Well i thought about the pipes but me and the guys at the station might make them a plastic world tmrw with a blow torch and cups.

Always an interesting shift.

They are much more active, lowering the salinity is allowing more oxygen to diffuse into the body. The gammas one white dot is gone.

As for the display tank.... Alone it waits for its swimming brothers. Very sad. I wonder if the large vender everyone gets the fish from in the whole state QT the fish before dispersing them out to all fish shops in GA.

1.007 is not a death sentence and not really anything to worry about..I always do my hypo at 1.008 ,,just raise to that

Just add some ph buffer

Send a message via MSN to mr_X
Increase the flow in the tank so that you have surface agitation. Put a power head in there. That will raise your ph.

1.010 is not true hypo conditions for killing ick..I know it may be a pain,but it should really be at 1.008-.009 ,these are the proven numbers that ick cannot survive in...

My husband went to a marine store, with a marine biologist, and he said

" all fish have ick"


So why do we all treat it!!!???

Ok now he just called and is bringing home a clown.

Im loosing control of this tank.

Also " the fish store" said to due copper remove the carbon. And in a few weeks pit them back in but rule is 30 days.

I thought the reason we QT is to kill off the parasites in the display tank? And also to be able to treat fish wo hurting lr.

Comments PLEASE
