Re: Fish flashing #32
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.

Re: Fish flashing #34
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.

Re: Fish flashing #35
Ok I'll move the air pump I'm taking 50ml of tank water to maidenhead aquatics for them to test the water I'm at a loss to should I retreat for parasites ?

Thanks Peter

Re: Fish flashing #36
You can give it a try. Which medication did you use last time?

Re: Fish flashing #38
I would try a treatment for skin and gill flukes. I believe Esah GDex is safe for snails (not all fluke treatments are)

Re: Fish flashing #39
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
