  1. Hey, quick question about KanaPlex dosing. I have a 30 gal that has minor epistylis, saw it this morning. I have seen the KanaPlex dose chart, and saw that it’s one scoop KanaPlex, one focus and a tablespoon of food per 5 gallons, does that mean I have to do 6 tbsp food?? My fish definately don’t eat that much 😂. Is there a better way to do this or am I just not understanding right?
  2. Will do, thank you!
  3. Hmm, the Molly’s both had spots around their eyes, and they definitely aren’t flat to the skin. Sorry for the bad pic, platty won’t stay still 🙂
  4. Nitrate: 5 Nitrite: 0 gh: 300 kh: 120 ph: 8 chlorine: 0 ammonia: 0 temp: 80f Ok, bit of a long story but bear with me. I got 4 platies and 4 mollies from ac about 4 weeks ago. I quarantined them and treated maracyn then para cleanse, near the end of the para cleanse treatment the male molly got a few cloudy white spots and died about 4 days later. I then dosed ich x every day for 3 days. During that time A platty died, I hadn’t seen any spots on her or any of the other fish the whole time. Her body was quite crooked and she hadn’t eaten for several days so that makes me think it was unrelated? I then put the 6 remaining fish in my 30 gal planted community tank. (6 petricola cats and a bristlenose). The next day I noticed one tiny white spot on one of the platies so I put her in quarantine and started treating with ich x. She kept just the one spot for about a week then got like five more. The cloudy white spots seam to have gotten a bit lighter since. I read about stress ich and am wondering if it could be that? See dots on her tail. A week ago I noticed 2 of the Molly’s had lots of cloudy white spots so I quarantined them to. Their spots mostly went away after a few days but there are still some cloudy ones that don’t look quite like their white markings. (Looks like there are more spots that there really are due to plant bits in water) Another thing I noticed is that my aquarium glass had a bunch of cloudy white spots. See third pic. Idk if it’s related or just algae. I cleaned them off since then. I have been treating ich x inconsistently for about 2 weeks. They seam to have gotten a bit better but I guess I am wondering if I should continue or do something else? I am also wondering if it is really ich or if it could be velvet? They all eat and act normally. I might be overreacting as it seams to be getting better, but I want to be sure that I am doing the right thing. thank you! And again sorry for the long explanation!
  5. I am fairly new to fish keeping and recently got my first tank. I have a 30 gal planted tank and ridiculously hard water stocked with 6 dwarf Petricola catfish and a Bristlenose Pleco. I am wondering if I could add a few more fish, or if my tank might be at capacity? If you think I could comfortably fit a couple more in there, any suggestions?
