Two issues, first issue. My tiger barb is so bloated and pine coning. He is the second to do so the first one died. :-( I k
ow the poor little guy has to be suffering. What can I do? Pics attached. Both barbs I have had over a year. :-(
Second issue. I had a 46 gallon hex tank and it started leaking at the seam half way down. In a panic went to pet smart and bout a new 47 gallon bow front. I love it!
All was fine, until I noticed my ph was a little high ammonia was increased slightly but nothing serious. I did a 10 gal
water change, I always add aquarium salt and water purifier every time I do a water change. I am now adding a ph conditioner as well.
I use a new (bought it yesterday) marineland 350 wich I think is going to be great. My old filter is a marineland 250 which is still running until the other filter is seeded. 4 to 5 weeks is safe until I remove the old filter. yes?
Am I doing everything I should be doing correctly? My water looks like someone dumped several gallons of milk in but I've never had that problem before with water changes. This happened before the new filter was put on mind you.
I did have a sever ick outbreak when I changed tanks over I am guessing stress. It is now clear if ick but the water ugh! I'm told it's blooming and that's a good thing.
Let me preface, the new tank has been set up for almost two months, my water was crystal clear after the tank change. And now....
