    Sore on guppy?

    I would just treat with maracyn and salt for now I have never used equilibrium so maybe some one else can chime in what is API med cure
  2. It all depends on the species of pleco you plan on putting in your pond with that wide a temperature swing I wouldn't risk it
  3. Read as much as you can on the fish your getting and never make impulse purchases
  4. I think it fine to add them to your main tank as it been nearly a month since you lossed your last fish and they are eating ok and active I would add them

    The low KH and pH could have weaken his immune system making him more susceptible to illness this could be the start of a bacterial infection I would do a course of maracyn or kanaplex as well as adding the aquarium salt
  6. It could be this fish is just bottom of the pecking order and that's why it's seem stressed and has paler colour @Jess
  7. I think 20 gallon would be better in the short term a 40 gallons in the long term a 15-15-15 tank is about 12 gallon not 15 gallon I wouldn't keep a spotted Congo puffer in it long term
  8. It depends on the condition of your fish I would feed them up for a couple of days before using the med trio

    I would add an extra air stone and add some aquarium salt 1 table spoon for 3 gallons it help with Gill function and adds essential electrolytes to help reduce stress in your fish
  10. I have never used focus with expel p I don't think it would be a prolem you could add focus to this levamisole food recipe

    I Put all my crushed coral in my filters it will probably take a couple of weeks as it not getting as much flow thought it before notice any difference
  12. There stunning fish hopefully you have as much success with these Otto as you had with your other Otto's who knows you might be swimming in fry soon
  13. I would also have on hand seachems kanaplex and focus to use in food focus acts as a binding agent when used with kanaplex to make antibiotic fish food to treat internal bacterial infection and Fritz expel p active ingredient is levamisole for treating internal parasites

    I think you KH and pH are the problem guppys like a KH 140 and a pH of 7.5 I would add more crushed coral to bing up your KH and pH
  15. It could be a tumor or internal growth or a fluid filled cyst it's difficult one if it's a tumor or growth antibiotic will have no effect if it's a cyst what I would do is Epsom salt baths 1 table spoon for 1 gallon 2-3 times a day for no more than 15 minutes the salt will help reduce any fluid buildup
  16. A nitrate level of 20 is fine I would start to worry if you see it going over 40 even then their a difference of opinion of have toxic they are to fish if you have plants in your tank I wouldn't worry

    Quarantine trio UK

    Yes between them you can treat most common diseases Esha 2000 does treat mild external Bacterial infection I used it for fungal treatment more than a bacterial treatment if it something more serious such as an internal bacterial infection you need something like Sera baktopur direct tables or kanaplex or maracyn2 API furan2 maracyn
  18. How long have you had the puffer what are your water parameters what have you tryed feeding him and did you treat him for parasites when you got him
  19. It's the Frist time I used it and I haven't had cloudy water when feeding with it from what I have noticed it does break down in my tank a lot quicker than say algae wafers at the rate my fish eat it that not a problem and I only add small amounts
