  1. New member with fish problems! Before I begin: they're mums fishes, but I've had to take care of them the past 1.5 weeks and problems have popped up. I've been reading non-stop about these things online, but if someone can give me some advice specific to my situation, it would be appreciated. - In short: New fish, new fountain, new plant, overfeeding for the last week, recent heat wave saw water levels fall a fair bit To save you all from a whole heap of reading: 9 y/o goldfish is sick - red streaks through its tail, which is torn and ragged. Occasionally seems listless but observed swimming around normally otherwise. Been told it could be ammonia or other types of poisoning Other goldfish was added ~1 month ago, 1yo, tips of fins are black, just slightly, ammonia burns? Fishes have been moved recently into a new fountain by mum. Don't think it was cycled? Size ~55L Pet store told me that: new tank, new fish, new plant in tank, recent heat + low water levels are the cause Was given Melafix bacterial and anti-fungal remedy for 9y/o fish, plus water conditioner to use for both Told to take out the plant just in case the soil is problematic? Separated the fish after the 1yo fish started aggressively trying to nip at 9yo fish tail when plant was removed. Not sure why it suddenly did that [*]Yesterday - partially changed water + topped up levels, separated fish, put water conditioner & Melafix in. PH around 7.5 [*]Today - got an ammonia kit, reading was about 4 Partially changed water 15-20% twice today in my panic, not sure if this was a good idea Ammonia levels were low after the water change, but I understand I should give time after water change before measuring it? Advice needed on: Water change frequency/amount? Should I get something to lower ammonia? Anything else that could help me save them, because if they die on my watch, I'll end up suffering the same fate too Pic below is the 9yo fish. Red streaks through tail and seems torn. Top picture is from yesterday when I just noticed it, bottom picture is today. Lighting is different because I've moved the fish. Just to give you a clearer picture about its condition. Help would be greatly appreciated!

  3. Hi all I have New batch of babies hatched today. This is a young pair that has breed for me maybe 6 times the first few times the eggs were eaten. The last 2 batches the eggs have hatched and then were eaten. I think its the mum thats doing it but I cant be sure. Each time they manage to get older before being eaten. The last time they made it to day 6 from hatching. This is a big batch of babies. There was another female in the tank with them but she has been removed for a couple of weeks. So should I leave them both be or remove mum I have read of some breeders removing mum.
  4. Hey guys, My Mum came over the other day to check out my 4ft fish tank and she was smitten. She wants one the same size that she can set up on the decking out the back of their house, and she wants COLOUR by the bucketload. Can anyone suggest some fish that would work well for her? I really don't know anything about Americans and would like to look into some species that she might be interested in. Ideally: -Colourful -Fairly easy to care for -Don't get huge (would have to fit in a 4ft and I'm assuming she'd like atleast 15-20 in there) Any other pointers with American's would be handy too. Do you need some of each? Or can you have an all male display with one fish from lots of species? Cheers.
  5. Hey guys, im new to tropical fish. Ive owned guplies now for around 2 weeks in a small 30 liter tank.

I have another aqaua one precison 4 outlet which is getting fixed atm. Still in the process of finding a nice background Heres a pic of my guppy fry grow up tank (30liter) as you can ses i have a sponge filter in this which is powered by my aqaua one precesion 1200 which you can see in the back Heres my filter il be using for the 6ft Guppy fry going for the brine shrimp! 30+ of them.
