GisheryGoodness Posted June 7, 2022 Share Posted June 7, 2022 I have two different things going on so bear with me. For the 29 gallon I started treating for ich on Friday and only one of them have any spots, and he was really rough looking. I got pictures of them all, not great pictures but I tried. The yellow one in the second pic looks like he has white spots on his body but he's just idk kinda shiny and thats what it looks like for some reason up close. However I'm pretty sure they're all constipated. When they poop it's just a long black string that stays attached for a bit while they're swimming. I fed them today, I've seem fairly mixed thoughts on feeding while medicating and they definitely snatched it all up. I know to keep treated for about two days after seeing the last spot and I plan to keep the salt water for a week after that unless that's affecting their constipation issues. So my questions are how do I solve the constipation issue? What do I do once the treatment is done, tank wise, I know to run all equipment hose, net, ect through bleach solution and set aside but not what to do inside tank? Am I right that they are looking good or are there other issues? Added crushed coral yesterday, how long does it take to raise GH/KH? Is there a way to raise GH and KH without raising PH because I apparently have soft water so all my tanks need to be raised but the PH of my other tanks does not need to be raised? Current Water parameters before 25% water change and re-added meds and salt and Prime. GH - 5 KH - 2 PH - 7.0 Ammonia - 0 Nitrites - 0 Nitrates - 0, they were 5.0 yesterday but I'm guessing the daily water change messed with that. Temp 84 The platy I isolated I don't think is doing well. I am on day four of following what was suggested here of Kanaplex and jungle fungus tabs. I can't test the water until I get some strips though because the water is blue so using the test kit won't really work. I'll post the few pics I managed to get of her as well. Maybe she is doing better? She seems more active and I'm now fairly certain she is a she because she's not clamping her fins but is she showing signs of dropsy? Here are all the pics, the first one of from Saturday, the rest from today. Sorry for the long post, just really hoping there's a light at the end of this tunnel Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
