very poorley.Took them back to the shop.They said they were proberbly ill before we got them,It's a chance.We took a water sample for them to check.Like my results they said it was fine.Wait a few days then I'll get a couple more goldies.All other fish are great.Greedy little things.Thanks for all your help.
Ok.had to go out and do it. PH 6.5,Amonia 0.0,Nitrite 0.0,Nitrate 0.1ish.So that all looks fine,which is more that I can say for my poor fish.1 of them is moving his tail and fins the other is still,not a flinch.Just tried to move her and she just floats then gives a little wiggle.Poor thing!
No,not now got my PJs on.I'll do it 1st thing.At 1st I just thought they were sleepy and it as a bit cold for them,but the others are all fine and keep wanting food.Just these 2 sat on the bottom.It's so sad to watch them!
Last week I bought 2 Butterfly Carp.When they were in the tank at the Pond shop they were really active.I picked them out specially.Since adding them to the pond,they dont move.They just lie on the bottom of the pond.They are very dopey and you can easily catch them.Infact I thought 1 had died today,scooped him out with the net and he just layed there then he moved a bit so put him back in and he swam to the botom.All my other fish are fine.Even feeding.Whats wrong with my 2 dopey fish?
