Stroy15 Posted September 6, 2022 Share Posted September 6, 2022 (edited) I changed my filter (replacing the carbon and fiber) last night and a white cloud came out of the filter outlet after some air went through it which I think was due to bacteria growing inside the tube. Today I went to do a major water change and it stressed some kulli loaches out in part due to temporary lack of oxygen or because of wrong ph coming from my water change (I tried to lower to ph to 7 from my 7.5 water in my buckets but I think I over did it. I got a fresh bucket mix it up till I got close to the ph I wanted although I think it was too low. The tank measured 6.7 when I started the change.) I moved 15 gallons from my 47 gallon tank I made a medicated food slurry (using colu's instructions) using kanaplex because the kulli loaches seemed discolored with red gills (they were not happy about the water change and/or maybe they are inflicted with a condition. I saw this kulli loach poop with some air bubbles coming out with a long poop with a tinge white, but I have no reference for what it's (kulli loach poop) supposes to look like. I have read articles indicated that fish a mucus coating that is often white and does not always indicate disease or parasites. Edit: I added 40 gallons worth of Malifix and a tablespoon of aquarium salt I am looking out for suggestions on how I could have done this better and what might be wrong with the tank. Ph 6.7-6.8 Kh 0-40 Gh 200 Ammonia 0.25 (I added a 1/4 teaspoon of fritz prime and nitrifying bacteria) Nitrite 0 Nitrate 5-20 Temp 76 Edited September 6, 2022 by Stroy15 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
