  2. Hi all, newbie here but been in fish keeping for a year or three. Started with goldfish on the misguided assumption that they were easy, now that I know how big they grow I re-homed them and went tropical. Anyway, I have a 4' tank with a couple of beacon tetras, some cherry barbs, a bristlenose and I managed to trap some Crimson Spot Rainbows locally (after paying $11 each for some store bought ones that died quite soon after). I'm having trouble with the crimson spots (everything else is very healthy, to the point the cherries are breeding in the community tank). They grow for a while start developing nice colour, but then a little pink spot (looks a bit like fairy floss) appears on the flanks, it grows over a couple of months, then they get thin and die. I also have a couple that have no sign of infection but are extremely thin (noticeable because their heads are massive in comparison). I don't seem to have any water parameter issues (ammonia and nitrite always zero, nitrate kept below 40ppm with fortnightly water changes). Temperature kept at 25 degrees They seem to eat happily, some tiny pellets, some defrosted frozen bloodworm, some flakes and some frozen brine shrimp on a bit of a rotational basis. I've tried quarantining them and adding medication but that doesn't seem to help. I don't know if they're diseased, underfed (or fed the wrong things), or not happy with the water. Also not sure if there's something sharp in the tank they nick themselves on and get infected, but that's a bit of a reach, I doubt it (I checked when I assembled the tank). I can't seem to find out what's going wrong and would appreciate some advice. I haven't had a fish loss (other than the rainbows) for over two years now, so I think I take good care of the tanks. Thank you.
  3. Got about 10 of them to give away if anyone wants some..
  4. I have been told that the above fish is great for ponds & IBC's. Where can I get them from for a reasonable price?? Any help appreciated. Cheers
  5. hi i have got some crimson tides that i actually got from u a few months ago. i am trying to get them to breed but i honestly have no idea how to sex them. i have one who is really black and silver with just a touch of colour and the rest are more white with the black stripes and very yellow and red colouring. Could you please tell me how to work out whats what thanks for your time much appreciated.
  6. Two days ago all was fine - now my Crimson tide has an opaque left eye and looks kind of fluffy on that side. He is one of the dominent fish in the tank and, up until yesterday, kept every other fish away from his side of the tank. Today he has the opaque eye and is staying down the bottom of the tank and looks like he has been nipped at. All other fish are OK, all levels are good, 25% rain water change every week, PH 8.5, hardness OK. HELP I love the little fistey fella. He is currently in a floating hospital container in his tank. What do I do to keep him going?????????????
