  1. Hey guys, I had a worm outbreak in my tank so we treated it with Kusuri wormer. Little did we know that our Hoplo would be affected. He's swimming around as if he is brain damaged. Lying on his side, swimming disorientated. We moved him to a different tank hoping he would recover but there has been no change in a week, likely worse. We've done water changes about every second or third day trying to flush it out but not stress him out too much as that tank was also treated but with less of it and water changes had been done before he went in there as well. Has anyone had this happen before and is there a chance he will recover? What else can we do to help him out, he's not eating and I think his time is running out.
  2. I just brought some fish home and I think they have ammonia poisoning, what can I do about this this one lying on the floor was like this when I picked her up, she occasionally swims around races for a breath on top and then goes back down to the bottom, on top of this my tank hadn't finished its fish less cycle so it's 2ppm in ammonia I have added some seachem prime to their water, how much water and how often should I change, they are in a 54Litre tank. Anything else I can do or should know about? Oh and why do the other fish go to the one on the ground and nudge it and they also lean against it slightly to straighten her up.

I also have this in the goldfish section of this forum. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. As some of you are aware, there was a story on 60 minutes tonight about a fish hatchery in Noosa. Basically a nearby macadamia farm is spraying toxic pesticides that are drifting on to her property and many others. I don't work there, but I have met Gwen and bought natives off her way before all this mess started. Gwen despite all stuff that's happened to her hatchery still remains positive and I still call her every now and then. Many of her pets have died and all her outdoor pond fish have died also Just wondering about your guys thoughts on this. I'm totally appalled personally but that's just my opinion. Cheers, Cam
  5. I just went to clean the circulation pump in our pond/1000L tub and i have found all the goldfish, 19 of, and all the bristlenose, 10 off, dead. All fish were perfectly healthy yesterday, and even now look great with a nice thick slime coat etc. Ammonia is negligable, maybe 0.25, nitrite even less, and nitrate around 40-60, definately nothing to be allarmed about. The only plausable reason i can think of is poisoning. This is very heart breaking for me as some of the goldies were inherited about 8 years ago by my mother, already a couple of years of age at that stage, 1 was a feeder survivor ( thus called lucky ), one was the first goldy the wife bought, and another was the very first fish i bought my wife. I know for a fact that it is not an age thing as some were only about 4 years of age even tho the oldest may have been closer to 10. These fish were pets, just like your dog or cat may be, never considered as feeders ( besides one when he was smaller ) so it feels like i have just had 19 of my dogs die in one hit. IT SUCKS BAD. I feel like giving up on fish completely now. The largest fantail was 17cm SL and 27cm including tail, definately not babies! Please dont get me wrong tho this is not a sympathy post! I am putting this up there to see if there is any financially plausable way of getting the water tested for poisons or will this just end up costing thousands. I really want to know how these fish died so hopefully i can either prevent it from happening again, or maybe (god help the person i dont) find who could be responsible. Thanks in advance Ronny
  6. Help from anyone who has any ideas. I have a 6x1x18" tank that is full of 1 inch featherfins growing out. I've come home from work and found two dead on the bottom and all the rest gasping heavily. A full bag of 1000 rubber bands had fallen into the tank some how and i have pulled it out, i suspect that is the problem but how. I did a 90% water change immediately from an 7x2.5x2 next to it so the same temp and both tanganyikan tanks, and alas i have lost another 3 in the last hour and the rest are still all gasping. So, i have just caught them all out and put them in a 20lt bucket with a large sponge filter from a different tank, and all new water from out of one of the tropheus tanks and another tang display tank. Any ideas i would appreciate it greatly, any medication or anything you can suggest please. Cheers, Andrew.
