  2. Hi everyone. I am in a bit of a pickle today. I only have 1 tank at home (20 gal) with 1 juvenile Ryukin and 5 Glassfish. Yesterday, I went out and bought 5 Dwarf Red Platies. At the store, they looked perfect. I didn't see any fungus, fin tear, or discoloration. I don't have a quarantine tank, so I just added them in after a 30 min acclimation. After adding them, I noticed that one of them had ich. The damage was done, so I went and added salt to the tank at a ratio of 1 Tbsp per 2 gal water. I also used API PimaFix and am currently on day 2. This morning, I checked again and noticed that the initial Platy does not have ich anymore, but the 4 other ones do (only the Platies have ich at the moment). I got scared and scooped them out into a cup. I then noticed that one was giving birth. So I scooped the other 4 out, then scooped out the mother when she was done. I then put a mesh breeder box in the main tank, and poured the babies. Will the salt and meds in the main tank hurt the babies? I assumed that it was safe to add in the babies because ich is an external parasite, not an internal one. I also don't have food for them. I only have Hikari Goldfish Gold, some tetra flakes, and some cubes of freeze-dried brine shrimp. It must've mated while at the shop, because I don't have any males, and was unfortunately not prepared for this. Can someone help me out please? I would like to also apologize if I am posting in the wrong section. It was either this section or the fish diseases one. Thank you for your time and I hope you have a wonderful day. - Thomas
  3. Hi all i have a 36 gallon bowfront. I had moved a new pearl gourami in and he had immediately shown signs of fin rot and fungus. I got the quarantine Trio to use on my fish. I have 3 problems 1. I started off using Pima and mela fix but then found out they are not good for labyrinth fish due to the tree oil. After 2 days i stopped using this i started doing daily water changes until the quarantine trio came in 3 days later, so 3 straight days of water changes after i stopped dosing pima and melafix 2. Ich-x says to do a water change before every dose, but Maracyn says to not. In aquarium co-op’s video it said they go great together so I tried it to urgently help my fish but now am not sure on what to do. 2. After 2 days of medicating the Ich-X and Maracyn without water changes, my loach of 6 months and Gold Nugget Pleco of 7 months were dead. What is happening??!! I just want to save my tank. I have no money for test strips as that money went to the quarantine trio. Now 2 fish that were perfectly healthy are dead. What the hell aquarium co-op?!?
  4. I was looking at my crayfish because she has eggs and just wondering how they are dying and i noticed there are some small worms on her mouth then u noticed two on the glass I need to know what kind they are what to do!!
  5. I know bettas. I’ve had bettas for 20 years....bred em and they are like underwater puppies. Tanks are fine. Normal maitnence routine and testing. Looking at some babies and saw this.... My male Plakat, Mochi. No Swelling but what appears to be pineconing. I’ve only seen swollen bettas pinecone. He had just had 3 hikari pellets. Please tell me it isn’t so.... Is it dropsy?? Eating, active, swimming and sleeping all normal. I know it’s mostly near his gills and front end. Not flaring. I can’t even think of anything. If it is I’ll put baby shrimp from grow out into tank and put him in to quarantine. I don’t want to treat if it’s not needed obviously.
