Hmmm. Now I see why your parents say "NO MORE TANKS!"

I have a big tank sitting empty at my son's house that was my mothers. It's big, I don't know the size or dimensions but it muct be at least twice the size of the one I have now. It will be awhile before I can even fathom setting it up, because I would have to build a stand for it, and right now we are in the middle of renovating our kitchen that FLOODED and had to be gutted a few months back (my husband and I do most of the work ourselves, so the reno takes longer, but it's more fun that way!). All of this in the middle of my 14 child preschool! The aquarium was supposed to be a pleasing stress reducer and distraction for me and the kids. HA!

I'd have to see if the tank is even in usable condition, because my son just moved it out in the back yard and left it there.

Later....

Oddly enough, in spite of all this, I am still enjoying this little venture. But I really need to slow down on the $pending! This wasn't in the budget!

Post a thread in the DIY section of the site about the stand/tank. They can help you with it. dimensions would be great though lol. But ya... This is the problem with listening to petsmart lol... They set you up with everything wrong, so when you figure it out, you wind up spending more money then you thought you were. But it's an addicting hobby lol.

Thanks... I ned to see if the tank is even still there, and if it leaks or not. It might be better to go on craigslist and see what I can find...but, it'll have to be in a few weeks. My fishies will have to survive until our kitchen is done.

Thank you.

I looked on the petsmart online and they have the meds and the salt but not the test kit. Honestly, I'd like to give someone else the business, anyhow. I feel like PetSmart has enough of my fish money! Do you have any online stores that you recommend?

Hmm, weird, mine had the test kit. Ok, Drs. foster and smith have good stuff. And the API master kit stands for Aquarium Pharmaceuticals. That's how it shows up usually.

Ok...I have aquarium salt. Now what so I do with it? Krusty is so crusty I moved him out of the 25 gallon tank and now he is in a 1.5 gallons of water...awaiting some treatment. He has a big fuzzzy spot on his side where he had the wound before.

I want to treat him as "strongly" as I can in his 1.5 gallons.

Then I want to treat the 25 gallon tank...but I am going to be doing regular water changes until I get all of the color out of the water from the other medicine.

The other two medicines haven't arrived yet. I got my master test kit and a hydrometer.

So now what do I do?

Alright, treat krusty with the aquarium salt and the melafix when it gets here. How about you test your water and post some parameters? It sounds like krusty's wound is infected, so treat with the aquarium salt NOW lol. Then just add the melafix upon it's arrival.

I am doing a PWC right now on the 25 gallon tank and I was going to test the water as soon as the tank is full again. Probably within the hour. (i tey to add the water slowly) As for Krusty, I was thinking of making a saltwater "dip" in a small container that was a little more concentrated, leave him in it for 5 or 10 minutes, and then put him back in his 1.5 gallon hospital room. Is that a good plan?
