    Don't know what to do

    Post by zeketaz on Sun Nov 27, 2011 11:17 am

    There has to be a parasite at work here. Originally I had my angels in the 29 gallon start darting around and turning orange. Found out had super high nitrates. Then got Nitrites and low PH. Well everything is balanced again and Nitrates are 5. Some of the fish are still orange but their fins aren't to clamped and others are orange with very clamped fins. Also noticing white poo.

    Well when the 29 crashed I moved 2 of the fish out of it and put them in my 75. Well now all the fish in the 75 are now sick. Leading me to think parasite. Mocha and Latte have wigglers but really aren't doing anything with them. Mocha has clamped fins and has been hanging out at the surface of the water.

    All readings in the 75 are fine, but I have to do a water change. I'm at a loss and don't want to start just throwing meds in the tank.

    Have pics and video just need to upload them

    hit all tanks with general cure, gonna be a little pricey but will fix them right up, best thing for internal issues.

    crap.... you have internal and external stuff going on...... from what I can see that looks like fungus..... the smaller guys shaking their heads in the other videos isn't good either.

    What temp are the tanks sitting at?

    you need to come by boardroom today so we can figure out a med regiment to get you started on


    (and didn't I tell you not to get fish from those nasty big box stores)

    Doing 1 round of levemisol followed by a round of quick cure and then 2 more rounds of levimisol.

    Did you pull the carbon and unplug the lights?

    I almost forgot to pull the carbon...lol

    Got the meds put in then was like CRAP! and yanked the carbon

    And for a double check on dosing

    Day 1-2: Levamisole 36-48 hrs gravel vac

    Day 2-8:Treat with Quick Cure 1 drop per 2 gallons= lots of counting (day 4 water change?)

    Day 8-14: run carbon

    Day 14-15: Levamisole 36-48 hrs gravel vac

    Day 15-28: regular weekly water change with gravel vac

    Day 28-29: Levamisole 36-48 hrs gravel vac

    Man is this confusing lol

    Got first round of levamisole done. Vacuumed all tanks best I could. Put fresh water in with prime. The 29 is looking better but fish have white poo and one is scratching against objects. The 75...the angels look terrible. Mocha had a spot on her like one in the 29 did but it disappeared??? The fungus stuff on her looks even worse Sad

    How often should I be putting drops of Quick Cure in the tanks? Should I do it once or twice a day? Since Mocha and Latte look practically white and fluffy or greyish fluffy or maybe it looks more like a film...they are in the back of the tank so can't tell.

    Well the 29 is a ton better no more clamped fins Smile still treating though and checking water daily. I did loose one angel though Sad Little Badger. He wasn't looking to happy after Snowy laid her eggs. He went way downhill when I was dumb and put the other 2 angels in his space and I had to move him. Poor Badger

    The 75 is a whole different story. Mocha is looking a ton better Latte looks sad and terrible and the other angels are orange and still have clamped fins. I wish the quick cure worked a little faster.

    The 20 gallon is finally done it's mess and all tests are good. I rescaped it, added the puffers and am still medicating with jungle fizz tabs as I had to medicate them for worms anyways.

    The shrimp tank not sure what is up with it. It is doing what the 20 did just totally lost it's cycle...working on fixing it now lol

    Alright all tank are going in the right direction but the 75. One day Mocha and latte look great the next they look all fuzzy again. Seems the quick cure isn't working. Been using it daily with a water change every 2-3 days so not to kill my loaches or tetras.
