  1. My guppies keep eating my panda Cory eggs. I only want to hatch enough to fill in the population. I used meth blue by Kordon when I bred CPD and hatched eggs. Just opened my bottle and…it’s not right so I guess it went bad??? I have seachem paraguard that contains malachite green (spelling?) will this work. I don’t want to spend money on kordon for just a one time hatch. Thank you! I also have an unopened bottle of ich-x I keep on hand would that work better?
  2. Treated this 40 gal breeder with API Fungus Cure. Water looks like engine coolant. Electric Blue Acaras could care less, and chose to spawn on a big shell. I'm trying to figure out exactly how I want to try to pull the eggs . . .
  3. Temp: 72F Hardness: 350PPM GH Alkalinity: 230PPM pH: 7.6 So I adopted 6 little golfish that are in extreme bad shape. A 14 year old kid said he did not want them anymore in my local fish group, and nobody wanted them so I felt bad for the fish. Now I have 6 little guys. Placed them in a quarantine 20long tank, and one day after putting them there, along with dosing pure malachite green, I see the tank CRAWLING with these guys: They're kind cool/fascinating, but sadly a pest. I'm guessing the malachite green made them detach from the goldfish? Anyways, I've been keeping the lights off because for some reason, when I turn them on, some of the goldfish start to dart around really bad, and one of them even seems to want to jump out of the tank (got a lid). I dosed more malachite green today, since they also seem to have fin rot. Poor guys were in extreme bad shape, but luckily not a single one has passed. What should I use for em? Med trio? How about salt, would salt be enough to completely eradicate these lice? Woudl it be better a highly concentrated salt bath, or dosing the aquarium itself?
  4. Would malachite green help with columnaris at all? I'm currently treating with salt and I managed to find a seller on ebay to get some kanaplex, that will be here in 5-10 days, and I have some API super ick cure. It has malachite green and PVP. Would this help/do nothing/hurt?
  5. Hi all. I'm have a bit of an Ich problem. The only medicine I have available is a formalin and malachite green solution made by a company called aquasonic, similar to Ich X but not by the same company. this particular med has 400mg (milligrams) of formalin and 0.32mg of malachite per millilitre of solution. the dose is 1ml per 40 litres of aquarium water and to repeat after 3 days. my first question is would i do a water change after the three days before dosing again. My guess is yes but I don't really know. My second question is probably the most important. one of the tanks has a tandanus catfish which is native to Australia where I live. this fish is known to be sensitive to formalin and malachite and I have killed two with this particular med at full dose. My LFS told me to half dose (1ml per 80 liters) every day for a week then water change and start again. does this sound right or did i mishear them as that is radically different from the bottle instead of dosing once every three day i would be dosing once a day even though at half dose it feels like a lot I'm not sure if the med "gets used up" hence why you need to dose every day at half dose or if i have misheard the store. hopefully as this is similar to Ich X someone will have some insight on what i need to do. and should i turn my lights off while treating as I read it deactivates malachite and formalin but i cant find any conclusive info Thank Christian. water parameter pH 7.8 its a little high im brining it down. ammonia 0 nitrite 0 nitrate 10 ppm Hardness 160 temp 26 the cat fish really doesn't like it any higher usually run at 24 but higher while treating (Edit, i rang my lfs when they finally opened on new years amd they said i was correct so ill try that. thanks.)
