  1. I'm keeping eggs in methylene blue for the first time and I saw one video with Dean saying he dilutes the methylene blue out with 50% water changes once to twice a day. I want to add some moss in their fry tray too but am wondering when I should do it? I don't want to kill the moss or any infusoria that might be living in it to die because of the methylene blue.
  2. 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?
  3. Ok so this is something that I believe is known elsewhere but I feel most aquarists don't know. So according I was listening to the podcast of a live stream Cory was doing where he was talking about rope/reed fish. He was talking about how some batches are more difficult to keep alive and healthy. I've learned that many fish are collected using cyanide in the water. It is often used for reef fish but also in Africa and Asia in places that are difficult to get nets in or difficult to collect large numbers. Reed fish are often harvested this way and can die due to the cyanide that builds up in their system. One of the few treatments for this to my understanding is methylene blue. I don't fully know how all the chemistry works but to my understanding the cyanide and methylene blue will bond into a non toxic form that the body can expel. If anyone has more info they would like to share please feel free. Thank you all for reading my Nerm nonsense.
  4. My rams laid eggs last night. I pulled them and they are now in a little specimen container with some methylene blue and an air stone. They are hanging inside the aquarium so they stay the same temp as where they were laid. They usually eat the eggs so this is the first spawn I have pulled. I don’t know what I am doing. Thank you!
  5. When I dose meth blue the color fades to clear overnight. Does it need to be redosed or is it still working? As far as I can tell the blue oxidizes fades in color but remains effective. Just don't want my angel eggs to fungus again first time with meth blue. Thanks
  6. Hi everyone so I’m relatively new to the hobby and trying to breed fish.I seen on a A.C video that dean uses methalyn blue for his angel fish now my question is is using methalyn blue good to use on all eggs if they are removed from breeding tank?
  7. So I recently got a batch of eggs from a apistogramma agassizii pair i have and I wanted to use something to help prevent fungus from forming and/or spreading to the healthy eggs. Which product should I use? I currently have acriflavine and methylene blue. Can I use both without risk damaging the eggs?
