  1. Thanks, I appreciate it. Gourami (Pisco) and company are doing well today with no signs of illness, but I was able to pick up some ParaCleanse and Expel-P from our LFS amazingly. I think I'll hold off on medicating until the tank get really settled in and I can really pin down more overt symptoms. Are these medications harmful to my beneficial bacteria? I know Metronidazole in humans also has antibiotic properties as well as antiprotozoal.
  2. I'll have to read up on wasting disease. Is paracleanse the same as General Cure?
  3. Hey all- New here, and new to community tanks. Recently went to Aquarium Co-Op on Tuesday and picked up a new honey gourami and eight emerald eye rasboras. On Wednesday evening I noticed the gourami was flashing on some plants, not wanting to eat, being shy (he did biuld an insane bubble nest though). I tested my water and everything was within normal limits, I thought he was just adjusting to the new tank. However, tonight I saw him flashing again and some white poop (?) floated up to the surface. I thought it was a worm but when I pulled it out of the tank it was just kind of mucous-like and disintegrated. He still hasn't eaten, just spits pellets out. The rasboras seem unaffected. I'm not too familiar with gourami, but does this sound like parasites? Tank: 10 gallon pH- 6.8-7.2 Nitrates: 10-20ppm Hardness: 150 Nitrite: 0 ppm Ammonia: 0ppm KH/Buffer: 80 Water Temperature: 77-78
