Cant you try some rooibos tee for the eye issues?
I always QT now because I made that same mistake (on a smaller scale then you) I bought 2 sorwdtails and added them. They had ich 2 weeks late all but 6 fish where dead.
I hope it doesn't get that bad for you
Found the sick cory dead, which I’m not too surprised by unfortunately- he looked far gone to me.
Remaining otto is alive!
Was very surprised though to find a dead rummy nose (was missing this morning). It’s wedged in deep between the side of the glass and rock work, can’t get it out!!
Can TASA install a sad button. Pressing like doesn't feel right now
I have found the rummy nose to be very sensitive I lost 3 over a few days
Honestly don’t know how I’m going to get this guy out. Tried a number of tweezers etc but he’s so far in and the ramshorns that are going after it also blocks the opening. Cavity is too narrow to manouvre tweezers
Can you not siphon it out? Sorry to hear of the issues Been there!
Good idea, thanks!
Thanks for the empathy
This is one of the reasons I only use salt for ich
Have had this happen to me a few times in past but havent lost single fish since using the salt method
Sorry for all the loses @A new day and hope the Kanaplex helps
For those that dont believe in salt and rather use meds / antibiotics , Metro also treats ich
Thanks @MariaS I may be optimistic but think the Kanaplex - Paraguard combo is working.
The remaining sterbai looks better than it has in a week. Overall the fishes’ activity level is up today and I am hopeful that there has been a turnaround. None of the remaining fish seem in a particularly bad shape. Fingers crossed!
Things are definitely looking up
That's fantastic news
Hope this is now all sorted... all best
If you can going forward try invest in the UltraZap sterilizer
Your tanks aren't that big so shouldnt be too too expensive
Just do one at a time as you can
Is it this one? A bit confusing because they call it a clarifyer on the website but from my internet search it sounds like the sterilizer? Seems as if the 8 W is made for a 180L tank so good.
Makes me think of the Lexington advertisement from years gone past...
That's the one.
Are you getting the stainless steel one??
What do you suggest? Is there quite a price difference?
Also, am I the only one struggling with Jungle Aquatics’ website. Every time I go there it takes forever to navigate around- seems slow, hanging etc. Only reason I haven’t shopped there before, too frustrating!
Bad news: another dead diamond tetra. It didn’t even look sick to me yesterday.
- the remaining otto is now active again and eating away merrily, behaving normally
- can’t really see ich anymore (but will finish the course)
- remaining diamond tetra are displaying again today for the first time
- platys behaving normally, no flashing nor clamped fins. Some of the heavily pregnant females must have been withholding fry but probably dropped some last night, offering some relief. Males are chasing the females again like livebearers do
- khuli seems fine
- remaining sterbai looks the happiest I’ve seen it in a long time. Skin not 100% glossy yet though (big improvement)
- danios and SAE still fine
- remaining rummy noses seem fine
Just get the plastic one, it doesn't matter anyway its hidden most of the time since its hidden. The price difference is around R6000 because its only available in 55 watts. I misread it.
Can't you use the blue one also? I think @MariaS and @Cesar both use them
Its slow to load but it will work for me. let me know if you need help
The blue one is the UV Clarifier.
It keeps your water clean from waterborne algae.
The Professional is white in colour, and has the quartz sleeve, that sterilises the water.
The price difference is not that much.
When I got mine the difference in price was about R300-R400.
Here are my impressions of the UV Steriliser from 2016.
