We have a very sick Blackmoor.
We have just moved him into a new tank out of his old - as he was getting sicker and sicker in the old tank but water parameters were fine.
1~What type of fish is afflicted? In addition, please describe what is wrong with the fish to the best of your ability (i.e. cotton like growth, bloated, etc.).
Black moor, white film that was just behind his eyes now on body
2~What are your tank parameters (ammonia, nitrites, nitrates, temp, pH)? Please give exact values.
Amonia - 0ppm, PH 7.8, nitrites .25ppm
3~ How large is the tank? How long has the tank been set up?
Tank is 130 L, set up for 1.5 weeks - I know it has not fully cycled but we are desperate - he is so sick and needed fresh water
4~What type of filtration are you using? Please give the name and number (i.e. Fluval 304) and amount of gph
Hang on filter
5~How many fish are in the tank? What kinds of fish are they and what are their current sizes?
Just 1, Kenny.
6~When is the last time you did a water change and vacuum the gravel? How often do you do this? How much water do you remove at a time?
As mentioned, brand new tank
7~How long have you had the fish? If the fish is new, how did you acclimate it/them?
Iíve had Kenny for a year
8~Have you added anything new to the tank--decor, new dechlorinator, new substrate, etc.?
We added new gravel to his old tank, in the tank he has been in now for just 20mins - everything is new.
9~What kind of food have you been feeding your fish, have you changed their diet recently?
I am hoping for a disagnosis - I will be keeping a close eye on all water parameters, as we will now need to switch to a fish in cycle.
