Can't believe I didn't think of doing that here is the result of my tap water test my tank water test for ammonia result is the same,if it's not ammonia making them flash what do think the likely suspect is ?
Well, that reads 0 as far as I'm concerned. As to the flashing, it's very hard to say. Do you have sand or gravel? Sometimes with sand, a grain or two can get under the scales and cause the fish to flash to get rid of it.
If you've already treated for parasites I'm at a loss to explain the fluashing. If it's occasional and only one or two fish it may be nothing to worry about. I'd try turning the air pump off or repositioning the airstone against the back or side wall in case tiny bubbles are getting under their skin and irritating them.
I've tried kordens ich attack as I have black Venezuelan corydoras and Assisian snails and king Aqua care anti fungus and white spot neither worked first time around Fishlady wrote: You can give it a try. Which medication did you use last time?[/quote]
Will it be safe for snails to ? I've just tested the tap and tank water and both results say 0.25 ammonia so your right about the test kit not being reliable I'll try what you're recommending thanks again it's really appreciated Peter
