  1. Hi, 3 days ago I purchased 10 Glowligh tetras from a pet shop. Upon arrival at home I noticed one of them had some white spots on the tail and some white on the fins. Another one had some redness on their stomach which now turned into what's seen on the photo, I assume fungus? I'm not sure what the disease is and what medication to treat it with. Water parameters are all perfect. As of now in the house I have: Seachem's Prime, Stability, Clarity Interpet's Anti Fungus and Finrotn, Interpet's Aqualibrium first aid salt additive, AllPondSollutions Aquarium Rescue, King British Disease Clear and King British White spot Control Since I don't have a hospital tank and other fish now started showing some white on their fins I will be treating the whole 58L tank at once. The two fish with the most visible symptoms are in the photo. Any help is much appreciated
  2. Thank you Colu for your constant help, I really appreciate it. I've done 4 days of the medication now, the package says to do max of 7 days. If no improvement, what would you suggest for euthanising the fish, wouldn't want him to suffer. Do I need to clean the tank out (plants, gravel, decor) and change the water afterwards? At some point I would like to get some more fish and wouldn't want any harmful bacteria to attack them later on since Gouramis had multiple problems due to their illness (eye infection, scales missing, fin problems) I will most possibly not buy Gourami due to the illness and threat of passing it on to new fish, even though when not I'll they're stunning. I've also contacted the shop with the concerns about the fish I got from them but they blocked me on Facebook and aren't picking up my phone.
  3. Today the female Gourami sadly passed on. The male seems to be missing more scales, however he's still eating and swimming. It's the fourth day on Aquarium Rescue, I'll carry on using it for the recommended week to make sure that the rest of the fish in the aquarium are doing fine.
  4. Hi, I have just received a bottle of Aquarium Rescue and applied the suggested amount to my tank. It had some floaty blue bits in it after shaking but hopefully it will help my Gouramis, since earlier today I noticed what looks like an ulcer (?) on the female fish. I'll keep adding the liquid and posting the progress. Keep your fingers crossed!
  5. The products available are API Melafix https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0002567SW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_fabc_G92V7EMH44BA9K2191DF and the only one with the substance you mentioned is by AllPondSollutions Aquarium Rescue, the rest of them advertise as for ponds/koi fish only ( https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B077TT5YD5/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_fabc_A4S9BCV0RQ2BZQX4WSYF ) Any of those would do? Many thanks x
  6. I only have one 15 gallon tank and no other place to put the rest of the fish (4 Corrydoras). Should I treat the whole tank at once? I'm currently looking for the medicine you mentioned in the UK, would any antibacterial work?
  7. That's pictures from today. Hard to get any since they're mostly trying to hide. Hope this helps x
  8. For at least a week now my two Dwarf Gouramis (1m/1f) are showing some alarming signs, eating and moving less, losing some scales, one of them has damage to his eye that's not healing. I have purchased them a month ago. They're sharing a tank with 4 Corydoras (bought from the same shop) and 3 snails. Is there any way I could help them? Is it possible that it's Iridovirus and I won't be able to do anything to help them heal? If its the Iridovirus, what do I do about the tank inhabitants and environment/ decor (live plants, rocks, substrate/ gravel)? The water parameters are as follows: pH is 7.4, ammonia, nitrites and nitrates are all 0. Lights are on from 4 to 9pm on a timer. Fish were fed once every two days like suggested by our fish shop until the cycle is stable, Stability was added daily, Prime every other day.
