Thanks :/ that makes 2/3 of my golden girls. I think the end of nitrogen cylce bacteria spike made her really sick. She pulled through a few days ago and then just went tonight *snaps* like that. I have a corydra, his name is Stanley. He is so interesting to watch. Good luck on your shipment!

Sorry to hear about your losses guys. I had 3 of my neon tetra disappear without a trace last week but i left the heater unplugged overnight which may have killed them. Strange not to see any trace of bodies though, maybe my plecos ate them. I had one of my adult Harlequin Rasboras start to just fade out last week until i came home yesterday and found it gasping on the floor of the tank. I had noticed it stopped eating and had a slump in her tail last sunday. It still swam when i decided to isolate her but she died overnight sadly.

It is a downer when you are not able to help your sick fish. It feels worse to see the fish go into a slow spiral to death than to just notice them gone. I think i speak for a lot of people here when i say we all wish we could keep our gilled buddies fighting fit.

Anyway WDIDTMTT from sunday through till today.
Sunday. Lots of small feeds through the day before i do my sunday WC & filter maintenance. So it's the day i like to spoil my fish with their favorite foods. Afternoon, 40-50% WC on three tanks. Set up a Ramshorn grow out tank (can get $1- $1.50 each for my red ramshorns at LFS).

Day one of operation greenwater. After removing 70% of the water i set up a small filter with a high flow rate with filter floss. I ran it for 2 hours on the tank as i added water very gradually and cleaned it out three times before i had refilled the tank. I was using a slightly larger filter with a much lower rate of flow for the last week to remove the algae.It failed. So another 3 day blackout was scheduled after giving my plants a few days with light to recover from my first blackout attempt. This time i decided to go hardcore with the blackout. I attached cardboard to three sides of the tank with pegs and unplugged my lights I even used a hood on my tank for the first time in about 5 years.

Monday- Feeding, PWC 30% on Kuhli tank, cleaned the filter floss for Op greenwater. Removed my sick Rasbora from the community tank.

Today- Op greenwater- Things are looking very clear now in the Kuhli tank with 12 hours before lights on, i can see plants at the far end of the tank with the torch on my phone (2 foot tank) when 2 days ago i couldn't see the from front to back in the tank with 2 T8 lights. 20% WC and new filter floss again in the greenwater filter. Tomorrow i will end the blackout and remove the greenwater filter. Hopefully it's dealt with for good now. I miss seeing my Kuhli.

Well 1 whole day with no deaths. yipee! So I fed them, and the Gudgeon didn't eat. That is my daughter's favorite which she was going to take with her to her new apartment soon. So I hope it will adjust to the situation.

The tank temp is 86F now and the Gudgeon likes it a max of of 78F so he isn't feeling too well from that as well. He had a spot of Ich on him so I need him to go through the heat for, I hope I can check and see if 3 days for the life cycle and they fall off, if that could work, I could get him out of the heat.

I am finishing cleaning the 35 and the 2 small filters that were in the 16G and getting the plants into the 35G. I wasn't feeling well yesterday and rested some.

There were a bunch of MTS type snails which came up out of the sand from the 16G tank's bucket of sand, so I scooped them up and put them back into the 16G.

Doing a medium pwc on the 72G and adding back in some Epsom salts for the magnesium and some more powdered cuttlebone for the kh/gh. Hoping soon, after a few days more of pwc there will finally be a stabilization of the pH.

Have the extra air stone on the tank and am filling only 3/4 full so the out take blows lots of bubbles/air into the water.

Although I love my big 72G tank, it is so much more difficult to reach things, clean, treat, move plants, trim plants, and in general maintain than the smaller ones.

I can't believe it, but one of the Oto cats actually lived through the apocalypse. That must be one REALLY tough cat!


Alan, maybe a UV sterilizer for the algae. Sorry to hear about your fish too.


SW news- My clean up crew package arrives tomorrow for my SW. Yesterday I got a Fire Shrimp and a snail and 2 tiny Blue Leg Hermits and they are still alive today! I have Coraline Algae growing on some of the live Coral rock now.

I'm glad you haven't had any more deaths. I hope your gudgeon pulls through ok and you get through ich without any issues.
Good luck with your SW tank!

I'm sorry for your losses... I know how you feel. Two weeks ago I lost half of my fish due to silicone getting into my tank and creating a film that locked out oxygen. I lost my 2 year old angel that's been with me my whole fish keeping experience along with numerous other fish. Rescaped though and it looks awesome and fish are doing good again and replacements are adjusting nicely. My 3 new baby angels look great and I look forward to seeing them grow up.

First, I'm so sorry for all of your losses. This is one of the few places I know of where they are so much more than "just fish". My deepest condolences.

As it type I'm watching my 2 of my corys play in the filter outflow. Earlier I cleaned a little green spot algae off of the front glass. I find if I clean a spot here or there between major weekly maintenance it keeps it under control.
