Hi people, I have had this problem b4 but it went away and now has come back just after some tips to help reduce the build up of algae on my gravel substrate? I have checked all my water parameters and everything is where it should be so Im at a loss! could it be too much light?? any help would be appreciated thanks
Hi guys, I have a Silver Scat with a furry white covering, which can only be seen when light is shining on him at an angle... I can't see it when he's side on. It's probably 1-2mm thick and covers most of his body and fins. He's spastic as, racing around, and seems very unhappy. He is eating, but not as eagerly as usual. No other fish in the tank seem to be affected, although some of them flash regularly. Water is fine, gets changed twice a week including a gravel vac. Any ideas what it could be? I know it's hard to say without photos, but it wouldn't show up on a photo even if I was able to get him still for a second. I'm treating him with Fungal-Ade from Wardleys (I've also added 1TBL spoon of salt per 20L and turned the heater up to 28deg), as per the LFS advice. They thought it might be 'Velvet' just from a description, but I'm out of ideas as to what it is! Any help would be appreciated! Thanks
I have a 4 x 2 x 2 tank with sand as the substrate, so when I try and get a half decent current flow across the bottom (to help stir up the junk) the sand gets moved around and it just doesnt go to plan. So maybe a ground covering plant would help, as the way I am looking at it is the same way to prevent land erosion...the plants would help keep the sand together and then a current flow could be introduced. So any ideas on a ground covering plant, that doesnt require mowing all that often? I do like the look of hairgrass, but by what I have read it takes a bit more maintanance to get it right...is there anything easier out there?
